Left leg really sure. X-rays show no break/chip. Now small red rash/bump on back of thigh above knee. Could this be shingles?

Shingles?: Shingles is a reactivation of the chicken pox virus. Therefore, for it to be shingles, the rash must look like chicken pox. The rash starts out as vesicles, or small sized fluid blisters that eventually scab over. If this is what you see, it could be shingles and you should see a doctor right away to be placed on antiviral medication to stave off post herpetic neuralgia, a very painful condition. ...Read more

How accurate is a d dimmer test.Had 2 were negative..My left leg is still a little swollen and a little red some pain.What can cause these symptoms?

How accurate is a d dimmer test.Had 2 were negative..My left leg is still a little swollen and a little red some pain.What  can cause these symptoms?

Pretty good: A ddimer, if negative is very accurate. There are many conditions that cause a positive ddimer, but clots nearly always do. If you are really worried, an ultrasound can tell you if there is a clot or not. Without more history it is difficult to say exactly what is going on. Do you have an autoimmune condition? Infection? What did your doc say about it? Ddimer, not perfect, but very good. ...Read more

I have noticed recently that my left leg has some circular red things and I don't have any other symptoms rather than this cosmetic issue. Is it bad?

R/O ECZEMA: Eczema /Allergic dermatitis is especially prevalent in these areas of the body. It responds to topical & oral steroids with flare. I also add in ZYRTEC&ZANTAC to block both histamine receptors. If SX. Persist or worsen get Derm consult. Also fungal infection needs to be evaluated with a woods lamp. Lastly blood work needs to be done if Lyme Disease is suspected ...Read more

One look is worth a: 1000 words. A broad differential would be; bug bites of some type, a viral rash, some broken blood vessels, contact dermatitis from some plant, localized allergic reaction. If they cause you no symptoms it is probably safe to watch for 7-10 days and see if they go away. You could also try to use an over the counter steroid cream. ...Read more

Needs evaluation!: The most concerning thing about your question is the distribution of the symptoms: left arm and left leg. It would be more reassuring if it was all over. This needs full neurologic evaluation; have your doctor refer you to a neurologist. Causes might range from a problem with your sympathetic nervous system to MS ... or just normal for you. But it needs to be checked our thoroughly. Good wishes:) ...Read more

Chronic lymphedema: Your lymphatic system that drains fluids from various body parts was likely inflamed during the cellulitis. The resulting leg swelling can take months to years to forever to completely resolve. Use compression hose, elevate leg as much as possible above level of heart and consider use of a compression machine or massage to reduce the fluid burden. Consult with a vascular surgeon may be helpful. ...Read more
