Could be minor...: Dermatology is all about appearance. I am guessing it is an erythematous papule ("red bumpy"), which honestly could be an insect bite, or contact dermatitis, both of which are common. However you mention pregnancy; there is a condition called PUPPP: Pruritic urticarial papules and plaques of pregnancy, which are terribly itchy red bumps! See what the dermatologist thinks! ...Read more

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

Time for an eval: Any time you have an injury that is not getting better as you would expect, or is getting worse with increasing pain or redness, foul discharge, etc. You should see a physician for an evaluation. You don't want a minor and easily treatable infection to turn into something much more serious or potentially life threatening. Go get it looked at to make sure it is nothing serious. Good luck. ...Read more
