Pain, red hot and tender skin with bruising and swelling of lower legs ankles and feet?

Pain, red hot and tender skin with bruising and swelling of lower legs ankles and feet?

Blood flow?: Lower leg swelling with redenning of skin does occur with poor venous return of blood flow to the body. Bruising can occur with this, but may also be related to skin changes for other reasons (thinning with age or as a medication side effect, for example) or to problems with blood coagulation.

I've been having pain & weakness in my lower legs and soreness in upper thigh. Feels as if I've been exercising all day but haven't. Any suggestions?

Need to be evaluated: Leg soreness and weakness can be from many things. Important things to rule out however are muscle disease including myositis/myopathy. Peripheral nerve problems or even spinal stenosis can cause similar leg symptoms. A good neurological physical exam is the place to start to better focus the work up.

What are the causes of swollen ankles with redness around the ankle area and lower legs?

What are the causes of swollen ankles with redness around the ankle area and lower legs?

simple cause: First and foremost, infection is out. Does anyone else in your family have this, do you stand on your feet a lot, does it get better when your legs are elevated or worse as the day progresses? Look up the terms venous insufficiency or venous stasis. Stop the water pills, stop the antibiotics, and get into a good pair of 20-30mmhg compression stockings and wear them when you are up.

My mum has unusually hard lower legs that are sore to touch, she also has pitting enema (ii checked) not sure if that helps? Will I get it?

Likely: She has long standing (brawny) edema and a reversible pitting component. Venous insufficiency, usually due to varicose veins, runs in families. She could be in heart failure of have elephantiasis, but varicosities are the usual cause of leg swelling.

What causes an itchy rash with little bumps on top of my feet and redness on lower legs? Also bumps are not itching anymore, now they are dry bumps.

What causes an itchy rash with little bumps on top of my feet and redness on lower legs? Also bumps are not itching anymore, now they are dry bumps.

Allergic reaction: Usually rashes on the top of your feet are casued by some type of allergic reaction or contact dermatits. With your lower legs involved I would rule out edema/swelling as an issue as well. Your socks or shoes could be creating the rash on your feet more so if they got wet while wearing them or if you have changed soaps or detergents. If the rash persists or returns get examined by a doctor.

Red itchey spots on lower legs?

Red itchey spots on lower legs?

Dry skin eczema: Nummular (coin shaped) eczema is extremely common on the lower legs. Dry skin starts the condition, and scratching (excoriation) worsens the itch and rash. Usually, a topical steroid is required, often a strong prescription steroid. If your condition worsens with steroids, ringworm (tinea corporis) must be ruled out. In general, I recommend shorter warm showers (not hot), nonscented lotion daily.

I have multiple scabs on my lower legs that aren't healing after months and each scab is surrounded by a small red ring.?

See a doctor: There are many causes for this. It can vary from something simple to life threatening. Looking at the rash and sores will help identify whether this is something as simple as bug bites or an insect infestation in your home or something dangerous.
