I have a bright red spot on my lower leg I noticed two days ago and I'm getting a numb feeling in the back of my knee?

I'm not sure we can: Put these two things together. The red spot is MOST likely a skin condition: eczema, psoriasis, etc. But another cause is allergies, perhaps to a bug bite. Have you been in a tick area? I suppose you must consider Lyme Disease, though this is much less common than many people think. I think the spot and numbness can both be watched; if the spots enlarge/spread or numbness persists, see your Doctor ...Read more

Everytime my child gets a cold she gets red very itcy (almost mosquito bite type) spots on her lower back and legs. What could it be?

Benadryl (diphenhydramine) may help for both, but please speak with her pediatrician to better diagnose and treat this problem.
