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.See 1 more doctor answer

Bites or rash: The word rash is used for a wide variety of skin disorders, and is really not a medical terminology. Bites could be called skin rashes by a lay person.
