I have derm appt - but in mean time I have red bumpy ITCHY rash on part of lower right leg. It's now started on left. What could this be?!

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

My 11 year old has scattered severe bruising all over her legs, ringing in her ears, dizziness, headaches and a red bumpy rash? Chance of leukemia?

Needs to be tested: I would have a CBC (complete blood count) performed today. The bruising makes me think about low platelets. This can happen in leukemia, but is also common in post-infectious situations like itp. Her headaches and ringing in her ears could be viral infection, or even bacterial infection. However, headaches can be seen with anemia. A simple blood test will be very helpful. Good luck. ...Read more

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
