I suffer with bad knees and knee pain and now I have a purple patch on the back of my leg and I get hot spots allover my legs..why and what is it?

In brief: Be seen

Skin changes are usually not associated with problems inside the knee itself, so it is probably unrelated to your " bad knees".
There are a number of potential causes. I would not hesitate to be seen to have it diagnosed.
