Hello Everyone!

 

I am in need of some help a friend of mine sent my this picture in hopes I could help him figure out what this rash is. It seems to appear off and on and has now spread to the other leg as well . It is not itchy but is sore to the touch. 

 

Does anyone know what it is?

Your friend should see a doctor......

 

Nobody can diagnose a rash over the internet. It could be ringworm, it could be vasculitis...there are many possibilites.

Thanks! He has an appt. already for the 23rd. He's not looking for a diagnosis on the Internet , he just wanted to know if I knew of any sources or causes.

I hear you, but I have found when I have something mysterious, if I go googling and asking tons of people what they think it might be, I get a dozen different could be's, I freak myself out that it could be very serious and I end up feeling more scared and confused than before!
