It started with a hot feeling on my leg. I can't tell if it's spreading but perhaps a little. No, it's not warm to the touch but rather just hard and rough.

I'm seeing a nurse at a large dermatology practice. I'm supposed to go back Monday. Do you think I should call her tomorrow and go in earlier? Weekends can get pretty LONG.
Is wrinkled skin at the site part of stasis dermatitis?
