My feet are red, though all I've been doing is sitting, and I have a persistent red rash on my lower legs in the ankle area. Nothing itches or burns, but this is a new symptom and I'd like some insight into what is causing this.
JA: OK. The Doctor will need to help you with this. Is there anything else important you think the Doctor should know?
