On both legs it starts arond my ankles,goes upabout 4inc. then on both legs it starts about 3inc.above my knee but it is real spotty. I have seen a doctor gave a presription

for prednisone 10mg they are not doing any good

Doctor: Dr. RK, Doctor replied 6 years ago
dear customer,

The red rash me be due to some common causes like allergy, infection, dermatitis, cellulitis, etc.As per the symptoms the chances of infectious causes should be ruled out first.

The infection of the skin may cause redness and rash in such area and such symptoms.The antibiotic ointments like betadiene, soframycin is helpful in such symptoms.

The other possibility could be the allergy which may also cause such symptoms.The antihistamine drugs like cetrizine, loratadine , avil are useful in such symptoms.The steroid ointment like betasol, clobetasone, etc may be applied locally to ease the symptoms.

Let me know if you have any doubt
.

Thank you

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
