Horrible word I know but really no other word for it this week! Alarmingly I had a VERY PECULIAR looking rash suddenly appear on my feet and legs this week. When I first noticed it I was very thankful I felt healthy, no fever, no nausea or sickness of any kind. Just this AWFUL rash!
That was Monday night so Tuesday saw me off to the doctor to see what it was. He wasn't really sure and sent me off for blood tests to eliminate possible causes. He did set my mind at ease by saying he thought it was likely an allergic reaction to something. Next day I saw him again for the blood test results and bacterial and viral infections had been excluded. So we think an allergy to something unknown. The rash is on both my feet, ankles and both legs right up the backs of my thighs. Very peculiar indeed and we were unable to detect any likely cause. The doctor has me on oral cortisone and I have to return to see him next week. The pic above shows one of the milder areas of the rash. It is much more extensive in places. One HUGE positive is that it is not itchy at all. I just hope the cortisone works and it goes away! I am not a person prone to skin rashes and this one is just so unsightly!
