First let me start with the basics. I am 35 clinically obese 5'10 white male.

I woke up the other day with a rash on my right lower leg on the shin it itched but did not hurt. The skin is a little red in a specific area and I have 2 small purple spots on it.

The next day I woke up with the same thing on my left leg but on the calve and I scratched it till it felt better, when I woke up the next day there was what appeared to be a bruise about the size of a credit card surrounded by red skin and it hurt like ***l to the touch. When I would stand up after laying down for a while it felt like sand was rushing through my leg from the knee down and it would hurt like ***l for a bit but then sort of mellow out. it feels like it is mainly on the skin as the muscles don't hurt. I don't notice any swelling and my foot feels fine as in it doesn't feel like its asleep or anything. I tried checking it out but could not find anything. Any help you would give would be greatly appreciated.
