I have gained 40 lbs. in the last year and a half (alot in my abdomen). In August 2009, my legs started retaining alot of fluid (pitting edema) and my face and chest started looking very pink. In January of this year I developed an approx. 5"x5" red mark(almost looks like sunburn-not rashy, just red) on my abdomen. It has been there for almost a month now. Does this make any sense to anyone? Please help.
