I'm a 16 year old girl and for the past couple years I can remember having problems with my body, it's becoming embarrassing and I've had trouble with a some specific symptoms I will list here, thanks for help.
I have really bad photosensitivity, I don't know what type but just a few minutes after I step outside my skin breaks out into a horrendous red rash, and it itches sometimes and people stare and talk about it, I have to wear shorts in gym class and it's so horrible. I'm mixed, Native American/French, my skin is somewhat tan but the redness is so red and noticeable still. It's usually only my lower legs and feet.
Then I also get either purpura or vasculitis, I'm not sure which but occasionally my arms and thighs will get covered in dark purple/crimson coloured dots and rash patterns and these will stick around for a week and then disappear for a few weeks and then pop up again? They are usually on my upper thigh area and under arm area.
And for a while I had like these funny round rashes allover my body, like it looked someone splashed bleach on me, they were redder on the outside and paler/whiter on the inside, I assumed it was ringworm, I googled it and I found it looked like either annular or polycyclic rashes, but I think it was ringworm still lol it didn't scar and they lasted a month before finally disappearing.
Plus I have had problems with anemia, I've had two, three blood tests and sometimes my anemia is good, sometimes bad, and I get shaky sometimes and I have problems with my fingers and toes turning purple or just discoloured when I'm indoors in a normal temp or in cold weather, I see other kids when they are cold and their feet and hands never look as bad as mine :\ I have to like sit on my hands or breath on them, or I'll go run them under hot water in the bathroom to make them look normal for a short time.
I live on a farm, very rural and there's lots of barbed wire fencing and broken wooden fences and lots of wild chickens and stray animals, I've cut myself a lot on all the fencing and often don't clean it out or cover it and continue working with the animals, I'm worried I might've gotten a infection and this is what caused all my problems, I don't know really, just a though. Thanks for any help everyone. :)
