recently my legs broke out in a rash, which is in the area apprx. from the lower portions of each calve terminating midway at the ankle (deliniated by a line where the tops of my socks rest), i started a new job and they are constantly tossing hot water mixed with bleach on the floors about me always and I assume this new assault on my fragile person to be the root of my woes: it does not itch at all, but it is tender, which owes more to the swelling present, that I cannot get to subside (laid up the other night for like 6hrs with my feet in the air), anyways i seem to be rambling, the appearance of the rash is solid pink-red with areas appearing somewhat darker, but no boils bursting, um.. the skin does get light with pressure touching it (dunno if that helps), for the most part I am in good health, havent been to the doctor for some many years, and my allergies range in the "average", eg. poison ivy, mosquito bites, etc, not on any medication at present, never have been, any help folks? perhaps suggestions so I can at least work comfortably, should I wear knee-high socks?
