Hi all i have just been surfing your site, anyway this has only happened in the last 2 days

1, Something has been biting me well i have bite marks on my legs

2, they end up turning purple

3, it started spreading

4, it is as itchy as heck i have stopped scratching and just rub it now, i have booked in for the doctors at 4:15 tomorrow, but i was wondering if anyone had an idea what it would be here first

here are some pics i took today, so you can get a view on what you are seeing!

My right leg is not as bad as my left, but i did noticed tonight that it has more red dots on it turning purple

  • I've seen that as a type of herpes 2 outbreak, a deviant type. If I were you I would definitely insist on a blood test for herpes 2, maybe herpes 8 and syphilis. Have you have an HIV test, too?Or, you have a strange insect bite, but hsv is often mistaken for insect bites.

  • Hey there, I hope you've managed to diagnose your condition.Sometimes HPV (Human papillomavirus) can be quite tricky and pull in symptoms not likely to what should be expected. Only 2 types of HPV cause genital warts but there are loads of other types HPV that can be sometimes tricky to diagnose to administrate the correct treatment.In case you suspect it's a HPV, genital warts treatment resource online will definitely help you with anything you need, these guys are really helpful, at least they were to me (helped me for free). You can send them an email or even chat them via live messenger.Best of luck to you.Sanata
