My mother needs help.She has been to 5 diff. doctors with her skin lesions and know one can tell her what it is. She has flat red sores(browner towards the edges) about the size of quarters on her legs.She has about 15 on each leg and they are getting worse.She has had these for about 3 years.They do seem to itch sometimes but that may be from dry skin(not sure)They ooze sometimes and never appear to be flakey.Ulcerated leg has been ruled out and she is getting worried.She doesnt seem to have any other sypmtoms but she can get uncomfortable at times with her legs.Any direction you can give would be helpful.They tested her for lupus today after she mentioned it but symptoms dont seem to match
