    I've been getting this rash on my calves for several months now .
    Its been worse than what is in this picture. Today my left leg looks red,blue
    and brownish rash. It gets worse in the heat and really bad in the shower. I'm also
    headachy and dizzy today. Has anyone ever had this or know what it is ?

    Your legs look EXACTLY like mine! I was told by my doctor that it is Vasculitis. He said it as he kind of dismissed it because we were dealing with the seizure issues that day. I am going back the first of next week and I am going to speak to him about these, issues with fingers and toes and lung issues. Will tell you what I find out!

    Thank you so much ! I've been going nuts not knowing what it could be. My grandmother also had lupus but I don't remember seeing this kind of rash on her. When I was in the hospital last Saturday my doctor said that there was some weird highs and lows in my blood work but he didn't talk to me about it. Probably because a friend of mine was visiting me at the time. I did have a CBC test done last Jan. and it showed a high red cell count but the PA I saw didn't catch on to it at the time. I saw it in the paper work later on.
    Dealing with a new lupus diagnoses and a MS relapse a the same time is exshausting and so hard.

    I get a rash like that from the sun as a side effect to the meds, which one I don't know. So really it could be anything check with a doc
