Blotchy Legs

I have huge red patches on both of my legs. They are only on the left hand side (when I look down at them). They are very itchy and are starting to form lumps. They have recently started to burn. I haven't done anything different that I usually do and it is getting worse everyday.

I need help fast. I can't take the pain much longer.

Hello,
For such blotches on legs, erythema nodosum is one possibility which should be ruled out. Erythema nodosum is a type of skin inflammation that is located in a certain portion of the fatty layer of skin.It results in reddish, painful, tender lumps most commonly located in the front of the legs below the knees.

I would recommend a physician/dermatologist’s evaluation. Treatment depends on the confirmation of diagnosis.
It is very difficult to precisely confirm a diagnosis without examination and investigations and the answer is based on the medical information provided. For exact diagnosis, you are requested to consult your doctor. I sincerely hope that helps. Take care and please do keep me posted on how you are doing.
