Leg Rash
I have had a rash, that has been on my legs for about a year now. I had just got a cat, which I know I am somewhat allergic to. I have red patches on my legs, that itch like crazy. I itch them sometimes until they bleed. I have used some over the counter stuff which suppresses it, but as soon as I stop using it, it comes back. They patches are red and unsightly, if you have any suggestions as to what it might be, please help!

More than likely you have eczema, which probably has nothing to do with the cat.  I suggest you apply Sarna lotion (over-the-counter) whenever you feel like scratching, as often as needed.  Then make an appointment with a skin doctor.  Eczema usually doesn't have a cause, although stress can play a role.

Take care.
