Small red spots on legs that don't hurt or itch
I've had red, barely raised, non-itchy spots on the top of my feet and lower legs where they were exposed at a bonfire 5 nights ago http://imageshack.us/g/1/10184009/
At first I thought they were bug bites, but they don't itch, then heat rash (I was close to a hot fire and wear very thick Eucerine body lotion) but again, no itching. They look like purpura but my immune system shouldn't be that bad as I eat well and exercise. I've been achey (achy) but I also recently did 3 hours of gardening and walked for six miles over the past few days and the aching muscles are consistent with that type of work. I also had diarrhea yesterday and a gassy stomach ache, but it's gone today. I'm not sure if those symptoms are related or just normal reaction to stress on my body.
I attempted to "pop" some and clear liquid came out (trapped sweat consistent with heat rash?), no blood. The ones I "popped" turn white with pressure but the ones I didn't stay red. I need to figure out if I'll need to visit a doctor because I have no insurance and not much money to cover a doctor's visit so I really don't want to spend the money if it's nothing major.
