I have a rash that doesnt fade?

I have a puple spot/ bruise like rash on my thigh, I first noticed it a few days ago but now ive noticed that it has come onto my other leg. It doesnt fade when I put a see through glass on it and its only a little patch on both legs. 
The one on my left leg is really itchy, but on my right it isnt. 

I havnt got any flu like symptoms but I think I may be anemic again (feel exactly the same as last time I had it... I should go to the doctors to get some more iron tablets). 
Im only 19 and female. 

I also havnt ate/ used anything new recently so it cant be hives. 

Has anyone had a similar experience or know what it is? 
Or is there a better forum I can post it in?

Hello,
It can be a bruise or lichen planus. Lichen planus is an inflammatory disease that affects the skin and the oral mucosa, and presents itself in the form of papules(flat spots) or rashes. It is an itchy papular eruption characterized by its violaceous color.

You need to get it checked from a dermatologist to confirm the 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.
