Just a quick note to say hi!
for your ankle rash compilation:
I am fair-skinned
53and have gotten it since about 35
do not have vericose veins (some spider)
I am heavy, don't golf or walk/run regularly for lengths
I get this rash after a whole day of walking and standing - Disneyland, festivals and now the County Fair. It's usually warm, but once was November. I almost always wear long pants and frequently ankle socks, tho not this time. There may be something to suspicions of sodium - at these activities you are likely to eat "fair food" and I probably never drink enough water.
My rash is not swollen or itchy and is on it's fifth day almost gone.
Thanks for looking into this for all of us!
ever consider intestinal parasites,try antiparasite herbs
Hi - Went on a 9.5 hr hike yesterday, in Silverthorne, CO - hot, very dry. I am 37, very active (though biking mostly this summer, not hiking). Have no vericous (yikes - sp?) or spider veins. Live in CO (dry climate). After the hike and my shower, I noticed a red red rash, not bumpy on both inner ankles around my sock line. My ankles were also VERY swollen and still are today (the day after, though they have gone down a tiny bit). Found your site and thought I would give you my info. This is the first time this has happened to me (btw, I am a female, blond, not fair skinned though). I think I will go soak in cold water after reading your post and hope this goes away quick and doesn't happen again in two weeks when I climb Mt. Holy Cross. Oh and I do not have itching or pain....
Just a quick note to say hi!
I left a post on your "Golfer's Vasculitis" blog and wondered if you have any comments on it?
Happy New Year to you.
Any significant information about this golpher's vasculitis since we were last in touch?
I am a 46yr F first got "the rash" in Disney @28 yrs. Recently had a very bad caseon vacation we do alot of walking/standing & I always get the rash. It's becoming more painful as the years go on & is now causing a fever on the 2nd night.Always in warm weather. Even if I stand or walk for a short period of time. The rash is deeper red in color, w/ PAINFUL BURN/ tingle sensation, feels very tight like skin can split open.It is from the ankle area up. Rash takes longer now to go away & is leaving discoloration. It really hurts & burns more now when I get it, never itches.Starts out with a burning tingling sensation then pops out in red hive like rash on my calves, then changes even a darker red, then looks blood red with tiny broken capillarys. My twin also gets it w/ fever.
Finally found answer to my prayers on this site. I have been suffering with this leg rash for years & now know what it is, Golfer's Vasculitis. If you find of any MD who would like to study this please inform me. Both my twin sister & I get this horrid rash. I am so very interested in any information on preventitive methods, treatments for this that you might come across. Please send me anything on this matter. Thank you
