Mystery Rash on Top of Foot
An_246162 posted:
Hello all,

I hoping for some help here...I've never experienced any skin problems, except acne in my teenage years.

I have this "rash" on the top of my left foot (nothing on right foot), it does not itch, it looks like tiny red pinpoint dots close together. There are a few of these dots extending up my shin on this leg. My left ankle is also slight swollen, not painful. It has been swollen for awhile but does not bother me.

I don't remember being bitten or stung by anything. Any ideas? Could this be some sort of allergic reaction? I haven't taken any new medications.
