Question: Constant sores on legs
|Mamaof3 - Tue Jan 22, 2008 4:43 pm|
For about 10 years(give or take some); I have had sores on my legs constantly. They appear for no reason. All the doctors I've seen have not noticed except one. He asked if I have ever seen a dermatologist and I said no. Nothing further was said. Any insight to what this could would be greatly appreciated.

I also wanted to add that I have had tingling in the back of both legs here recently.

Probably the most concerning leg sores are related to circulatory problems, varicose veins, or diabetes. You haven't given a lot of information but since your doctor asked if you had seen a dermatologist, I am guessing the sense is that it is a skin problem. There are many skin ailments that can result in sores such as psoriasis, eczema, hives, folliculitis, hypersensitivities, etc. For this reason I would concur with the recommendation to see a dermatologist.
