I notice lately whenever I get out of the shower

I have a pronounced red blotchy rash on the top

of my knees,

back of my heels, entire toes and soles of feet.

It is always in these same places.

It lasts for about 20 minutes (?) or either completely disappears or is very faint.

Does anyone have any idea what this is and why it comes on with a shower?

Thanks!


(have lyme, ehrl., babs and taking mepron, biaxin xl and pulse art)

Yeah, I posted about this awhile ago actually. I have the same thing on my left foot, near my toes. Just four little spots that are red/blotchy after shower, but otherwise not there. And redness only lasts 20ish minutes or so like you said. Don't know what it is.

I asked my LLMD and he didn't know.... [Razz]

Could that be what Dr. C describes as hypercoagulation?

"Hypercoagulation, or thrombophilia, may be defined as reduced capillary blood flow or a greater tendency than normal for blood to coagulate, or clot. Of approximately 900 borreliosis patients that I have tested, 90 percent have hypercoagulation. Comparatively, only five percent of the general healthy population has hypercoagulation."
