My legs are very painful and very red from the ankle to the knee.Various creams and lotions do not help.
In this instance, we do not have enough information about the duration of symptoms, your age and other medical conditions that you may have to discuss this confidently.
We assume that if you are using creams and lotions that this may have been diagnosed as a skin condition such as varicose eczema or one of the many other skin conditions that this could be, including cellulitis.
We would ask you to confirm the diagnosis of the skin condition with your general practitioner.
