A rash that goes away, and a rash as you describe this that goes away is almost always
a. allergic reaction
b. reaction to something the leg came into contact with.
c. allergic reaction to an insect bite.
There are almost no serious diseases that would do this.
Bad veins in the legs can give this appearance as well, but this would essentially become continuous.
