I am78 male.
About 6 weeks the first time and about 5 days 1 year later.
Not at that time, but have had lots of problems with legs ( muscles/joints) and gout and tendonitis last 2 years. Many other problems with heart disease (I actually died 4 years ago) and medications for last 28 years, not really relevant to lameness when I was 12. No pictures, doctor at time first thought mosquito bites but then came up with this triple barrelled name with the name in question or something similar included. The red blotches were about 1 1/2 inches in dia.

Thank you for that additional information.

Unfortunately, without more information, pictures, medical records, etc from when this occurred, it is impossible for me to come up with the cause of these red blotches and lameness your experienced over six decades ago.....

I'm good but I'm not THAT good! ;)

The good news? It is very, very, very unlikely that that event you experienced as a child is having any impact on your health and wellness now.

Does this make sense to you?

I realize that this was not the answer you were hoping to hear but it would be unfair to you and unprofessional of me were I provide you with anything less than truthful and honest information.

Even though my answer was not quite what you were hoping for, please understand that my priority was to provide you with the most honest information. With that in consideration, I hope that you found my answer useful. Please click the excellent feedback button so that I can receive credit for my efforts.
