acne on legs??
 
OK i have these little red spots on the back of my legs(like on my calves and my hamstrings). Some are flat, some are kinda purple, and a few are like tiny pimples. I dont know if this is acne or what. Does anyone know what this is and what i can do about it?

hey i had the same thing.. mine were purple too my doctor said that it has something to do with the amount of oxygen circulation in your legs is different and thats why they are purple. i dont remember exactly what she said but yeah. just treat it like normal acne.. the accutane made mine go away right away.. good luck

hey thanks alot A.Cutane. But only a few are purple, and most are like tiny red flat dots. Im not going on accutane, at least not yet so does anyone else know what i could do for these.
