| | painful itching red irritated rash on calf
hello my name is heather, i'm 18 years old, and have NO idea what's wrong with my leg. its a small rash right below the bend of my left knee on my calf. i have psoriosis, and at first i thought it was that. it started out looking/feeling like psoriosis but after a day or two the more i scratched the worse it go. it got larger (about twice the size) the whole area is redish purple. and it will scab over. and i can peel the scab right off. usually the scab is greenish. sometimes its black. it itches SEVERLY (painfully i might add) . so bad that i can hardly stand it. when i start to itch it or even if something touches it too hard or scraps it it starts to ooze clear liquid. it's been there for about a 2 weeks to a month. i *think* it's slowly spreading.. at least i'm getting more rashes around that area, altho none of them are nearly severe as the main rash. i don't have health insurance and i can't exactly afford to go see a doctor and i would REALLY apprieciate help of any kind. i honestly don't know what to do and i'm worried.
^^ thank you in advance for you time
