Molten rash on legs

Molten rash on legs

Hi I'm 37 diagnosed with fibromyalgia, probable MCTD, hypothyroidism, and was told the purplish rash on my legs (worse on knees) was livedo recularis. I'm being tested for APS but the APS group says there rash looks different. Also it's on my arms but mostly my legs. It's been visible everyday for 3 or more years. On bad days it actually hurts a lot on my knees and turns purple and black but if I apply heat it turns bright red. Anyone recognize my rash?

Well results are finally back the only one that was positive was the lupus anticoagulant. So dr has decided to refer me to a hematologist.

Hi have you had any ANA tests done? This could be a vasculitis rash
