Abstract

Exercise induced vasculitis (or purpura) is usually misdiagnosed and ignored in the literature, although it is not uncommon. We report two female patients who developed a rash on the lower legs after walking all day long. The rash was red, itchy with a burning sensation. The lesions resolved after a few days with and without steroid treatment. Allergic etiology was suspected, therefore they were sent to the allergy clinic for evaluation. Exercise-induced vasculitis tends to occur in healthy people, especially in hot weather. Extensive investigation with blood or allergy tests is not needed.
