Just read that KS will cause swelling of the legs. EXACTLY WHAT PART? -upper or lower? Does a female who tested at 4 and a half months need to worry about swelling?

Response from Dr. Feinberg

For KS to cause leg swelling would mean that it is fairly advanced and has been there for a while. It isn't very plausible that this could develop so quickly. There are other more common causes of leg swelling. See your doctor for an evaluation.

Itching in the vaginal area, tiny red bumps that itch on my stomach.
