A skin rash
Approximately one in 30 patients with leukemia may have a skin rash falling into one of two categories: skin leukemia, or a rash caused by Sweet’s syndrome, an inflammatory skin condition commonly associated with leukemia. The skin’s leukemia almost always seems to have a lump inserted into your skin. A small mound begins to grow – and occasionally, it may be a plaque-like condition. On the other hand, the rashes of the sweet syndrome appear red and furious – often associated with a high-grade fever, similar to an allergic reaction. While skin rashes occur in all shapes and sizes, rashes related to leukemia have one thing in common: they continuously tend to grow and spread.
