Can Leukemia Cause Skin Lesions

I have gotten several lesions on my body over the past 2 months, my Dr. Just said there was a knot on my arm with infection, she gave antibiotics, used these with no relief, sores are getting deeper and more painful, went to hospital was prescribed prednisone for and allergic reaction, other symptoms are night sweats, bruising, I mean real easy, and my blood is really sticky, almost like glue, the glands on my neck are swollen and I have a consistant headache. Can anyone offer advice, no test have been made by Dr. Or hospital.

Thank you for asking at Ehealth forum!

I read your question and i understand your concern.
As you are prone to infections,I would suggest you to have blood culture &sensitivity for bacteria and fungi and pus cells for culture &sensitivity if feasible.
I hope it helps. Stay in touch with your healthcare provider for further guidance as our answers are just for education and counselling purposes and cannot be an alternative to actual visit to a doctor.
Take care
