This summer I got a goose bump type rash across both of my knuckles...the bumps were rough and hard....they didn't itch...it was after I finally got outside and into the sunshine...i live in a northern climate with very short summers.... that rash has faded now but for the second summer in a row, I am getting red spots in random places on my body that look just like mosquito bites....they are smaller than a typical bite on me....but they itch, just not as bad as a mosquito.....i know they aren't mosquitoes since I haven't seen anything biting me and one is on my stomach and one is right under where my bra elastic would be.... these "bites" hang around for a long time...like a month or more....and they get like a chicken pox mark where they get water under the top layer of skin...that happens within a couple days of them appearing.... could this be a reaction to the sun? this has only happened in the last 2 summers and the rash on my hands appeared for the first time this summer... anyone else have these issues? the knuckle rash kind of startled me when i read about Lupus and rashes...i had forgotten lupus causes some type of rash....and the bite like things are new.....maybe minnesota has become home to some type of invisible biting bug....or, ? one thing i noticed is that the bites seem to come out with two of them about an inch apart ...some are singles but the two near each other seems to be a pattern... i don't like the fact that they leave a faint scar....i have scars on my arms from the "bites" last year.... anyone have this, too? do you know what the heck it is and how to stop it?
