I went on a trip to Washington D.C. recently and ever sinced I arrived back, I have these tiny itchy bumps on the backside of my hands, arms, and below my knee. They are itchy and very hard to see- only noticable if you look at an angle. There are lots of them, but they're so small that you can't pop them or anything. They just recently spread to below my knee caps, now. I don't know if I should go get it checked out. I am too embarrassed to ask my mom about it. Is there something wrong with me? I don't know if it's a big deal or not- perhaps just an allergic reaction? I do not know if I should be worried about this. Is there some home remedy to get rid of them? Please help me.
I wish I knew. I live about 100 miles northwest of philadelphia. I haven't been anywhere. I barely have stepped off my porch, yet I have the same thing. My dogs only get in vegetation right in front of my porch, so I don't think they spread something to me. They itch unbelievably. Some of them were tiny blisters that popped with me scratching. I started with them last Thursday. I went and got cortisone cream yesterday. I do know that pollen has been flying like crazy. Whether that has something to do with it, I don't know. The closest thing it looks like is a rash from ragweed, but that's usually in the fall.
Yes a steroid cream will work.
