I don't want to worry you but I would ask the doctor to check for lupus. It is a disease that causes rashes and skin problems because the immune system attacks the collagen in the body. Collagen is in all tissue but more in joints and skin. It can be skin anywhere on the body even the mouth. I was tested after getting a weird rash on my face. I was asked if I have had joint pain. I have had it all my life mostly but at least since I was 20. I was 30 when I was tested. They tested me and found I had no arthritis in my body at all. My tests were inconclusive. they said come back if it gets worse. For some, Lupus may never be any worse than mild arthritis and an occasional unexplained skin rash. It can be debilitating and even deadly though if it attacks your internal organs It is a disease that can strike at any age and though it is more common in women, men get it too. There is no cure but it is treatable. I would check into it anyway. I wish you all the best.
