For about eight years now I've been getting these little red bumps on my ankles. They sometimes appear in small clusters and sometimes are single bumps here and there. They are mildly itchy. Some of them have fluid inside. It often looks like I've been attacked by a swarm of mosquitoes - although the bumps are a bit smaller than mosquito bites. It seems to be more prevailent in the warmer months. It's not caused by shoes because I tend to go barefoot or wear sandals in the summer. It's definitely not caused by bugs because I get it in the winter too.
I'll use Rhuli from time to time. That helps in drying them up and helping them disappear but they always ALWAYS come back. Please help.
Is it possible that you have fleas in your home? I know that when they bite, they leave little red bumps if you are allergic. A girlfriend of mine had fleas in her carpet from her cat and went through the same thing.
I had to comment, because I had the very same thing!!! Exactly!
From the time I was about 10 till I was about 21, my ankles only the insides (not the outsides) would itch like crazy. I thought I was alergic (allergic) to the grass or something, but knew that wasn't it. Finally the only way to stop it was to use alcohol and vow no matter how much they itched not to ever itch them again. It was hard but they are fine now, but you know what if I get real hot and sweaty, they still itch and if I scratch them, they blister up right away....those water blisters you talked about....exactly.......good luck to you.
