A couple weeks ago I started to get red bumps on the tops of my hands and feet. The bumps started to spread up the uunderside of my arm and my lower leg. Now the bumps are all over my legs and all over my chest back and upper arms/shoulders. They are extremely itchy and they get flacky as I itch. I was wondering I this may o happened because i cut my arm on the side of a pool a couple days beore this happened. Can someone please help me by telling me what I have or any cures or relief methods.
It sounds like an allergic reaction. Try not to scratch the areas and you can buy anti-itch lotions at almost any store. Do you have any allergy medication/antihistamines? Try and see if that helps with it. If the rash doesn't go away in a week or so, make a doctor's appointment.
