I have been breaking out in hives in different parts of my body and they are itchy. I keep scratching them but I have recently tried hydrocortisone creme to relieve the itchy feeling. I have never had these welts before and they are pink in color and I have developed them in the back of my legs (upper thigh area), on the sides of my neck, upper arm, around the belly-button and on the tummy. What could these pink blotches be? They are incredibly itchy and annoying. They don't hurt so much as they itch - ALOT! Do you have any idea what they could be? They look like mosquito bites but its wintry and snowy outside and I havent seen one mosquito. The more I scratch them, the more pink they become; they also get a little bigger. This morning I got 2 more on my fingers.
Any ideas about what this skin problem can be?
