Rashes.. all over. (Here is the photo.)

I've had rashes all over for at least 6 months, maybe longer. They are more visible after a hot shower, but are still always visible.

I eat pretty much the same foods all the time, and generally use the same shower gels/shampoos.

They don't iche. I don't think they're bug bites. I went swimming in a lake earlier in the year, but I think these existed before that.

I'm in my 20s. White, female, fair skinned. No recent sun exposure. Large. The rashes are on my side/stomach, back, sometimes legs. I don't have any allergies or health conditions. Drink a lot of milk/dairy. The rashes are still there, even after moving, washing sheets (and getting new ones), wearing same clothing items or getting new ones, while vacationing elsewhere, while omitting dairy products a few days, while trying other foods a few days. Rashes are still there, no matter if it's cold or hot outside.

What could this be?

Attached is a photo of my upper leg.

Hello,
From the symptoms it can be contact dermatitis, allergic reaction, hives, pityriasis rosea, psoriasis or eczema. Since the rash has been present for 2 years, I suggest you to get an evaluation done from a dermatologist for these possibilities and get a biopsy skin done.

It is very difficult to precisely confirm a diagnosis without examination and investigations and the answer is based on the medical information provided. For exact diagnosis, you are requested to consult your dermatologist. I sincerely hope that helps. Take care and please do keep me posted on how you are doing.
