I have been told its not something to worry about but I thought I read somewhere that your skin tells you about underlying issues?

Well, I am usually not itchy unless I touch my skin. Once I touch it or pick at a rough spot it starts to itch, or it doesn't itch at all. The one thing that puzzles me are the raised bumps on my skin. Wherever I touched my skin or scratched at, there will be raised bumps. Not in any particular shape either. Sometimes I won't even scratch at my skin and there will be a raised bump on my hand someplace in a weird shape. I don't understand this at all?

Another thing is I will randomly touch a spot say.. the side of my nose or my upper lip, and it will turn red and it'll be inflamed and kinda tingle. It goes away after a little while though. I have never had any issues like this before either. I'm 20 and thin, doctor always tells me I'm healthy as a horse when I go in for a checkup or to ask about symptoms.

I have raised bumps on my skin as well I also get the tingling My husband has bumps all over his head that cause him to itch Can you describe the weird shape of the bumps like on your hand(s)?My bumps also take on very weird shapes but they seem to havesome form of pattern to them (like pieces of a jigsaw puzzle thatinterconnect) Seems like our brains, neurotransmitters are misfiring in some regardinducing this odd itching sensations and odd bumps I am 51 When I go in for a checkup, they seem unconcernedabout the symptoms as well I don't think the doctors havea clue so they just brush it off and move on to the next patient I live in No Calif
