Okay so for about 3 years I've had dry, itchy skin. For the past year and a half though, only my legs have been itchy. I went to my doctor and she told me it was eczema, but a friend of mine has eczema and it looks nothing like this.

So I went to see a dermatologist and he told me it was a rash due to shaving, so he told me to stop shaving for a week or two and see if it stopped itching. Of course, it didn't. It actually got worse.

About 7 months ago I started getting these marks on my legs that sometimes look like hives but other times look like raised bug bites. I went to see another doctor, and she didn't know what was wrong. She told me to use lotion on my legs every day after getting out of the shower, but nothing has helped. I still have nasty bumps and really itchy skin. I need help!
