Please help! For the last two years I've gotten itchy red bumps on my back that look very similar to mosquito bites and itch like them as well. They begin as just raised bumps but the moment I touch them they turn red on the bump and the immediate surrounding area. They only appear on my back when I sweat or when my back touches hot water. What are they? They've slowly begun to spread to the top of my chest and a little on my torso. They hand around until my body has cooled off. My doctor doesn't know and I'm sick of it. I can't even be in my bathing suit in the sun because they break out and are really noticeable and not to mention uncomfortable!
