Patches of Red Bumps - NOT Itchy

I am a 26 year old female who has a wonderful variety of undiagnosed (and a few diagnosed) physical conditions, but overall I'm in reasonably good health and always good humor. :)

My health mystery of the season are these ugly patches of skin that I'm finding here and there. It's one thing to be sick on the inside, but now my body insists on showcasing it's problems to the world. Yippee.

Anywho - a few months ago, I noticed a dry, raised patch of skin on my left elbow that is not itchy. Since then the patch has stayed and is actually slowly growing in that area; spreading up my left forearm. The weird thing is that the same raised, red patch appears and disappears on other parts of my body: a dot on the corner of my left eye, on my left eyelid, a dot on my right hand - and now in addition to my elbow I currently have a dot on my left pointer finger and a small patch along my right "eyeline" of my eye.

Like previous users have mentioned, everything I've looked up/seen has been for ITCHY red patches. That is not the case here - they're not itchy or bothersome in the least (except for being kinda gross-looking). I've also checked out the links on this topic for not-itchy red patches, and they don't really look like what I've got.

Anybody happen to go to a doctor with something similar and have some insight? I dig homeopathic remedies also, if anyone has something I could try (besides lotion, which I've been doing- doesn't help).

Thanks so much!
