Currently I am 16 years old and I have had these strange red pin-needle dots behind my arm(around triceps), and behind my legs(around calves). I first noticed these when I was around 7, when they started showing up, and I have had them ever since. All my doctors have been unable to make a prognosis, but they look like they originate from my hair follicles. When I scratch them and take the dot off, usually a small hair is under it. Could anyone help me out?
