3 months ago i felt a small lump on the back of my scalp like a small mosquito bite, It was very itchy and within 2 nights my scalp had 3-4 large odd shaped welts (not red or dry flaky) which were extremely itchy.

At this time I was working inter-state and had to see a small doctors clinic which didnt do much.

Only days later my palms became quite swollen and sore like a ringworm, also on one elbow a large ringworm like welt which were very itchy. It was strange because the ringworm like welt only lasted a couple of days.
However I had alergy tests done and nothing major (dust, dustmites, and grass)

The welts on my head come and go, they re appear very fast and are always shaped differently in different spots.

It has now been over 3 months and the problem still persisting on and off, at the moment it is at its worst! I also get strange itches on all parts of my body more than usual, including these ringworm type welts which come and go but are very itchy!

I appreciate any help at all as I cannot see a doctor for approx another 3 weeks!

thank you
