Joint Pain plus red lumps / bumps / spots on my legs and arms...getting worse!

About 2 1/2 months ago I woke up and had big and small red lumps / bumps / spots under the skill; on my legs and some around my elbows, they are not itchy but sore when I press on them. As well as this my ankles, knees and elbows (joints basically) were in incredible pain when I moved or did anything; I also had a tight sore chest and throat but that didn’t seem so big in comparison.

After going to the doctors several times, and taking inflammatory pills, anti-biotic etc the pain and bumps were still there just getting worse. So I was recommended to see a Rheumatologist at the hospital, they believed it could be some viral infection and my body was just reacting to it. I have now been taking some anti-inflammatory pills that are much stronger; for the last 3 weeks and the bumps on legs have gone down a little and turning a bruise colour - but they are still coming up and moving their way up the body slowly, more appearing and disappearing on a daily basis on the whole of my arms and the back of my legs and knees, as well as some patches on my thighs now. I just don't know what to do and it is making my life ***l! Any help would really be appreciated.
