I have been posting on this website for another issue, but I thought I would ask about this one too.

Maybe 2 years ago I started developing a rash of sorts on my upper arms. Then earlier this year it started to appear on my lower legs (ankle area). Now it is starting to spread from my upper arms to my back. It is not itchy, or have any pus or anything. But it looks funny. It is a ton of tiny red to reddish bumps. I have included pictures, as I don't know how else to describe it.

I apologize for the quality... it is hard to photograph your own arms. :rolleyes:

I was told by one Dr. is might be heat rash, but Heat Rash is supposed to dissipate in cool environments, and when you are not layering clothes over it. This rash is constant no matter how long I go without sleeves or stay in cool places. (It is even here in the winter.)

Please let me know if you have any ideas!
