When I was pregnant with my son I had red itchy bumps on my left forearm. Not seeming to be contagious, I'm around family constantly and I'm the only one with this. I went to the doctor's and they tried saying it was scabies, bed bugs, poison ivy, allergic reaction.etc. Nothing helped. After I had my son, I still had it...went to emergency room 3 times in one month because it had gotten worse. It was All over my legs, both arms, stomach, and lower back. This time I was told a couple things...Could be the start of psoriasis, the start of eczema, or an allergic reaction. They said they couldn't do much but give me some predisone (steroids), antibiotics, and hydrocorozone. Tell me that I need to see a dermatologist and send me on my way back home. Well, that was 2months ago and I still have it, haven't seen a dermatologist due to not having insurance at the moment.

Does anyone else have or know what this may/could be?

It seems to itch more when I sweat and it's hot out. on my legs they are goosebump like blisters. It itches constantly. Doesn't seem to be contagious.

Please, anything helps! :)
