I have been having these red bumps appear on my skin for months. They appear in groups and sometimes just a bump on its own (Like in the picture). If it is a group, it will often be in a row, and in this pattern:
Bump (two inches of space) Bump (one inch of space) bump. They occur every couple of weeks, although I did have several months in between outbreaks recently. They are slightly itchy & slightly sore. Usually, they range between a half an inch to two inches in size. They have no entry point like a bite. When they fade they turn to bruises. They have occurred on my breasts, neck, shoulders, lower legs, stomach, back.View Thread
Thank you for reaching out to me. I was never able to get a diagnosis. The bumps have not appeared since I posted that basically (that picture was my last bump). Still, it went on for almost a year and after three doctors I was never able to get a diagnosis. My primary doctor believes that they will come back.
My regret is not asking to have a biopsy. If you see this message (and aren't like me and disappear for several months from the boards), could you let me know more about what has been happening to you?
I am almost 24 years old, and am basically healthy except for poor circulation (I have Raynaud's). My mother has lupus, and since Raynaud's can be a symptom of lupus I have become concerned that these bumps are autoimmune in nature.View Thread
