Here's a problem I've had for a few weeks, and I have absolutely no idea what this is or what causes it. At first I thought they were mosquito bites, though I thought December was a little late to get those, and it was odd they weren't round. But the skin was itching, raised, and some were round.
It took me weeks to find out it starts with what looks like a scratch, long or short, though I don't ever remember scraping against anything or scratching myself (and my nails aren't THAT long...). The scratch then starts to raise into a welt and starts itching. I put mosquito bite gel or lotion on, and it'll stop and go away.
Does anyone have any idea what the heck this is and how to make it stop??? Any ideas, suggestions, and directions are welcome.
ETA: Except for one occasion when I had welts on my shoulder, this always happens on my forearms...
