Skin problems

I get these bumps flare up often?

Any idea what it is?

They flare up on my arms, legs, ankles, feet and are very itchy. My GP doesn’t seem to know and these flare ups started two years ago out of the blue.

I’ve previously done a treatment for scabies several times and it didn’t do anything.

  1. Have you considered looking into your daily environment for potential triggers? Sometimes things like laundry detergents, fabrics, or even certain foods can cause reactions like this. Keeping a diary of your flare-ups and what you were exposed to might help pinpoint something you hadn't thought of.

    1. Thanks for getting back.

      My GP has sent images onto dermatology but they said try treatment for scabies, which isn’t the issue.

      1. Hello again dear , thank you for responding back to us. If I may suggest obtaining an examination, either virtually or in person, with the dermatologist to progress to the next mode of treatment for this challenging rash. Sometimes it takes many tries before just the right remedy clicks for our ailment. There are so many for the doctor to choose from as seen here: What are your thoughts?

    2. Hello dear , I see how these skin eruptions can be uncomfortable and challenging. May I ask if you have been examined by a dermatologist for these flares? It may be time for a skin specialist if the GP's recommendations are not able to provide relief. In the meantime,
