    Can’t ID itchy red spot

    Hi there, I can’t tell what this is. It’s a single red dot that itches and eventually scabs over (as it heals possibly, I only have one in the stage of healing I THINK) I have about 4. One on the lower leg, one on the thigh, one on the forearm and maybe one on the face. Each raised spot is reddish with a lighter red circl around it.

    For the past 3 months, I have been dealing with an insane and progressive itch. I had been prescribed a liquid cough syrup (hydrocodone) for bronchitis. Normally narcotic meds make my hands mildly itchy for several days once off of the meds. Initially, my palms and feet started to itch very badly and worse at night. I ended up taking Benadryl which helped for a day and then did not help anymore. I visited the doctor who put me on Prednisone. While on the meds, I did not have any itching. After completing....

I thought my dog got into poison ivy and touching him I got it. Washed my hands in cold water with soap constantly. 7pm went to pharmacy got $40 in poison Ivy medicines....

Back in 2010 I started working in SE Asia, particularly Laos. Within 2 years (by 2012) I started getting mouth sores more often when eating citrus foods. So, I avoided them. By 2013, I was starting to have strange digestive issues. By 2014 I started down a medical rabbit-hole nightmare as I sought a diagnosis. No diagnosis came....
