skin redness that looks like a sunburn but isn't

can tissue/muscle inflammation cause your skin to look red like a sunburn? i've had redness on my chest for years but it wasn't something that has always been there. nurse said today it looks like you've been out in the sun, but I haven't, except for driving to my dr appt. I hate the sun, it makes me sick getting out in it so I don't which really should be obvious to the eye as light complected as I am. I also noticed extra redness on my arms and face today. it's normally red anyways in areas but was much more noticable today (darker). I have had past comments too from nurses but this isn't a sunburn. It also isn't an allergy or skin disorder like eczema or psoriasis, however am having inflammatory and peeling issues all over my hands, but not elsewhere. any ideas?
