Re: red bumps on hands, knees, elbows
i am a 19 yr old female and ever since i can remember i get recurring itchy red bumps on the most dry areas of my body. when i was in the seventh grade i was babysitting an infant who had the fifth disease and a few days later these itchy red bumps spread so quickly all over my hands, elbows, knees, and feet. i also got them inside my throat.
i went to the doctor and he obviously diagnosed me with the fifth disease and gave me meds to kill the virus.
still to this day however i get these bumps...mostly on my knuckles but sometimes i break out so badly on my knees that it becomes uncomfortable to wear anything that rubs my knees.
it is nice to hear of others having this problem because no one i have met has ever had this problem and when i went to the dermatologist she couldnt explain why they were happening.
one thing i do notice is they pop up when i am on my cycle, or when i am very stressed or sick.
