Itchy Skin

So, my "questionable" exposure was in March 2005, and I am utterly scared to just go in and get the test done. I had a couple of questions though. First of all, back in late October, I developed a rash in the trunk area of my body. There were no raised bumps or anything, but there were dark, itchy discolorations. I was prescribied prednisone and eventually the itch went away but the marks remained until about December/January. How much of a red flag would that be for a rash to show up 8 months later? Next, I have been experiencing an itch on my forearms, forehead, and eyebrows lately. I see very small, fine bumps on my forearms when I hold them to the light, and my forehead feels dry. I'm wondering if any of this is just a mind thing, but if not, what do you all think?
