Bite like reactions

Since I seem to be prone to them, I have done a lot of research..but can't find much. Red blotches, look like shingles. Itch. Small spot..itches like crazy all around it. Next day a red blotch about the size of a half dollar. Next day size of two half dollars. Stll itching. Fourth day, fading, no more itch. Under my arm, behind the leg, on my belly, three on my ankle, on my leg. Dermotologist has no idea. "You have an insect bite". No I don't. I live in the desert, bugs are few and far between. It is common with only CLL. Several sources say if , as a Doctor, your patient has one, check him for CLL. I have had CLL since 1995 but didn't know it until 2005.
So, does this ring any bells with anyone?

Re: Bite like reactions

I was diagnosed with CLL march 2007. Looking back.. my white blood count had been increasing for 4 yrs prior. I never thought about it until now. but yes.. I would have a bump that would turn into a rash (little red bumps) that just would appear out of nowhere and "itch like no tomorrow" It would last for a few days then go away. I myself thought something bit me. I would normally get them on my arms.. sometimes on legs and chest. Never in a million years would I have thought the two might be connected. WOW.. not thats interesting!!
