Skin areas feel like a million needles...

Every so often (sometimes months in between), I get a low grade fever (feels like I'm about to get the flu), then the next day there will be approx. a 5" x 5" area somewhere on my body (location is never the same) that feels, well, windburned...........and if my jeans/shirt/bedsheets...anything...comes into contact with that spot, it feels as if a million little needles are stabbing me. The only way I can really describe it is that it feels like I've gotten windburn in below zero temps, but there's no cold, or wind.
I've been tested for autoimmune diseases and nothing comes up. Any ideas?

It causes similar hope this helps...
