HELP-random recurring red bumps

for the past 6 weeks, I have had random red bumps occuring on my skin in different places, never the same place and never in clusters....They will occur on my legs mostly, once under my arm, once on my chest, once a tiny one on my cheek...just random places (both sides of body). Sometimes they appear to be pus filled(rarely) sometimes they are tiny, somethimes they can be the size of a pea, and they never go past just a red bump. Some only last not even a day, others will last about 4-5 days. The very first sign is itching, then after I itch it some, it becomes somewhat painful. My mother said shingles is a possibility since my case of chicken pox when I was 2 was pretty mild, however, do shingles keep recurring after 6 weeks? also, these bumps never cluster like shingles is supposed to, and occurs anywhere on my body...not just one side. I really am confused as to what I could have, and can't visit a skin doctor anytime soon since I'm in college...couldit be from perhaps having an std such as herpes 1or 2???....if anyone has any idea of what this could possibly be please give me at least some sort of idea....thank you very much

Re: HELP-random recurring red bumps

I was just reading through the different topics and i came across your entry I thought i was going out of my mine how you describe the "bumps" are exactly what i have been experiencing for about the past month or two ...I feel like i have a itch and then when i look its like a very small pimple that itches than becomes sore and then just goes away after a day or so. I have them the worst under my arms but have also had them on my legs and stuff..I have no clue what this is so if anyone does please let us know...
