red bumps with white halos-any ideas?

I have many red spots that look like large mosquito bites with white halos around them. I have them from my ankles to my chest. They don't itch because I take antihistamines. I have had them about 2 weeks. The older ones are starting to fade away, but I keep getting new ones. I thought maybe hives, but every picture I have seen of hives does not look like this.
The doctor does not know what it is. Do you have any ideas???

Your condition could be what is known as "keratosis pylaris" but you would be best to see a dermatologist. The right dermatologist should be able to just take a quick glance at your condition and diagnosis you immediately.

Best of Luck to you.

Ruby, could it be lyme's disease? Bitten from a tick.
Just a thought.

ive had that before, it was all over my my shins, knees, feet and elbows, it wasnt really itchy. when i went to a dermatologist she told me it was some type of dermatitis (sorry about spelling) she gave me some cream to put on it , but i barely used the creamm and they went away on their own <IMG SRC="">
