Post unknown rash???

I am writing on behalf of my mother...

She has a rash on her back, stomach, and spreading to her legs. The rash isn't present on ther arms, legs, or face. She has bumps that sorta look like swollen bites... or maybe small welts (can you understand my description?). These bumps do not itch, however one or two of them are starting to peel, as in the skin on top of them is peeling off. But nothing is coming out. I don't think this is caused by dry skin... it looks too weird.

Benadryl (sp?) doesn't help the rash at all, which makes me think it might not be an allergic reaction.

Any ideas?? I'm worried and she won't go to the doctor.

Has she been seen by a Dr? It could be psorisis.
