Skin Problems board


Anyone with any information please help me.
Since 2003 I have approximately every 2 to 3 months have had a problem with my skin. I am usually woken up about 2 or 3 in the morning with a burning sensation of my extremities. When I finally arise at 5 am and get into the shower where ever I have felt the burning sensation I will have a quarter size red raised bump. It is sensative to touch and within 24 hours it looks like it is a burn I guess it is rough on top of skin and still raised. I have been to the dr several times and have had 2 biopsy's which have shown nothing. I have been to 2 different dermatologist with the same results. I have also had a battery of blood tests to rule out I guess Lupus. I have been told that as soon as one comes up to rush up to there office so they can biopsy it again. This started on my right leg. Then moved to my right arm on the underside of the arm first then on top. They last about 3 to 4 days. Occasionally I will get another one the following week. I have tried several topical cremes without much success. I have most recently started putting silvadene creme on them and covering with band aid because they are painful to touch. And being on my underside of arms they are always being used.
I have about had it with the drs not being able to figure out what great mystery this is. HAS ANYONE ELSE OUT THERE HAD THIS KIND OF SYMPTOMS??? Please help me if you can.

Thank you!
