Thanks for asking on Health care magic.

I need to ask you for how long has this been going on? Also, could you upload an image of the cherry red discoloration on your arms, face and chest? You could be suffering from a viral infection but I will have to wait for your response to be able to guide you further.

I will do my best to take a picture of it this afternoon when it happens again. I can tell you that it looks like a very bad, non blistered sunburn.
