What Causes Red Bumps On The Body?

default
Posted on Sat, 15 Oct 2016
Question: Hello, I've been to a couple different doctors and they all seem stumped. For the last 3 weeks I have had red bumps over my body but mainly on my arms, and very deep dark purple circles around my eyes, my eyes are very burning and get red.

I have been on allergy medicine for a little more than 3 weeks now and it has not helped. I also have an allergy test appointment coming up. I am just trying to figure out if this is some kind of allergy problem, or a dermotology problem.

I have never had a history of allergies but I did move back up to school about a month ago.

I uploaded pictures of my eyes and bumps on my arms. The bumps are mostly on my arms but there are a couple all over my body. My eyes dark circles are getting worse, deeper and darker grey purple. The veins under my eyes seem to be showing a lot more, and hurt, my eyes also burn and become red.

Brief Answer:
Better to consult dermatologist also.

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for your follow up question on Healthcare Magic.
I can understand your concern.
I have gone through the images you have attached.
Possibility of allergic reaction is more likely in your case.
So get done allergy testing.
Also consult dermatologist for clinical examination of skin lesions.
You may need steroidal anti allergic cream and montelukast (anti allergic).
Hope I have solved your query.
