hi welcome to HCM
-i had gone through your query and understand your concerns. i would come up with two possibilities

1.the first one may be,RHEUMATOID ARTHRITIS; blood test for increased RA factor,CRP,ASO trite,and ESR may confirm the diagnosis

2.the second possibility include;URTICARIA may b the cause.

allergy is the underlying cause for its development.

I hope this is helpful for you, thank you
