What Causes Raised Itchy Red Bumps On The Calves?

Hi. I am a 49 yr old caucasian woman. Out of nowhere last night my calf felt itchy. This morning I woke up to both calves having a rash, raised bumpy red spots. Itchy, but not too bad. 12 hours later I notice now that a smaller area on my lower arm has the same rash. But only those 3 spots. I am taking muscle relaxers and percocet for having cervical fusion C3-7 11/30/17. But I have not seen anything like this before on me. Luckily I am going to my PCP tomorrow. Any ideas????
