Really weird 'health' problem - can anyone on here help please??
For the last few weeks, every now and again (perhaps once or twice a day) my hands become really red and itchy for no apparent reason. To the point where I can't concentrate as it's so sore.
I don't have sensitive skin at all, I don't have eczema, haven't changed cosmetics, perfumes, soap powder etc...
There doesn't seem to be any trigger. For example it's happening now and I have been sitting at my desk at work all morning doing absolutely nothing different to what I've been doing for the past 8 years in work!!
(This may or may not be related, but twice in the last 2 weeks I've also developed itchy red lumps on my legs, particularly around my knees and ankles, and then within an hour or so they fade and everything is back to normal...??)
Am I cracking up? I know this sounds weird so any suggestions you have at all would be greatly appreciated, as I don't want to visit the GP and risk sounding like a complete nutter!! Any ideas?
