Causes Of Red And Itchy Bumps On The Legs?
Hello, I want to ask you 2x a year there are 2x I itches on the legs and red bumps. Initially 1 cm but it spreads out there could be 3 or 4, mostly in the legs, sometimes on the hands too but only 1, on the thighs there are also 3 red bumps, why is this? What are hives? I itch like this every 6 months, the bumps are quite long there a week, maybe it doesn’t itch again but it turns black, it’s 6 months like this again when I lived in my house, I didn’t use it in my boarding house, what effect is the AC too? I am confused why the bumps are mostly on the legs
