Hi im new, well to start off before signing up to the message board i looked online for some explanations but found none.

My condition is as follows every once in a while i get like 1 red bump 2 or 3 usually on my forearm or bicep. They don't itch unless i start to scratch them and even then its not that bad. Now this has been happening for a few months now but stopped for some time at first i thought it was bed bugs i checked everything even used special products that kill them off just in case. Everything seemed normal for a few weeks till again 1 or 2 popped up, eventually they stopped coming up and i thought guess thats it.

the thing is i have a concern i have noticed the past couple of times they popped up was after i smoked a little marijuana(idk if i am allowed to post this or not but i think it may be because of that). I looked online thinking i maybe allergic to it but the symptoms i read about are far different from these 2 red bumps that itch only if i scratch them. i have red people allergic break out in a rash like form but thats not what i have it doesn't resemble a rash at all it looks like a mosquito bit only a bit bigger.

Idk if its from the marijuan or not been smoking for a while it never happened to me until recently so it may just be a coincidence since i never had this in the summer or or anything and it doesn't always accurr.. ok im rambling now lol.

Anyways does anyone know what this might be or maybe experienced this ever...

This does sound like an allergic reaction to me. Hives can show up in many different ways. Next time you get the rash, try taking some Benadryl - see if that helps.

its not a rash though at least it doesn't look like 1...its either 2 or 3 bumps some times even 1 and they're are separated from each like i said looks like mosquito bite..

edit: would it help if i put up a pic?

Sounds like some type of eczema or hives. If a cortisone cream or benandryl from the drug store doesnt work, probably best to see a doctor who can tell you, #1 what it is, #2 give you an Rx. You dont wanna mess around with your skin and take the chances of it spreading or scarring.

Highly unlikely the weed is causing that but come on, you're killing your brain cells!!
