Q
Itchy skin

Sometimes I feel itchy in my hand or on leg or some other part. When I look at it was a small red swollen round(sometime .5cm diameter t0 2cm) What is this problem? Today when I was bathing I see a red round area in my upper part of left knee which was not itchy but its diameter was 3cm and it wad little elevated also I am worried about this.  Can you please tell me about this problem or which disease it is?

This sounds like hives or urticaria. This is a rash that moves around on the skin, is usually itchy, red and slightly raised. There are many causes including food allergies, certain medications and auto-immune problems such as Lupus and Thyroid problems. You may need to see a Dermatologist to do a skin biopsy if it persists with bruising.
