It may be the change in seasons. A lot of new plants are blossoming right now, it might just take your skin a couple days to get used to the new allergens out there. You’re lucky it’s just once a year!

It could be a strange reaction to the spring allergens but I’m surprised it clears up so quickly.

I have no answer as to what causes it, but I had something like this earlier this year! It was crazy and scared the hell out of me.

I live in a cold/wet climate and was visiting my family for the holidays. It was much warmer and much drier there, I was also exposed to cigarette smoke routinely (which I am normally never around. It was the holidays so I ate a lot of food, so it might have been an allergy as well… haven’t eaten peanut brittle since :-/

I had just what you are describing, crazy red pimple like bumps all over my chest and back. They then spread to my arms and face. The ones on my chest and back cleared up in about a day, but it took a couple days to clear up my arms and about a week and a half for my face to clear up. I took benedryl at first, then switched to Clariton, and applied cortisone cream to stop the itching.

I still have no clue what it was, but I’m thinking it had to do with the climate change and maybe even the smoke exposure.

No fun, but be glad you only get it once per year. I can’t imagine dealing with it anymore than that!
