Skin rashes: Skin rashes need to be seen to get proper diagnosis and treatment. Based on your brief descriptions, raised bumps on your skin sound like urticaria or hives. If you have it recently, you can try otc antihistamine. Several etiologies may cause acute hives but otc is suffice. If it last longer than 6 weeks, or you have associated shortness of breath/ abdominal pain, you should come see an allergist.
