No way to tell: without a more thorough description (how long, how did it happen, raised or flat, itchy or not, how long does it last, recurrent or one-time). The best solution would be to post a picture or two. Then you can have several people comment. Beat of luck!

Here's the skinny.: Several conditions come to mind. You're a little old for 5ths disease which usually occurs in children is a virus and can cause the lacey skin changes. Some individuals have this just with temperature changes especially in the cold. If you feel well with no fever and this is transient I wouldn't worry about it.
