See internist: Skin is usually not painful on its own, rather secondary to an underlying cause. You should be evaluated by your primary care physician.

Joint Pain: Yes, i agree polyarthritis is arthritis in multiple joint which is often associated with a rheumatologic disorder (rheumatoid arthritis, lupus...). Migratory arthritis, where your pain jumps from one joint to another, brings up the possibility of lyme's disease and other conditions. Definitely talk to your pcp.
