Neuropathy: Sounds like a nerve problem, so we'd call it neuropathy. It can be caused by anything damaging a nerve. Shingles or herpes can do this, but if it has been going on for 2 weeks I'd expect there to be spots or bumps or something showing on the skin by now. It can also be caused by your immune system attacking the nerve or by the nerve being pinched in your spine or elsewhere. See your doc for help. ...Read more

Red bumps: If the red bumps clear within a day, they may be hives caused by an allergic reaction to something internal(example=food) or external by something coming in contact with your body. If the bumps persist for a few days,insect bites could be the culprit. Taking antihistamine like benadryl(causes drowsiness) or claritin(nondrowsy) helps. See a dermatologist or allergist as needed. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

If blisters develop, I'd see a doc ASAP for antiviral ...Read more
