What causes an itchy rash with little bumps on top of my feet and redness on lower legs? Also bumps are not itching anymore, now they are dry bumps.

Allergic reaction: Usually rashes on the top of your feet are casued by some type of allergic reaction or contact dermatits.

Your socks or shoes could be creating the rash on your feet more so if they got wet while wearing them or if you have changed soaps or detergents. If the rash persists or returns get examined by a doctor. ...Read more

I've been getting raised bumps sporatically over different areas of my body. The bumps are itchy but only red if I scratch. What is the cause?

Hives/:Urticaria: This is due to histamine release from cells in the skin. They only do it when a signal goes to these cells from the lower brain that is a computer. By far the commonest cause is a "junk" diet, particularly sugary stuff.
