This sounds like a skin condition related to dry skin.: Look up" hyperkeratosis pilaris" in Google and then switch to the images and see if the picture looks like you're rash. If it appears to be a match then you need to do quick bathing so as not to dry out the skin and use a lot of lotion. ...Read more

Red spot size of quarter upper thigh inch below ant bites couple of inches above where I do a shot for methotrexate every week!  Itches and hurts?
