I have a rash that comes and goes, they look like scratches and mosquito bites. They don't hurt but are itchy. They disappear and then ease away.

In brief: Urticaria

This rash you describe sounds like something called urticaria (hives).
Urticaria is caused by histamine release. It can be due to a number of conditions including allergic reactions. Sometimes we don't find a cause for this and it is called idiopathic urticaria, Check with you primary doc and discuss the symptoms further. It is can be treated with antihistamines.
