Hi all! Thanks for reading, and any help is appreciated...
Around 4 months ago my skin suddenly started acting really weird. I would periodically get itchy all over, and then develop pink bumps on my face, chest and back. Almost like little pimples, but with NO head. They occur in little clusters mostly on my forehead. It's strange, because it comes on so suddenly--yet can disappear for weeks. Recently I visited a beach and it got 100000x worse, but as soon as I returned back to my hometown, my bumps subsided. Could be something in the atmosphere? Especially since it all began during the spring months (I live in New England).
I also have a guess it might be something in bread/caffeine, because those two things seem to be consumed around the times I break out. But I could be wrong here. (Is there a test you can do to see if you're allergic to caffeine, because I know my stomach has ALWAYS churned when I consumed caffeine/coffee)
2 of the dermatologists I saw brushed it off as mild acne...one however was intrigued and admitted he had no idea what I was suffering from.
I included a pic. Any help is appreciated; I don't want to treat it like pimples if they actually aren't!
