I have very small bump like rash on backs of thighs from knee up. Legs from knee down almost dandruff like. High static electricity inside my home. Absolutely no burrowing into skin. General skin discomfort. Rhinitis. An unusual amount of lint on all my clothes and I use softener. My neighbors all have dogs. My home is next door to construction sites. One is a new structure on grassy lot. The other is a tear down old new build in strip mall. Mold, mildew and black tree sap substance between screen and window.
