Hello,

My mom has red circles the size of a quarter on her back and arms that are itching. This is the second time this is happening. The doctor said it was due to stress and "allergies from dirty air". What are these?

Hi!welcome to forum. Yes the lesions seems like urticarial rashes , which is hypersensitive reaction to different allergens. These particular rashes seems like hypersensitive reaction to insect bites which could be possibly bedbugs or other mites etc. Thus trying to avoid the environment may be helpful.
