Rash on Hand Joints, Elbows, and Knees

I would like to share my skin rash story on this website. I started out with a skin rash around only on the tips of my fingernails. This is a little weird but it is where I first noticed it. This would occur when I would do my nails when I was younger, even though I had been getting acrylic nails for four years. So, because of the appearance of the rash I stopped doing my nails.

Then, starting this year, a rash started to appear on my knuckles of my hands and also on both of my elbows. If I have to describe the rash, it is best categorized as one that produces small pustules. One doctor that I saw misdiagnosed my rash as a scabies skin problem. This diagnosis freaked me out completely and I had to miss a lot of time from work because of the misdiagnosis. I then went to another doctor to get a second opinion and he said it was possibly a skin condition called folliculitis or he also thought it could possibly be a staph infection. Luckily, the rash went away with some antibiotics treatment, and just as a precaution (because I work in the medical field and had to get rid of it fast) with permethrin in case it was indeed a scabies issue, which fortunately it was not.

Now, for two days straight, after I get out of the bath, I have the skin rash appearing on my hip joints and on my posterior portion of my body. In fact, this morning I unfortunately woke up with the rash also present on my legs, or more specifically on both of my knees. The rash is like whelps and it is VERY hot. What the heck is going on now with my skin? Can someone please help me and shed some light on this skin rash on my hand joints, elbows, and knees.
