About two weeks ago - after I moved to a new place - my skin seemingly reacted to something I am yet to determine, eventually causing my entire body to become covered in pale-red dots with a texture similar to "goose bumps". During the past week it was gradually going away. I suspected an allergic reaction, and hence stopped subjecting myself to new food / detergents I started using.
A new symptom emerged, though, which is a sharp needles-like pain on the surface of my skin occurring on many parts of my body simultaneously. It doesn't last long, but is distracting due to its intensity.
Whenever I get nervous/anxious and/or sweat from physical activity, the described pain sets in. It has been like this for the entire week, basically.
I am a 19 year old male, have no significant medical history, am in a good shape, and every medical test came back negative in the past.
What could be the cause?
Thanks a lot in advance,
