I was diagnosed with LD 4 weeks ago and now on my 2nd set of antibiotics. However I've been on prednisone since May16 for some type of itchy rash. Now since I have LD I have a rash on my elbows and knees and left arm that almost will not let me sleep. The itch is unbelievable especially if I get the least bit warm.I also have it on my back, butt etc. But my elbows and upper arm and knees drive me nuts. If I scratch the arm it does form bumps like you described..but no blisters. I am on another 6 days on prednisone for the itch. I have tried all types of creams. In the past I have used Olux for itches but it didn't help this.
Good luck.
