To be honest, none of us here are doctors or are qualfied to diagnose you. We can and will only tell you that it "could/might be or sounds like _________", but we can't honestly tell you what the bumps or the rash is.
I am always of the mind that ANY symptom is a way for the body to cleanse itself or it could be a reaction to signal that something is not right within. But we are not really in a position to say what it could be or could be from - we'll only be speculating. So, my suggestion is for you to perhaps go and see a doctor or dermatologist IF you are that concerned about what is happening and you're not ready to trust fully in your body's mechanisms and/or evaluate what you're eating and/or accept that when we make changes to our diet that we will experience detox and cleansing signs that may manifest in the form of what we have been taught to think of as illness (cold and flu symptoms, etc.) or skin outbreaks.
Having said that, many people experience skin eruptions as a form of (dare I say it) detox or cleansing. It could be that or it could be something else. But again, we're not medical professionals and even if we were, it'd be difficult to diagnose anything without seeing it, knowing more about your eating habits, history of eating, and other factors.

I am not asking for a diagnosis..I am just trying to relate to others if they have experienced the same symptons for an extended period of time (2 weeks)

Sorry if I misunderstood...when you said, "is this detox or what", to me that sounded like you were asking for someone to diagnose what it is. I think you also missed the whole point of my post - beyond the "we are not qualified to diagnose you" statement I made, I also mentioned some thoughts on skin abruptions and that yes, many people DO end up with weird rashes, bumps, etc. on the skin - but again, without knowing anything about you, your diet, etc. then how can anyone say whether it's detox or something else?
But I digress...hopefully you find some answers or even moreso, relief from it soon!
