Why does my skin gets lumpy and swollen when scratched?

If I get a scratch on my arm, it would leave a swollen lump there for a couple mins. It gets itchy too. My skin wasn’t like this before. I haven’t been out of the house for 2 years after my mom passed away. Now I’m very sensitive to the sun. Could staying inside the house too much turned my skin like this?

    It's histamine, scratching attracts histamine.  You also probly have low levels of vitamin D.
