Could These Red Bumps Be Related to my Ankylosing Spondylitis?

I recently broke out with red bumps on my hands and arms. It started last summer. At first I thought maybe it was something in my garden, but by the time the dermatologist got me in, it was mostly gone.

She gave me a topical. I would get red hands but no major bumps until a few weeks ago. It was so bad at the time. I had my rheumatology appointment, and she called right away to get me in to my dermatologist.

Could it be related to my ankylosing spondylitis?

He took two biopsies, and as of now they think it's related to my autoimmune condition. It went away mostly on its own, then two weeks later came back the worst ever with a few spots on my legs.

It's very uncomfortable...it does not itch a lot, just uncomfortable. I don't know what to do. I can't get any answers. Does anyone know what could be going on?
