what are these red blotches on skin

My partner went hiking in Spain about a year and a half ago. She experienced some difficulties with her feet so it was a difficult hike with a fair amount of pain to complete the journey. She stayed in hostels along the way. She now has what looks like poison oak patches on her feet and arms that never seem to heal. [more inside]

The Travelling Programmer

I'd like to travel the world for a few years and work on some iOS app ideas at the same time, with the hope that if one of 'em makes enough money I can keep doing it forever! However, I reckon hostels probably aren't the most productive places in the world. Have any of you ever done something like this? What's the best approach for getting in the zone and being productive when you're on the go and surrounded by people? Are coffeehouse programmers as common in Europe as they are in the Silicon Valley? What about work-life balance -- is it possible to maintain a healthy hostel social life while also getting stuff done? Any advice would be much appreciated. Thank you!
