Common Questions and Answers about Bumps on arms and legs

bumps

For about 6 years I have had constant bumps on my arms and legs. Some are ingrown hairs, others are more like pimples or clogged pores. A few areas are worse than others, but all are fairly bad. I have tried exfoliating and moisturizing regularly (I use Aveeno typically), but nothing seems to work. I do have mildly dry skin, but as I said, I moisturize fairly regularly and strangely do not have any significant problems with acne on my face.
I seem to get a rash which occurs only in the morning last for at least 30 to 40 minutes then goes down when it goes down its interesting because I have white rings on the legs not that prominant on legs but I get these sort or irregular bumps in no particular pattern on my lower legs and thighs dotted around they seem to be under the skin and the only thing I have had over a while is thrush that didn't seem to go away because I was treated with about 8 courses of antibiotics if anyone could s
I have just recently begun to develop some sort of acne or rash, and I am having trouble finding what exactly it is I have. I have done research but come to no solid solution, and cannot afford to see a dermatologist for an in-person diagnosis.
Hello, Bumps on the arms and legs are due to keratosis pilaris. Keratosis pilaris occurs when the human body produces excess keratin, a natural protein in the skin. There is currently no known cure for keratosis pilaris, however, there are effective treatments available which make its symptoms less apparent. Treatment includes tretinoin or Triamcinolone cream or Adapalene, a retinoid medication.
For three months now i have noticed hards bumps on my arms and legs where my skin is exposed daily. That s to say, they are only located on my lower thighs and and the up side of my arms. The bumps don't itch and look similar to bug bites. Some of them are red, but most are just under the first level of my skin. I have also tried squeezing them, but nothing comes out and it almost feels as if my skin has been hardened and condensed.
Occasionally I get bumps/blisters on my arms or legs. This started about two years ago on my legs. I went to the doctor and they did a skin biopsy and the results were inconclusive so they attribited it to insect bites. Now I get these breakouts on my arms and it seems that everytime I'm around certain people I have a breakout. My boyfriend lives in another state but whenever I see him and his daughter I breakout afterwards.
Hi, I am not quite sure if this is a derm problem but my mom has thes clumps of stuff in her arms and legs like when I massage her I could feel bumps in her arms and legs. Could they be cellulite? Or fat? Is it normal? Thanks! I appreciate your answers!!
Ever since then i've been seeing these tiny red non itchy bumps form on my legs and arms and armpit most of them are not itchy except for the armpit one. I thought it was a flea attack but the bites are not itchy and the dog did not show any of the trademark itching and biting signs of fleas. His hair did shed but that could've been related to the fact that we were using dog shampoo that may not have gotten along with him.
i have some little red, raised bumps that have appeared on my arms and lower legs(calves). they itch horribly. they first appeared on the back side above my elbow and spread to my arms the first day and onto my legs the second. i went fishing the day before(exactly 24 hrs) these appeared. they seem to only be where my arms and legs where exposed that day. also i have been under a tremendous amount of stress, could either one of these have caused this.

It's like when you press hard on your skin and take it off and it becomes red type of redness. lol sorry but that's the only way I could put it. I'm going to see someone on Wednesday and will let you know then.
Hi, I'm 24 years old and for the past two weeks I've been itching like CRAZY only on my legs and arms. it started on my arms, I've not changed any soaps, I don't use fabric softener, I've washed everything I own just in case of allergic reaction, When I scratch these white rash-like bumps show up all over my arms andlegs, it's worse at night to the point where I can't sleep. I've gone through tubes and tubes of savlon which helps to ease the pain and itchyness for about twenty minutes or so.

Recently I have developed this intense rash on my arms and legs. They have turned into small red bumps and they itch almost constantly. The rash is on my forearms, a little on my upper arms, on my shins, thighs, and it seems to be spreading to my cheek bones, and get this ear lobes! It has been going on for about a week and a half now. I have no idea what this could be from.
Within a day or so started getting really itchy bumps on the side of my elbow, back of arms, forearms and inside bicep and somewhat minor irritation under armpits and down rib cage (not so bad along rib cage) I thought it was a heat rash or something so i kinda just let it go for a few days ( scratching of course took place).. as the days went by it seemed to get worse and more red spots and itchiness...
They aren't any color, they itch sometimes. They are group of them some on my arms and on my legs. I honestly don't know what it is. Any help?
Hello, For such itchy arms and legs, neurodermatitis and brachioradial pruritis (BRP) need to be ruled out. The main cause of BRP is not known but there is evidence to suggest that BRP may arise in the nervous system. BRP may be attributed to a neuropathy, such as chronic cervical radiculopathy. No cure has been found. The only thing that seems to help most sufferers is the application of ice to the area until the itch is diminished.
After hanging out at my boyfriends house and some heated make out sessions, I noticed I get these little bumps on the back of my arms and all over my legs. They look a lot like razor bumps (no I haven't shaved recently). Intercourse has ever taken place. It has only happened the past two nights. They die down the next day. I have never seen these bumps before. Is this an allergic reaction or something different?
, so Lupus was ruled out. My family doctor did a chest xray that was normal. The bumps are on my legs, upper arms, elbows, upper legs, buttocks, and here and there other places. Neither doctor has been able to help me. It's driving me nuts!
I have had itchy red bumps that aren't that big on my legs and are severly itchy. They turn into scabs after awhile but itch like crazy. I also have smaller itchy red bumps on my arms. What is it?
I have red bumps, sometimes little tiny white pustuales, mainly on the backs of my arms between my elbow and shoulder and the same thing on my legs from my knee to ankle. I have noticed a few people have redness or irritation in these areas as well, mine seems to vary on how bad it is. The skin doesn't appear overly dry, so I am not sure if I should be moisturizing or what.
