Bumps on arms and legs

Common Questions and Answers about Bumps on arms and legs


Avatar n tn For about 6 years I have had constant <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>bumps</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>on</span> my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>arms</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>legs</span>. 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.
Avatar f tn 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 <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>on</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>legs</span> but I get these sort or irregular <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>bumps</span> in no particular pattern <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>on</span> my lower <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>legs</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> 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
Avatar n tn 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.
Avatar n tn Hello, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>bumps</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>on</span> the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>arms</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>legs</span> 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.
Avatar f tn For three months now i have noticed hards <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>bumps</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>on</span> my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>arms</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>legs</span> 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.
Avatar n tn Occasionally I get <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>bumps</span>/blisters <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>on</span> my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>arms</span> or <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>legs</span>. 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.
Avatar m tn Ever since then i've been seeing these tiny red non itchy <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>bumps</span> form <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>on</span> my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>legs</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>arms</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> 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.
Avatar n tn i have some little red, raised <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>bumps</span> that have appeared <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>on</span> my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>arms</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> lower <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>legs</span>(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.
Avatar n tn well i have white bumps on the high part of my arm that are spreading lower and lower even <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>on</span> my chest <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>on</span> my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>legs</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> even <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>on</span> my neck <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> under chin too now <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> i've been to doctors <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> they said it was keratin thats not escaping from under the skin and they gave me some cream to treat it after about 2 or 3 days of using it i broke out in hives and a rash so i stopped using it and am very confused why its spreading and if you try to pop them white stuff could( be keratin) that looks like wh
Avatar f tn Hello for about amonth now i have had these red <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>bumps</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>on</span> my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>legs</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>arms</span> belly <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> back they do itch but di nothing more than that i have no other symtoms.

My arm a day or two before started itching but no bump it just itched in this concentrated area and this morning there was a bump there.i dont know what to do as it is not causing me any problems other than itch and frustrasion.
Avatar m tn It's like when you press hard <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>on</span> your skin <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> take it off <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> 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.
Avatar f tn Hi, I'm 24 years old and for the past two weeks I've been itching like CRAZY only on my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>legs</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>arms</span>. it started <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>on</span> my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>arms</span>, 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.
Avatar n tn The itching is only <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>on</span> my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>arms</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>legs</span>, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> it comes in waves. Sometimes I can't stand it <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> i scratch until I bleed and other times I don't really notice the itch. Do you have any advice? If you do could you please e-mail me at ***@**** ? I need any suggestion. Thank you.
Avatar n tn Recently I have developed this intense rash <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>on</span> my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>arms</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>legs</span>. 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.
Avatar m tn Within a day or so started getting really itchy <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>bumps</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>on</span> the side of my elbow, back of <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>arms</span>, forearms <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> 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...
Avatar n tn Hello, For such itchy <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>arms</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>legs</span>, neurodermatitis <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> 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.
Avatar n tn After hanging out at my boyfriends house and some heated make out sessions, I noticed I get these little <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>bumps</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>on</span> the back of my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>arms</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> all over my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>legs</span>. They look a lot like razor <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>bumps</span> (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?
Avatar f tn , so Lupus was ruled out. My family doctor did a chest xray that was normal. The <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>bumps</span> are <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>on</span> my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>legs</span>, upper <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>arms</span>, elbows, upper legs, buttocks, and here and there other places. Neither doctor has been able to help me. It's driving me nuts!
Avatar n tn I have had itchy red <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>bumps</span> that aren't that big <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>on</span> my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>legs</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> 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?
Avatar n tn I have red bumps, sometimes little tiny white pustuales, mainly on the backs of my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>arms</span> between my elbow <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> shoulder <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> the same thing <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>on</span> my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>legs</span> 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.
