Common Questions and Answers about Bumps on skin that look like goosebumps

bumps

This doesn't happen often but sometimes I get what seem like head to toe goosebumps! I'm not cold or anything like that. It's like they come and go so fast. I've also had spots about the size of a half dollar just goosebumps and go away and come back and go away. It's not pins and needles although I do get that, this is actual goosebumps.
Are the bumps itchy or seem like the skin is really dried out where the bumps are? My son has bumps that the kids at school refer to as permanent goosebumps too, but I took him to the doctor and he has exema (sp?) They gave him a prescription lotion creme stuff that he has to use. He also uses an over the counter lotion called Aveena that seems to work pretty well. HOpe this helps.
Hi, This seems to be a condition called Keratosis pilaris. It is manifested by the appearance of rough bumps on the skin. It most often appears on the back and outer sides of the upper arms (though the lower arms can also be affected), and can also occur on the thighs and tops of legs, flanks, buttocks. It occurs as excess keratin, a natural protein in the skin, accumulates within the hair follicles forming hard plugs.
small circle of what look like goose bumps that don't go away on my thighs. Any ideas of what it could be and how to get rid of them?
I looked for info on tingling with localized goosebumps, knowing that goosebumps are a result of activity of the autonomic nervous system. Curious...do you also have localized sweating? Anyway, the only association I found (and I am not diagnosing it) is with partial seizures. They used to be called temporal lobe seizures. This is a type of seizure that lasts only seconds and can have very unusual manifestations. But that's about all I can say.
I've searched all over the web and I did see one picture of an allergic reaction on the lips that sort of look like what my lips looked like, but it was only one example.
I could be sitting at my computer working away when all of a sudden part of my body gets chill bumps. It feels like it's caused by something going on inside me rather than external factors such as temperature. I know it sounds crazy, but then again, everything I've been going through these past 6 months is crazy.
However, mine doesn't look like all of the pictures- the pilaris bumps in the pics look red, but mine are white. My skin is completely smooth, but it looks like I have permanent goosebumps because the spots are lighter than my skin. In the attached picture, my leg is completely smooth but it looks as if I have raised goosebumps. The spots are always there. Does anybody know if it is keratosis pilaris or something else?
and bumps on my arms and chest that look like little raised hair follicles or goosebumps.
However, based on the description you provided, it sounds like these bumps are most likely benign with respect to their chronicity (how long they have been present), and the fact that the bumps have not been painful, and the skin over the bumps has not been ulcerated (the skin has not broken down) or inflamed. Of course, a specialist examining you would look for these signs amongst others.
I have raised red bumps all over my arms (mainly upper arms)and all over my legs. (They look like goosebumps but are there constantly). My doctor says that they are harmless and recommended an E45 cream for them. That was a year ago and they are still there. I am getting married next year and would love to get rid of them. I also have a very mild form of dry excema if that is relevant. Thanks for your time.
Like I said, the bumps look exactly like goosebumps, so they aren't red or anything. They're skin colored. Also, I recently got sun burnt and they became super itchy. If anyone has any idea of what this could possibly be, please let me know!
I've noticed on my skin that I have some bumps which are very much like goosebumps. My house is well heated and I currently don't have any issues with my life that cause fear but I would like to know why these "goosebumps" wont go away. When I look at my arms, my hair is standing up rather than just laying down on my skin. I find these "goosebumps" mostly in the underside of my arms and on the sides of my thighs. Thank you very much.
i used to have a rash in the crevice on both sides of my nostrils and in my groin area when i was younger but i havent had a problem with that for a long time, but i do still have a problem with moderately itchy bumps that form on my scalp, usually in the very back of the scalp and sometimes they have a pus and sometimes they dont. those come and go. sorry for the nauseating description but any suggestions with that would also be helpful. thanks!!!
look up fordyces spots. and see if they look like that. i have the same exact thing, where they kinda look like goosebumps? i was terrified too, and also i am not sexually active. so i completely understand your confusion. those bumps is actually the reason i signed up for this site.
It could possibly be that re-using towels fungus (tinea versicolor) but they don't look too much like the pictures on google. They're more dry/ashy looking.
Think of goosebumps. just like that. Skin color and tiny like pinhead. I put soap on it today. And it burned for a second or 2. But that was soap on a dry area, I didn't even get in the shower and put soap on it.
On my wrists and the back of my hands, it is the bumps that appear red but my palms have a general pinkish tint to them. The bumps almost look like goosebumps. I bought hydrocortisone cream and have applied it once so I'm not sure if it will work but does anyone have any idea that this could be? I'm also experiencing a scratchy throat and slight sinus pressure. I'm not sure if this could have anything to do with that.
It doesn't look bad, but when I scratch at at, it looks like flesh colored goosebumps, some larger than others. It's driving me crazy! Any idea what it is? Cortizone doesn't seem to help much. Calamine does a little bit. My stomach rash is subsiding, but my legs are just as bad. Help!
It looks like a penis with two camel humps (not nearly as big of course). Other than those humps, the goosebumps looking bumps itch and it seems like their spreading. They're spreading to my skin, which again I've never seen before, and they look like hair folliculitis. There's not many of them but a few. I need help, they itch, sometimes pinch (not hard to hurt), and its abnormal.
Keratosis pilaris is a common genetic follicular condition that is manifested by the appearance of rough bumps on the skin like goose bumps. 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.
the back of my neck has nothing. they are really tiny, and look like perennial goosebumps that itch, making my skin feel really rough. it kind of looks like the pictures of rosacea i've googled, except that 1) i'm asian and fairly dark skinned (about olive-y colour) 2) the bumps are not accompanied by flushed skin, except a faint blush on my cheeks that's a little redder than usual but not very ostentatiously red. it only turns redder if i scratch it.
The small bumps themselves aren't weirdly colored or anything...in fact they kind of look like abnormal goosebumps (when I say abnormal I mean that the bump sizes aren't consistent..some smaller and some larger...but never bigger than say 3/16 inches..which is still pretty small). If I don't irritate the area for a day, the bumps eventually go down (sometimes still a little visible) and the pinkish hue fades away. That's basically the jist of my symptoms.
You can't even really feel them on my face, but when you look at my face in the sunlight, they look like tiny tiny goosebumps on my face. It does not irritate me. The are more prominent on the sides of my face and on my cheeks. Please help me! My mother suggested that it could be something I was born with, because I had something that looked similar to this when I was born.
Hello - a few days ago, I happened to notice a scattering of small pink/red bumps on the top of my right breast. They look like little sweat bumps, I guess. There are actually a few on my left breast, too, but just a few. For some reason I decided to google it and lots of results about inflammatory breast cancer came back, which kind of freaked me out. Does this sound like IBC, or the beginning of it?
I do a routine twice a month - once a month shave of my pubic region, including the base of my shaft due to unsightly hairs. I have these - what look like goosebumps, around the base of my shaft - including one extremely small and dismall...white head? very very small. I don't really want to pop it because I don't want anything to spread. Is this just razor burn? It doesn't ever really go away....doesn't ever really get any worse....doesn't itch, doesn't bother me at all.
just seemed like skin all the way down. It was very painful when he did that and when I get them, they sometimes itch, but not always. I'm 27 now and for 15 years or so I've almost always had one of these little patches somewhere. What are they, what causes them, and what can I do about them?
I started to develop little bumps on my arms and chest that look like goosebumps and my skin in general now is very sensitive to any touch or irritation and I also have a burning sensation. My armpits also have a similar discomfort/burning sensation. And when my skin does itch, it itches excessively. Do and of you guys know what this could be related to? My main concern is that is could be HIV, although i have not had any other symptoms. Thanks for the help...
It's called keratosis pilaris, and it's often called 'chicken skin' because the bumps are always raised and look like goosebumps. Although it's unflattering, it should become less apparent as you age, although this isn't true in all cases. There is no cure for it, it's a heriditary thing, so you can pass it on to your kids (the girls will NOT appreciate it) and it's really just a superficial thing. Here's some more info, if you would like it.
Now it's all over my body. It doesn't itch. My skin is red like a mild sunburn, and the bumps look like red goosebumps. No fluid in them. They are not blister like. I saw my doctor yesterday and he didn't seem to know what was causing it. He told me to take benadryl and use hyrocortisone cream. Nothing has helped. This morning my throat hurt a little, but is better now after drinking hot chicken broth. I don't feel sick at all. I don't have a fever, but my skin is hot where the bumps are.
