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.
Ever since then i've been seeing these tiny <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>red</span> 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> and <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>arms</span> 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.
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> and <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.
Soon there were light red bumps on my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>arms</span>. Before there was a few but it began to spread. I am starting to get some <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>on</span> my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>legs</span>. The are <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>on</span> the outer part of my arms. These bumps look like acne and a bug bite. They are clustered. Help! I don't know what to do!
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 and <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>on</span> my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>legs</span> and even <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>on</span> my neck and under chin too now and i've been to doctors and 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
I've had these small <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>red</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>bumps</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>on</span> forearms and lower <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>legs</span>, for a couple years now. They start out as a very small 'pimple type' that itch, and are kinda like a small whitehead or pimple, and I itch it, I try not to, then it leaves a mark that takes forever to heal up, and sometimes leaves a small scar. My arms/legs look as if I've taken needles to myself, WHICH IS NOT the case. It's sooooo embarrassing, people look at me like i'm sickly. I've tried all kinds of creams, and meds.
It most often appears <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>on</span> the back and outer sides of the upper <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>arms</span> and can also occur <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>on</span> the thighs and tops of <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>legs</span>, flanks and buttocks. Keratosis pilaris occurs as excess keratin, a natural protein in the skin, accumulates within the hair follicles forming hard plugs. Bearing only cosmetic consequence, the condition most often appears as a proliferation of tiny hard bumps that are seldom sore or itchy. Many KP bumps contain an ingrown hair that has coiled.
, 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!

I have <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>red</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>bumps</span>, sometimes little tiny white pustuales, mainly <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>on</span> 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.
I have these <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>red</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>bumps</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>on</span> the back of my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>legs</span>. I have had them for years. They do not itch, but there are a lot of them on the back of my thigh. Is there something I can do to make them go away. Any help will be appreciated.
For as long as I can remember I have had these <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>red</span> dots <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>on</span> my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>legs</span>. More so <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>on</span> my calfs than my thigh. It's the holes where the hair grows from. They are not risen and they don't itch. It doens't really look like a rash either. They are just really red. I have tried every kind of razor and shaving cream known to man and nothing helps.I have tried shaving really lightly and still nothing.
My boyfriend and I went to Rehoboth Beach, DE last weekend and he has an itchy rash <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>on</span> his waist, ankles and thighs. I have <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>red</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>bumps</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>on</span> my ankles and knees. Some of my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>bumps</span> are raised and seem to be filled with liquid. He went to the doctor but could not get a diagonosis because doctor sen't sure what it was and prescribed a cortizone cream and antihistimine. Mine seem to be going away. We are thinking his could be scabies and are afraid to sleep together as it could be contagious.
They have turned into small <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>red</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>bumps</span> and they itch almost constantly. The rash is <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>on</span> my forearms, a little <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>on</span> 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.
Could be because I finished off the shower by letting cold water pour down <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>on</span> my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>legs</span>. I can tell you for sure it's not a rash because there is no bumps, only the skin color changes and goes back to normal after a while. What could this be? Stress, NERVE Damage? Is this related to STDs or HIV at all? I need some reassurance.
About 10 years ago, after taking a shower, I received a terrible itch <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>on</span> my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>legs</span>. I have had this itching ever since. At some point it apperared also <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>on</span> my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>arms</span> in the area over the elbow. Most of the time the itching starts after I take a shower, but not always. Very often when i get up in the night and then go back in bed the itching starts. Some times it starts while I am sleeping. It is triggered also by rubbing, rough materials, pressing, etc. I do not shave any more.
Hi, It would be very difficult to say anything without having a look at the lesions. Is he on any medications currently? This could be due to an allergic reaction to some unknown substance or secondary to insect bite or sweat dermatitis etc. But nothing can be said with surety without a clinical examination. You should wash the areas and keep them clean, apply calamine lotion at the site for his symptoms.
I have this tiny <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>red</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>bumps</span> with water in the center of it <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>on</span> my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>arms</span> and <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>legs</span> and they itch....first it'll be just a red bump then soon it'll have a water in the middle of it but tiny and i wonder if it could be bedbugs bite or some other allergies?
