Bumps on arms red

Common Questions and Answers about Bumps on arms red


Avatar n tn i read the forum on the red bumps on upper arms and I have the same issue. When i was visiting a doctor a few years back for a few shots before i left the country he asked if I had always had them I said yes cause I cant remember a time when I didnt. He told me that a vitamin would help make them go away, he said it was a vitamin they you get in the sun, as the sun apparently gives us this vitamin, therefore when it was said that they get better int he summer it made sense.
Avatar f tn My son (13) has a lot of little red bumps on his upper arm. The rash is also on his chest and face, not red, but feels like sand paper. We were told it is "Dariar's (sp?) Disease", a hereditary conditon, with flare-ups more dominant during warm weather. Where can I find more information on this? Keratosis Pilaris, and what my son has, appear to be exactly the same, except for the time of the year the outbreak is supposed to occur. Your input and help will be greatly appreciated.
Avatar n tn i recently developed these itchy red bumps on my arms and its been going on for a week. I want to know what it could possibly be and if its contageous and I seem to be getting them on my face as well but the ones on my face do not itch. what could this be? could it be something serious that I should be concerned about?
962004 tn?1247090309 I developed dozens of red bumps on my upper arms this winter. I am 33 years old and they just appeared 6 months ago. I remember my mother had the same thing. In the spring, some of them turned into whiteheads and it was very embarrassing. Now that I have been out in the sun a little, they have gotten smaller and none are whiteheads. My internist said it's keratosis pilaris and the prescribed Ammonium Lactate 12% to be applied twice daily. I looked it up and see that it is a moisturizer.
Avatar f tn I've had red bumps on the sides of my arms and forehead since i was little. I used products for acne on my forehead and they did clear up. But nothing has worked on my arms and i've tried many things. I don't know if it's a rash caused by something i'm allergic to or maybe from the sun. Is there some kind of ointment or creme to use to clear it up??
Avatar m tn I've had those little red bumps on my arms for as long as I can remember, and I'm in my 30's now. I've tried lots of stuff, but nothing has worked. I started taking Plexus Slim in May 2013. 4 months later my arms are 99% better. I'm not a doctor and can't say it's that for sure. All I know is I've never found anything else to work. So, what do you think? Anyone else have experience with this?
Avatar f tn I have had little red bumps on my arms for over a year, the dr gave me some med for the scalp and told me to put it one every night. I did this 10 times or more and it never worked. They get better and I think It's gone, but it's back now worse than ever.
Avatar n tn My arms are breaking out. half dollar sized red patches on the top and bottom of right arm, between wrists and elbow. then yesterday, left arm, on the side? same red patches but have small kinda red kinda white bumps??
Avatar m tn 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...
Avatar n tn I'm becoming more concious of them now and was wondering if you know what they might be. The dots are on the upper half of my arms and only on the top side reaching from my shoulders to just below my elbows. I also have similar dots on my legs, only on the thighs and only on the front but they are more purple in colour and smoother than my arms.
Avatar m tn I am a 23 year old male and about 6 months ago I epilated my arms for the first time. My arms burst out into these red bumps and dots all over. They looked really ugly and itched alot. Finally i went to a dermatologist and he prescribed i apply benzac and clinch on my arms and microdox for a month. He did not explain why they appeared what they are nothing. 6 months have gone by and most of it has gone but now they are like scars very obvious.
Avatar n tn again bumps cleared up for about 1 week and then reappeared. Bumps are on both arms on the underside of my forearms from inside elbow crease to wrists and no where else on my body. Any ideas? Thank-you.
Avatar n tn I have small red blister type bumps that appear in small group on both lower arms. When I itch the bumps, they bleed slightly and eventually scab over before disappearing in a few days. I've tried hydrocortisone cream and other lotions but nothing works. I know it's not scabies. Any help?
Avatar m tn I am a male and got my arms waxed at home using 'Veet Hair Removal Strips' The next day, I got these large bumps on my hands, as well as a rash all over my arm. These bumps started oozing out a green liquid, so I visited the dermatologist. I was told that the skin in this area has got infected, so I was given an antibiotic called Sporidex as well as a cream containing Betamethasone+Neomycin.
Avatar n tn 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.
Avatar n tn I have non-red bumps on my upper arms. It looks much like goose bumps. I have had this condition almost all of my life. Depending on the time of year - it can be better and worse. It doesn't itch or feel like anything. It just looks bad. What is it and what can I do about it? I would like to wear sleveless shirts.
Avatar f tn But I am positive that there has to be some cure because this is irritating me like crazy!!! I have had red bumps on my arms since I was 8 years old. I am now 18 and they are still there..maybe even getting worse. They are not pimples..just these red bumps and red blotches all over my upper arms. When I get too warm (have a bath or sit in the sun) my arms feel like they are burning and they get redder than usual. They also get pretty itchy.
