Common Questions and Answers about Bumps on arms white


Avatar n tn Hi! I am 11 years old and I have some white bumps on my arms. This has been going on for maybe the past.. two years? And, There are alot of those tiny bumps on the back of my upper arms. When I scratch them they become brighter white and sometimes some white chalk-like stuff goes on my arm. My parent's are both nurses and they say it's no big deal but I just want to know what it is because it confuses me sometimes.
Avatar m tn in a week or 2 it eventually turned into white circular/oval white spots. these spots are on both my upper right and left arm and very few spots on my forearms. some of the spots are very tinted and are hard to see. i have had these spots for about 4 months and they have not spread. initially when i had the red bumps, my skin itched, but when the skin turned white my skin didnt itch anymore. the spots turn red if they are in the sun for too long.
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 also have these white spots. They are not bumps, they are just white, round circles on my arms. Any sort of help will be appreciated. Thank you.
Avatar n tn i also have white itchy bumps on my arms, i noticed a lot of teenagers around our age get them, i've heard that they are caused by lack of protein, and i've also heard that you can get them from the sun. Im not exactly sure what they are. The spots on my arms are very dry, I have tried to put lotion on but it doesnt help, so if you find anything please let me know.
Avatar m tn I have white/clear coloured spots on my arms, and they are just like small lumps, they varey in size. If one is squeezed a white worm consistensy comes out about 1cm long. It is a stiff consistency, not watery or anything like that. They seem to only appear on my upper arm but I really dont know what it is.
Avatar n tn I have some small bumps on my arms that start as small white heads and then 'pop' and become larger open sores. they seem to be spreading on my arms. they are seem to be concentrated on my upper left arm but one appered on my right arm. they don't seem to be healing even after about 3 weeks. also they are puffy on the outside and puss out when touched. any idea what this could be or how i can make them go away?

968590 tn?1247587654 Hello, Without examination,confirmation of a diagnosis is tough,but it sounds like keratosis pilaris.The other possibility is of folliculitis.Keratosis pilaris is a common genetic follicular condition that is manifested by the appearance of rough bumps on the skin like goose bumps and hence colloquially referred to as "chicken skin". Keratosis pilaris occurs when the human body produces excess keratin, a natural protein in the skin.
Avatar m tn Each day of the three days I got more bumps and after three days if I look closely I have a ton of smaller bumps on both arms - 50+ on each arm (noticed after I was looking hard to figure out what the heck is itching so bad on the top of my hand and forearms. The pimple like bumps are not open sores and do not ooze. I attached a couple of picks, but keep in mind they grow when in the sun all day and these pictures are of the bumps after they have reduced in size some.
Avatar n tn After reading information about warts, I determined it wasn't which confused me because I had no idea what it could be. These white bumps (couple are red/pinkish) are on the shaft of my penis, but none on the head, scrotum, or surrounding areas. THere are roughly 20 not really grouped, but mostly on one side (but there are some all around. It sounds like they are cysts after reading some of the other questions..but what exactly are cysts? are they health threatening?
Avatar f tn I have had bumps under my arms for a few months now. I don't have health insurance and cannot afford to see a doctor. The bumps started under one arm and eventually spread to the other. They are red, tender and vary in size. Some have whiteheads like a pimple, but they do not feel or act like zits. The white is deeper, farther under the skin. Some have spread back to where my arm and back meet, and down to where my bra sits.
Avatar n tn Hi, I've been diagnosed with exczema and have flaky white skin frequently on my arms and little white bumps on my elbows. Also, a patch of red exczema rash on my ankles. Recently though I've noticed some dots appear that are similar to the bumps on the elbows but raised a bit more irritated, with a white center like a pimple. On my arms mainly. I was worried about bug bites but now I'm thinking maybe folliculitis?
Avatar n tn My wife last night developed two small patches of bumps on her arms last night that seemed to itch. They kind of looked like goose bumps. They seem to be better but are still there this morning. The patches are only about an inch by an inch. Are these anything to be worried about and is there anything that she can do to help it heal?
Avatar n tn Hi, I have randomly developed this rash- it started on my lower legs and spread to my thighs and arms. It was on the front of my legs at first, but also occurs on the backs now as well.
Avatar m tn I got tested for everything else and all results came up negative but I have noticed now that i have little white bumps appearing everywhere on my body, mostly on my arms. Some of them are in little clusters and they itch really bad. I do not know what this is....any advice would be appreciated.
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 I have had bumps on my arms and thighs and knees and on the inner thighs since I was little. My doctor told me to get a rough sponge and rub the skin that does not help at all. Sometimes they get more itchy sometimes less sometimes there is more of them some of them turn white like pimples. The ones on the knees look like there is hair trapped in them meaning ingrown hair.
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 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
Avatar n tn If broken, they produce a sticky clear-yellowish substance that dries hard and waxy again, but does not seem to wash off. The bumps on my arms and chest have stayed the same over the 5 months, on the other hand, the bumps on my beard have spread from chin, to sideburns, cheeks, eyebrows, around the nose and scalp. I notice these bumps seem to appear more if I do not shave my face.
Avatar n tn what are and how do i get rid of, bumps on fingers hands arms legs knees and back
Avatar n tn Ever since I was pregnant 12 years ago, I've had small white raised bumps on my legs and arms. They do not itch or change size. They increase in volume slightly every year. Besides looking ugly I don't notice them. Three doctors have prescribed different treatments from burning them off to a retin-A treatment. Burning off was successful but I have hundreds of bumps. Retin-A burned my skin. Any ideas?
