Q: itchy flesh colored bumps (very small)

around 3 weeks ago i began becoming itchy... (when i went over to my dads house...) and i acquired small bumbs flesh colored on my pinky finger... they itch the first time so i bit them and poped them all as best as i could... ( they made a crunching popy noise...) and and now... i am still itching from head to toe.. and not only are the bumps back... (first time since the initial) they are also on my elbows... i am quite unsure what this is... as i have never had this happen before... none of my other fingers have bumps... but both elbos do... no bumps anywhere else... (i have not been sexually active in over 8mos.) yet i itch everywhere,,, to the point of causing bleeding... i try to stopmyself... but the urge to itch is tremendous in this hot weather :-\

it started out on the nail joint of my pinky... with around 8-10 bumps... very small mind you... took up the whole top of my pinky joint... between the knuckle and the fingernail...

now they are "climbing" up my finger... and there are some on my elbows....

Sounds like you have hives or some other allergic reaction. i would try taking benadryl for 3 days. If it gets better continue to one week. Do not scratch use hydrocortisone.

well that worked for  the bumps... they have mostly gone away... i say "mostly" simply because they seem to show up in small numbers in very rare frequency over several days on my hands... it has been about a week since i seen those...

but on another note... after those went away starting after the hydrocortizone and the benedryl i was told to use on another site...
i got a lump on my penis. it is on the forskin and itches to high heaven... (as a side note... im not sexually active... havent been for 2 years... aswell as i shower almost daily... (6 times a week)

when i scratch it... it sometimes becomes aggitated and become bigger... up to the size of a lid to a contact case... (i dont know what to measure it with heh.) it starts out half an inch... and becomes closer to 2 inches when swollen.
it is flesh colored and semi hard... bendable but when not errect it is much harder than the surrounding tissue. ... i plan on going to the clinic or something on this one... but would like to know an idea of what it could be before i go in :-\

I can't comment on what you described on your penis, but as for the bumps you described earlier, I have the same thing. The bumps randomly show up on the sides of my fingers, itch like crazy, and the only thing I can do to relieve the itch is to pop them. My brother-in-law has the same thing, as well as a co-worker, and they both saw doctors that informed them it was a type of excema. They were prescribed a steroid cream (stronger than hydrocortisone) for it that seems to help them. Mine isn't that bad, so I don't bother. I was just happy knowing it wasn't a sign of something worse. Again, sorry I don't have an answer for your latest condition, but I thought you'd like to know what the first one most likely is. Good luck!

i found out i had scabies... a friend apparently got them... and somhow gave them to me... but that might fix the problem for you.

just going to point out that if when poppig them they make a satisfying crunchy feeling... then you have scabies. and permethrin aswell as neem oil will get rid of them though neem oil takes longer but doesnt require a prescription. i used neem oil and they stopped and my family member who got them from me used permethrin prescribed by there doctor.
