    What causes a tiny, red dot skin rash?

    Three years of frustration! For three years, since the beginning of my last year at high school (now 21 years old), I have had small red dots on my arms (which are sometimes inflammed and red), accompanied by small pimples and bumps, and occassional itchiness and dryness of the skin. I have tried many creams (including that proActiv stuff) to no avail. I have a fairly healthy diet and do regular exercise, yet everything I have done hasn't removed it. This rash seems only to cover the front and back of my left arm but not my bicep or inside of it. On my right arm it is less severe, but the dryness and bumps are still there with some occassional redness. I don't know how this came about, as I had none of this up to three years ago; my arms were clear. I don't know if it's an allergy to laundry detergent or something I eat or maybe rosacea, but I'm really getting down about it. Any help would be much appreciated. :)
