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. :)
I know it has been a while, but did you ever find any relief from your symptoms? I am not a doctor and can't diagnose you, but I think a trip to a professional would be in order if it has been bothering you for three years. While it could be an allergic reaction to something, I think you might have been able to change up some of your daily interactions enough in three years to discover what the trigger might be. (Keep in mind it might also be a food allergy.) However, it could very well be soem other condition.
If you have already seen a doctor or have found soem relief, would you be willing to return to the site and let us know what yo've learned? I'm sure there are others with similar symptoms that might benefit from your experience.
Best of luck,

I was told that it is severe dry skin. You need to apply a strong dermatologist lotion daily, and they should clear up
forget the dermatoligist they just want you to keep coming back.TRY VAGISIl.it may sound crazy but i bet you it will work.rub it into the bumps and pimples and let it sit overnight.and wash it off in the morning.and creams are going to irritate your face believe me that is the most precious part of our body.dont let the crams ruin it.quit being the lab rat,I dont use any creams because my face easily breaks out.Stay away from the lotions face powders blushes.and use only oatmeal soap to wash your face that will dry them out.
