This happened a week ago. I got 2 little bumps on my left forearm and i figured they were ingrown hairs or something of this nature. They itch a little but not extreme. Everyday it grows on my forearm and itches and gets redder. They are little bumps and kinda raise the skin a little. My fiance popped one and it had a clear small amount of fluid come from it. I havent changed anything like detergents and thought it could be a dye that I was allergic to in mouthwash or mt dew (red 33) I stoped using it and used baking soda and water to create a paste and it mellows the redness for a bit. I used cortazone 10 and it dosnt do nothing. I also used zinc ointment and bactricin and it wont stop. I dont have much money for a doctor visit and Im not sure what it is. I washed my sheets on my bed but my fiance sleeps with me and she dosnt have this.
Could it be Keratosis Pilaris? There are a lot of tips that can definitely help the dry skin and little red bumps associated with KP. Check out this website www.littleredbumps.com. It has a ton of information on KP...hope this helps!
I get these too. 1 here or there, not a rash, not keratosis pilaris. Maybe blocked pores or infected hair folicles? I only seem to get them on the top of my forearms.
I have many theories:
I have been taking Omeprazole(Prilosec) for a long period of time, but these just started recently. I have been stressed about being laid off in the past month, (same time frame).
I have had a gum infection the past few weeks, and have been overdosing on Vitamin C and Vitamin E, (Also a possibility)
Also, I live in a condo that has been put up for short-sale (More stress), BUT , we have been packing a lot of old, dusty stuff in boxes to get ready...dust has dust mites...mites cause scabies...hmmm.
Your bumps sound just like mine though.
