    My 19-year-old daughter has tiny red bumps on her arms and legs. She says these bumps come when her body temperature goes up. Any idea what these may be and what causes them?

    I believe she probably has heat bumps (aka sweat bumps) and the official name is miliania.  I also get heat bumps but normally on my neck and arms.  I use hydrocortisone which you can buy at any pharmacy over the counter to soothe and heal them.

    Lisa Ann,

     

    Did your daughter ever find any relief for the bumps?  I am not a doctor and can't diagnose her over the internet, but I agree with our community member that it could simply be miliaria, known by several common names already listed.  I've also heard it called a heat rash.  Sometimes people do grow out of it, but since your daughter is already 19, I'm not sure if she will.  How long has she been experiencing them? 

     

    Another possibilty is an allergic reaction to something, possibly even a detergent in her clothing.  Please let us know what you've learned if you are able to return to the community.  I'm sure your discovery can help out others!

     

    Best of luck,

    James
