Red Burning Pimple Like Bumps On Arm

My brother has big red bumps, pimiple like on his arms. They don't itch but they burn, do you know what this could be? I was thinking bed bugs or skin irratation im not sure. He is really concered and if he dosn't get anwsers soon he will go to the emergency room.

Answer

Hi Liz

I do think he needs to be seen by a doctor. Nobody can accurately know what is causing these bumps unless he is seen.

It could be anything...was he exposed to any new laundry detergents, soaps, or lotions? Has he been outside in the woods? Was he exposed to any insects or plants? It could be allergy related or a symptom of an illness.

Doesn't sound like bed bugs...as the bites cause a lot of itching. Here is a web site with photos of what bed bug bites look like.

He needs to see his doctor. Please do come back to tell us what was the cause of his rash.

Thank you for your question.
