What Does It Mean When You Have Red Bumps That Are On Your Back That Are Not Pimples??

Answer

Hello, Taler,

Red bumps on your back could be a symptom of a myriad of conditions. Do the bumps itch? You may have some sort of rash due to an allergic reaction of some kind. That could be caused by food, medicine, environment, cleaning agents, etc. I would suggest seeing your doctor for a diagnosis. There are some over the counter ointments and creams that can help if the bumps are itching. You could speak to your pharmacist about which would be appropriate until you can get in to see your physician.

Best Wishes,

V
