I get these little red bumps on my upper arms & I was wondering what they were. They get better & worse through out the day. I don't have them anywere else & I don't have any acne or pimples.

Any ideas on what they are & how to get ride of them?

I know there's a term for it but I can't remember what it is. Do a search on Google. You can try exfolliating with a scrubby cloth every morning in the shower. If that doesn't help and the red bumps are annoying, you can go to a dermatologist to get it checked out.

I have them as well, exfoliation has helped, but 50% of them are still there.

Do you have any allergies? Certain plants release pollen at different times throughout the day and it could be what you are experiencing.

I had something similar a long time ago. Went to the dermatologists and found out that i am allergic to certain kinds of chemicals. That might be the problem check with a doctor.

I'm allergic to Tide laundry detergent. When I wore clothes that were washed in it, my whole body would get itchy hives.

I've always been a short sleeves shirt type of guy, so I thought maybe the sleeves were rubbing my arms and giving ingrown hairs, that's why I've used a lufa on my arm each day. Like I said, it helped, but I think to get rid of them completely I would have to ask the doctor.

Excema. Nothing really will completely get rid of it. " Well Skin" body lotion with glycolic acid does help a bit if you put it on twice a day. A decent tan will make it barely noticeable. There's really not too many options. I have asked doctors before and they told me it usually never goes completely away, you can just lessen the severity of it.

Cortizone ointment (not the cream) works well for keeping eczema under control if used daily...twice a day if it's bad. Some foods will irritate eczema, dairy is often a common one.

I don't think PimpJigga's description is of eczema though...I'm gonna look on google to see if I can find what I was thinking of in my other post here.

Keratosis Pilaris

^ That's what I was thinking it might be. I had some as a kid and very mildly as an adult, mostly in winter when it's dry out. Using an exfoliating cloth and moisturizer will clear it right up on me now if it starts acting up.

BTW, when I searched on google, this thread was the 4 link it found to "red bumps on arms." LOL

i have a little red on my arms too. Its called rosatia??? <Sp>
Anyways I scrub it with a luffa while in the shower then put this cream on it after wards. It helps too much its almost gone. Especially when you get a tann. Its the winter that makes it red for me. But i got more important things to worry about. Just rub some lotion or vitamin E and keep scrubbing it will improve but never go 100 % away unless ur tan year round.

Thanks for the link I forgot what it was called. I have this and so does my son but my daughter is soft as a peach. I just scrub the areas good with a washcloth ( a loofah is too rough) and use johnsons baby oil with vitamin E and aloe before i dry off. it works
