Raised Itchy Bumps Starting To Spread After 4 Years!
I've had these small almost skin colored bumps on my arm near my wrist. They're in a line somewhat like a track. I thought they were just a weird scar.
It's been 4 yrs and they are starting to appear on my upper arm and are itching.
The tops come off and looks like a regular scratch (it bleeds and looks pink).
Please tell me what you think.
Are these new raised itchy bumps that you are getting appearing in the same way that the ones on your wrist were - in a straight line? Or more like a rash?
Are the bumps on your wrist getting itchy now as well, or just the new bumps on your upper arm?
I'm asking because I'm wondering if they are related or perhaps two separate issues that are coincidentally on the same arm.
The skin is the largest organ and often gets stuck dealing with whatever excess toxins, etc., that the other organs (like the liver and intestines) can't eliminate in a timely fashion.
Your bumps could be the result of something as simple as that, rather than a skin parasite.
They could also be from an allergic reaction to something you've been in contact with recently - either a food, or a chemical (in some type of cleaning product, soap, make-up, etc).
Obviously, try not to scratch. I know that is easier said than done, but scratching usually leads to more spreading and can even cause the affected area to become infected.
Incidentally, you haven't been around any poison ivy (or something similar) recently, have you? Admittedly, poison ivy rash usually has little liquid like bumps rather than just fleshy like bumps, but I still thought it was worth mentioning just in case.
Apart from over the counter anti-itch creams, you can make up a paste of baking soda and water or even a meat tenderizer powder and water (sounds weird I know, but it works) and cover the itchy area with it.
The bumps may just go away on their own, but if they don't and you are still concerned, you can always do a natural herbal cleanse
to detox your body and take some probiotics to boost your immune system. That often eliminates unusual skin conditions without much ado. Since you've had the original bumps for so long, it's well worth considering.To your good health!
