I have small bumps under my skin, mostly on my forearm. They are cyst like and itchy. Could itbe neurofibroma?
Doubt it: If you had neurofibromatosis, you should have been diagnosed at a much younger age. Neurofibromas are characteristically firm, as they are solid nerve tumors, rather than cystic structures. Itching is not a typical symptom of a neurofibroma, rather a symptom reflecting allergy or inflammation. A contact dermatitis or other skin condition sounds more likely. See your pcp or a dermatologist. ...Read more

The most important question here is if the lump was present prior to the incident where he bumped his arm. This is a common, the discovery of a lesion that is thought to be from the injury that occurred but was actually present prior to that. The bottom line here is to have your son evaluated by his primary care provider. It may just be a simple cyst or lipoma, however it needs to be seen.
Best of luck. ...Read more

Not Sure: When you have bumps that come and go quickly, it is unlikely that it is a harmful condition. Some possibilities include a contact or irritant dermatitis, and hives. There are rare instances where people are allergic or get rashes to water. As for the dry skin, I like for my patients to apply creams or moisturizers within 5 minutes of bath or shower- cerave & cetaphil are good starting points. ...Read more

Last week Monday night I felt a small bump on my arm with a little blue around the next morning up till today it has been blue the bump is stil their feels like a little rock under my skin?
What else?: Did you pull any muscle or tendon from straining your arm excessively (weight lifting?)? Did you get bitten by an insect? My guess is that this is from a hemorrhage which will likely take a couple more weeks to go away often leaving a yellowish tinge on the skin for a little longer. If the lump fails to improve or gets larger, best to consult your doctor. ...Read more
