Left arm bumps: More information is needed to make even an educated guess. Are they red? Do they itch? Have they spread from a small area to the entire arm? Is only the left arm involved? Skin lesions are best evaluated by being seen by a doc. Your fp/pcp can examine the bumps after getting a good history & provide you with possibilities & treatment.

Cyst or lipoma?: You didn't mention any pain so it's like likely to be an infectious process like cellulitis or abscess. Cysts & glands can often swell up as the pore gets clogged then resolve on their own w/o getting infected or causing pain. Lipoma is a benign (non-cancerous) fatty growth just under the skin. It rarely changes size. Best to go see your family doc for an exam & diagnosis.

Doctor can evaluate: Rashes are very difficult to describe in words, so an exam by a primary care doctor and/or a dermatologist is helpful, when the rash is present. Sometimes rashes occur from bug bites, fungus/yeast, reactions with chemicals, irritants, plants, allergens, etc... If one cannot go to the doctor, then taking a series of photos to show the doctor later is helpful.

Should I be worried about a tiny bump underneath my skin been there for awhile on my left arm?

Should I be worried about a tiny bump underneath my skin been there for awhile on my left arm?

An exam would tell: "bumps under the skin are not uncommon and are usually benign, or harmless to your health. Most commonly they are a type of cyst or fat deposit (lipoma). If the lump does not change in character or size and is not causing problems like pain you are likely not to fear. If it gets red, warm, painful it represent the bump got infected and a doc would need to see you.

Keratosis pilaris: No cure. Worse in winter. Less obvious as you get older. Related to dry skin. OTC 3% salicylic acid creams are used to make it smoother. Frequent application of moisturizers helps. Sometimes cortisone creams are useful. Do not worry: it is never serious. Most people who have it are not even aware of it.

Explanation: Difficult to give you professional answer without seeing and touching this bump. Is this redness around or pain on palpation? If it resolving by itself it means it benign condition what does not need any treatment. If it growing, erythematous and painful, you need see a doctor.

Contact Rash: Typically if you have a one sided specific area it may be related to something you have come in contact with. Make sure you see your primary doctor, and initially look for what may be coming in contact with that area. Also note if there is pus, or redness in the area. Other possibilities include viruses etc, but unlikely just to be in one area.

Tricky: Without an actual examination, I cannot give specific medical advice on your particular health, Dermatologic conditions are hard to evaluate without seeing them. But one spot implies a local cause: Inflammation/infection from specfici exposure or bug bites come to mind

I have two bumps under my skin on my upper left arm (where the vaccines are given) very small. Smaller than peas... What. Can it be?

I have two bumps under my skin on my upper left arm (where the vaccines are given) very small. Smaller than peas... What. Can it be?

Did you have: Vaccines recently in that area? If so, it could be a small local reaction. If not, they could be sebaceous cysts or lipomas (benign fatty lumps). Either way, to be sure, I recommend you get them checked by your doctor.
