Causes Of Pimple Like Rash On Both Arms
I have over 12 small round (not perfectly circular) lumps, different sizes, on both arms, neck, & couple on legs. Are not pimples. Dr. Dismisses.?

Possibilities include include cysts or lipomas(benign fatty tumors) but a biopsy would give more information. These types of lesions can be associated with inherited conditions so it's useful to ask family members if they have similar lesions, then follow up with your doctor. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

Pinky Tiny Pimples-like Rashes on the back of both hands & starts to feel itchy after few hours...spreading to arm slowly...can I take Cetirizine?
You could but..: a better choice might be diphenhydramine (Benadryl) but the cetirizine is less likely to make you drowsy so you can start with that and if it doesn't work try the diphenhydramine.

Rash: It's very difficult to diagnose skin rashes without a picture, but it could be patches of eczema (which don't always have to itch). If it's symmetric on the upper arms, we think of things like keratosis pilaris, which doesn't itch, but can be cosmetically bothersome. It doesn't sound like an urgent concern, and getting it checked in the next 1-2 weeks should be fine. ...Read more
