How come i get raised white bumps on my skin when i scratch?

How come i get raised white bumps on my skin when i scratch?

On the back of arms and legs, follicular white papules can become more prominent as the surface of the skin is removed from scratching and making the bumps more exposed. See derm to be sure. ...Read more

When i scratch or bump my skin, on any part of my body, a raised hot white itchy rash develops. What could cause this?

Hypersensitive skin: This could represent dermographism, where you can cause welts on your skin with pressure, like writing. Physical urticaria, or hives, also possible. I usually have someone try an oral anti-histamine for this problem. ...Read more

I hope that helps! ...Read more

Perianal rash: Simple pruritis anus doesn't cause those changes unless there has been repeated trauma from scratching, etc. Lichen sclerosis and atrophicus may be the problem. I recommend an evaluation by a dermatologist for diagnosis and treatment. ...Read more
