Could small, itchy bumps on my forearm be hives? If so, how quickly can hives occur?

Yes.: Hives can come up very quickly - as you watch, sometimes. But there are many other causes of "small itchy bumps" - without more information it's hard to narrow it down. Your best option is to let a dermatologist look at them and tell you for sure what they are. ...Read more

I have small bumps under my skin, mostly on my forearm. They are cyst like and itchy. Could itbe neurofibroma?

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

I have a rash on forearms & thighs. Skin colored, slightly pink. Not itchy. Small bumps all over, not patchy. Possibly allergic reaction to z-pack?

Many possibilities: This could be a reaction to a z-pac, a new food, or some other exposure. I would hold stop the med for now and contact your pcp in the am. S/he may want to change the med or have you evaluated. This med is going to be in your system for a while. So more rash may continue to come up for some time. ...Read more

I have small itchy bumps on my arm and one is blistering. What can this be?

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... Itching makes it more likely an allergic rash or bug bites. If one cannot go to the doctor, a video consult on HealthTap PRIME may help. ...Read more

Very small white itchy bumps on half arm spreading fast around tinea versicolor patch.?

Keratosis Pilaris: It sounds like you have a condition called keratosis pilaris. This causes tiny, rough prickly bumps to form on the backs of the arms, the thighs, the buttocks and occasionally on the face. A mild exfoliating skin cream with 12% ammonium lactate used once to twice a day will smooth these areas out nicely. If you have itch, a mild cortisone cream from your doctor can help. ...Read more

Dry skin?: From your description, the problem appears to be what is called keratosis pilaris. Skin tags have a stem. I would suggest that you try applying a moisturizer on your body within 3 mins after bathing and perhaps another application with or without bathing 12 hrs later and see if you can see improvement after about a week. If not, consult a dermatologist. Avoid scented or anti-bacterial soap. ...Read more
