What is the bump in the arms of dialysis patient?

Help please, how do I avoid razor bumps on arms after shaving?

Shaving: Insure that you use fresh sharp blades vice dull blades. If the hair is more than several mm long – then trim it before shaving it. Wash the area before shaving – warm water can help to soften the hairs. Use a lubricant when shaving. Avoid using products that contain alcohol or are scented. Shave in the direction of the hair – not against it. Be gentle when shaving – don’t push down too hard.

Heat rash: The sun burnt skin is more prone to developing prickly heat rash. You may consult this site for more information on this topic. Http://www. Mayoclinic. Org/diseases-conditions/heat-rash/basics/definition/CON-20033908 For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats.

Son has bumps on arms and hands for about a week. Itchy but not red. What could this be and how can I treat it?

Itchy bumps: Without knowing a little more about the appearance of the bumps and without seeing the rash/bumps themselves it is difficult to say. The best approach would be to have his pediatrician take a look, then if medication is required it can be prescribed. Some of the possibilities that come to mind are: scabies, arthropod bites, atopic/allergic reaction, hyperkeratosis (not generally itchy tho)…...

Colorless bumps on arms shoulders and back, the itching is all over and Comes&goes. I was just out in high heat 100+ degree weather over the weekend?

Miliaria: This sounds like miliaria which is a heat rash or prickly heat reaction. Cool wet compresses and calamine lotion have helped but it will gradually clear when the sweat gland ducts open up again. See a dermatologist as needed if there are any further concerns.

A picture ; history: When is comes to rashes there is no substitute for seeing, either directly or a pic. How long has the rash been there? Is is a long term rash or did is come in the last few days? Is the rash itchy? Could these be bug bites? I would recommend seeing your pediatrician if this rash doesn't go away in a few days or becomes worse. If is looks like this pic it is a form of warts.

Will Keratosis Pilaris get worse in direct sunlight? Like on a cruise ship. Bumps on arms & thighs get 10x worse every time I cruise for some reason

Keratosis pilaris: May be worsening due to dryness. Would try moisturizing in shower with rub of 1/2 coconut oil and 1/2 sugar and afterward use non comedogenic moisturizers. Use sunscreen. Follow up with dermatology.
