White bumps on legs, use hydrocortisone?

White bumps on legs, use hydrocortisone?

Hard to say: It is always hard to treat a rash without seeing it especially with such a limited description. How long has it been around? Is it weeping? Is it itchy? It could many different things but if it gets worse with Hydrocortisone then see your doctor.

My younger cousin is three and he have these small white bumps on his leg and back. What are they and is it possible to treat them at home?

Many causes.......: It will be very hard to diagnose a skin condition just hearing one sentence. Needs #1. History, e.g. How long, close contact with similar condition, swimming in pool, fever, itch, drainage, etc. #2. Detail exam. Of size, shape, color, texture, central dimple, cheesy, greasy material inside, etc. Etc. Tell parents to take your cousin to his pediatrician. Thx. For your concern for the cousin.

Bite with irritation: ? If it does not bother him then do not bother to treat it and watch it. If it starts to spread then it might need to be seen by the pediatrician.

I have tiny white bumps on my legs that turn into scabs. I have about 6 of them now just on my legs, I thought it was bed bugs but what do you think?

Keratosis Pilaris: This is a common condition affecting people from across the spectrum of all ages. The treatment is generally simple with topical exfoliants, anti acne preperations, which help to turn over the superficial layers of skin for a healthier newer skin layer. This may cause some regness and itemporary inflammation and resolves with continued treatment. Severe cases may need prescription meds fro your dr

I have itchy white bumps all over my upper legs. They weren't there when I went to sleep. Is it a skin allergy?

I have itchy white bumps all over my upper legs. They weren't there when I went to sleep. Is it a skin allergy?

Hard to tell: There are many causes for itchy bumps but the fact that they are confined to the upper legs suggests that the problem may be from a contact allergen. Did you wear any new pants, underwear, or skirt within the past 3-7 days?

Leg hurts with bump on back on knee?

Leg hurts with bump on back on knee?

See below: Sounds like a baker's cyst, which is a collection of excess joint fluid which makes it's way out of the knee capsule to the back of the knee between two muscles. It is not a serious condition, but usually indicates an arthritic issue in the knee. It can cause discomfort. Sometimes we drain these but they usually come back. You shoud get your knee examined to determine if this is what it is.
