In brief: Acne Conglobata

If you have in fact been diagnosed by an experienced dermatologist with Conglobata, you will need aggressive medical treatment such as Accutane but I doubt this rare type of disfiguring Acne can be isolated to just arms.
Also, since you have not provided your real age or gender we can't provide you with relevant response and direct you to your dermatologist.
