I have been getting pimple-like bumps on my arm. They do not itch or hurt most of the time. The end up popping like pimples, scabbing and scarring. ?
Maybe KP? This sounds like a condition called keratosis pilaris. It is essentially due to trapped hair follicles with small ingrown hairs although the exact cause is not truly known. A wide variety of options ranging from chemical to mechanical exfoliation, urea treatments, retinoids and even laser hair removal have been used to mention a few interventions. Avoid picking/popping which leads to hyperpigmenta.
I have a pimple like rash (not red skin just bumps) under both upper arms, only itches when tshirt brushes up against it and doesn't hurt?
