I have been experiencing goosebumps down one side of my body for 2 months. The goosebumps present themselves in strange patterns on the skin. Advice?

In brief: Goosebumps

Do the goosebumps itch? There is a condition called keratosis pilaris that often occurs over the ouside of the upper arms and occasionally on the upper outer thighs, but these usually do not itch.
An over-the-counter lotion, amlactin, often helps this condition. If it itches, it might be due to a medication you have been taking.
