My son recently got a tattoo and now has small red bumps that iych just on his one arm? Could he be alletgic to the ink

Mgt workup. It is possible that he has reacted to the ink, or that there is a developing infection. I suggest applying Neosporin to the area, keeping it clean and dry. If the reaction worsens, a follow up is recommended. An online appointment with photo uploaded can be booked healthtap.com/DosanjhMD Code: NCYHPZ.

Doctor can evaluate. Bumps may be conditions such as keratosis pilaris, eczema, comedones, or folliculitis. Each would have a different treatment, so a primary care doctor or a dermatologist can evaluate and give some recommendations. Rashes are hard to describe in words.
