I've always had red- or flesh- colored and very small bumps on my upper arms areas, that never bothered me but recently it seems they are spreading to my lower arms. These marks do not hurt, itch, burn or have a head like a pimple but are noticable due to the slightly raised texture and redish hue. My mom said it is a form of eczema but I have no clue. Does anyone know what this is and how to get rid of it? Also is it normal for freckles to just appear out of no where? I am in my early 20s with a tan complexion and I tan easily, barely burn. A friend said they are sun freckles, however I have not been in the sun yet this summer!!! They are very small, needle tip sized brown spots scattered on my arms, a few on my legs and I noticed three on my face today. They look just like small freckles, and although it's not noticable if someon's not examining my face, I know they are there and want to know how they just appeared!! Just curious...any suggestions?
It sounds like keratosis pilaris, and it can be related to eczema. I have both in severe form. There's no cure, but you can keep the bumps smooth by exfoliating every day in the shower and using a good moisturizer, preferably one with glycolic acid in it.
