Red Bumbs On Upper Arm

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

I know I read somewhere on this board about people who have little red bumbs on their upper arm, and it is also common the the upper legs and buttocks. My husband has this, and I'd like to do some research on it. Can someone tell me the name? Also, is there anything he can do to get rid of them?

Thanks so much!

I don't know what they are called, but I had them all over my upper arms and thighs... they completely went away once I went gluten free.

Hi Nini,

As far as I know, he doesn't have either condition. His mother had the same pumps, but they have gone away with age.

hmmm... all I know is that mine went away when I went gluten free. The only other thing I could think of would be heat rash from clothes? Just a thought?

I have a friend that worked in an allergists doctors hospital for a short time and also had allergy treatments. She told me those bumps show that a person is having an allergic reacation to something. It could be a normal allergy like breathing in pollen or it could be from gluten type reactions. I had the bumps also but since going gluten-free I don't have them anymore.

Ck this out--sounds like this to me. If it is--these bumps are common in people and has to do with pores clogging and needing exfoliation. The best way to get rid of them I have found is the lactic acid lotion. Your drug store should have it, but it may be behind the pharmacy counter. Amlactain is a brand I've used in the past--gets rid of those bumps within a few weeks.

I used Vaseline Firming and Radiance age defying lotion and it helped with them. They say to use an lotion with Urea in it. It helped me. Also mine went away after gluten-free but it was also the time I started using Dial Antibacterial soap- white bar. I have very sensitive skin. I used to not use lotion on my arms thinking I was clogging them up but they are really dry skin clogged up so lotion helps. I would put it on in the morning after my shower.
