Bumps on arms

I seem to be getting these little bumps on the back of my arms lately. It's not really body acne, more like little tiny clogged pores. Chat Icon .

I've been using Peter Thomas Roth body cleanser with salycilic acid, but can anyone recommend a good treatment for this?

Re: Bumps on arms

Could be a form of keratosis, you can get lac hydrin at cvs. It used to be prescription but now its over the counter. My dermatologist had recommended this years ago, it helps a lot.

Re: Bumps on arms

Thank you for asking b/c I have noticed this more lately. It's always been there but I guess wearing more t shirts, it's bugging me more.

Re: Bumps on arms

it's keratosis which is extremely common. my derm recommended eucerin. the alpha hydroxy acid exfoliates them away. i've been using it for a couple of months now and noticed a huge improvement.

Re: Bumps on arms

Thanks Ladies! I didn't realize it was actually a condition that was common. I'm going to try a few of your OTC suggestions and if that doesn't help, I'll visit my derm Chat Icon

Re: Bumps on arms

I have it too. My arms are not only bumpy but very red. I tried KP duty by dermadoctor and it did not work for me. Every once and a while I get inspired to do a search and try something new. I read this thread yesterday so I looked around online. There is something called Dream Cream by Lush that seems to get good reviews. I think I'll try this next. I'll let you know how it works for me.

It is very common. My dermo prescribed something.

OMG, I never knew what this was, I thought I was the only one who had it Chat Icon

But mine seems to come and go with intensity, sometimes I can really feel it, sometimes not so much.

Re: Bumps on arms

I too thought I was alone!

My MIL gave me something from Avon - Moisture Therapy Skin Bump Minimizer. I haven't been using it but I will start.

I will update with my results in about a week.
