Customer Question

I have spots on my hands and arms. this has been happening almost 2 wks now. I went to a wlk in clinic but they didn't know what they were. They are about the size of a pinhead and have a raised spot inside and when it gets older it is shiny on top. Some others are about size of flax seed, same raised center. Now I have them all over. I am a 68 yr female.
