I have white raised bumps around my ankles and a little ...

Resolved Question:

I have white raised bumps around my ankles and a little on my feet. What is this and what can I do to get rid of them? They get worse in the summer when I'm out in the sun. I love being outside, so I use sunscreen all the time. I'm fair complected but I still tan. I have very dry skin so I use a lot of moisturrizer.

Hi.

Can you provide me with a picture ?

Have you seen a doctor yet ?

What is the duration of the symptoms ?

Do these itch ?

Reply to Dr Amit Munjal's Post: I have not been to a doctor for this, and Yes, they do itch sometimes. Also I went through my menopause at a very early age and that is when this started to occur.

Hi,

From your history i am suspicious that the cause of these bumps is ? allergic since your symptom worsen in sun and summers and associated itching . Most likely Provisional diagnosis is Eczema .

Ideally you need to avoid solar exposure , use anti itch lotion like calamine lotion .Emmoliants containing squalane can be applied all over the dry skin several times a day .

Antihistaminics can be taken for the symptomatic releif from the itching .

Locan steroid and gentamycin containing ointment may be prescribed by your doctor .

Also such consult a dermatologist for a clinical examination .

Hope this helps
