Customer Question

I have small round under the skin objects that are soft to the touch on my fore arms. Maybe three or four. I can touch them and they feel sort of spongy. They have never hurt until I was rubbing one of my arms last night and it hurt like a bad sting. One doctor(not a dermatologist said it looked like lapomas. They are very small, maybe fourth of an inch. I have had them for quite a while. It is a mystery to me. They look sort of like little small round bubbles but aren't. Any ideas?????Judy
