Hello and thanks for trusting me to help you. I am a board certified consultant with over 30 years of experience.

I understand your concern.

In my opinion you should undergo a complete evaluation and the bumps you describe in arm can be due to infection or allergy.

You can undergo



Serum Uric Acid

RA factor

Also your doctor may advise X-Ray of the arm as well to evaluate the bones.

Also chances are that the pain and tingling you describe can be due to Cervical radiculopathy as well.

Let me know if you have any further query so we can discuss it thoroughly in every aspect.
