Itchy Lumps in pustule in Female is commonly seen in females having oily skin and those who have acne .

Excess oily skin favors bacterial growth and develops lumps.

This need examination and treatment with Anti Acne creams and treatment please .

This is NOT acne. Come on upper arms, lump size of dime comes under skin and is itchy
. In few hrs becomes red & hot then pustules form. Pustules will break open & drain clear fluid then scab over.
Several bumps may appear at on earth-lasting 3-5 days itchy hot and area is red

My skin is very dry and scaly covered with freckles and brown spots very old I am 86 and was red headed. Some brown spots scale and flake and peel. These bumps are something new and have me worried. I've had several places of skin cancer removed and some places burned in the past. I have difficulty getting to a dermatoligest
