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

Do you have fever , weight loss associated with such bumps ?

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
