How large are the bumps?

How do they look like?

When have you consulted doctor last?

Do you take any other medicine?

Did you have any test?

Do you have any other symptom or previous illness?

Thank you.

They are flesh colored bumps that are about the size of a pinhead. The cluster contain about 8 little bumps. No pain but they itch like crazy. I take Diovan 320 for blood pressure. I last saw my MD in July and will go back in October. The bumps came after my last appointment. No previous illness, although I do have seasonal allergies.

Thank you for the information,

When you are having history of allergy, it can be due to an allergy or dermatitis.

However, it should respond to steroid cream.

Wart can cause flesh colored bumps but they are not so itchy.

Other possibility is a fungal infection.

You can try otc antifungal creams like lotrimin or lamisil.

If the condition does not improve, you need to get an examination by doctor & prescription.

I hope this information helps.

I will be happy to assist, if you need any clarification.

Please feel free for any follow up query.
