Customer Question

I have rough skin on my arms all of a sudden. With lots of little white bumps I tried to pop one and it made a pretty deep hole and the skin raised to a large bump. Now I have small scabs on raised larger bumps. Any ideas?

Hi there,
White bumps are commonly sebaceous cysts or oil gland cysts.
This can be due to the excess keratin deposition on the skin giving rough appearance.
You can use a skin cleanser like benzoyl peroxide daily.
Also salicylic acid solution may help with clearing up.
