I have small bumps...

I have small bumps coming up on my back chest and arms. They itch very bad. It seems like when I take a shower the itch worse.

Doctor's Assistant: What seems to make the symptoms worse or better? In general, how would you describe your health lately?

I lotion down with oil after each bath and that helps some. An hour or two later I'm back itching.

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

Not that I can think off.

I'm 34. Female.
Two weeks ago
No other symptoms. No illness.
I went to the health department and said I ha e dry skin. To keep my self moisturized. I don't take any medicine.

Thank you for the input.
I am very sorry for your symptoms.
Dry skin can cause itching.
However, bumps can be from an allergy, bite
Response to allergen varies from person to person.
The cause may not be apparent always.
You can try Claritin or zyrtec for itching.
Hydrocortisone cream can be applied.
Those are available over the counter.
If the symptoms do not improve, I would advise to consult a dermatologist to have an examination.
Steroid or prescription grade antihistamines can be needed.
I hope this information will be helpful.

I feel better already! Thank you.

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.

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
