Bumps on Wrist
For about a year now I have had some small bumps. They are white in color. They don't hurt they are just there. My hands can get extremly dry and sometimes even bleed, but that is near my knuckles. They are on the top side of my wrist. I just want to know what they are and how I can get them to go away. Please help.

Hello,
I cannot confirm anything without examination but it can be lichen nitidus. It is characterized by 1-2 mm, discrete and uniform, shiny, flat-topped, pale flesh-colored or reddish-brown papules. Generally it is self limiting but severe cases may need glucocorticoids.
I would suggest you to consult a dermatologist and get it evaluated. Also then it has to be differentiated from contact dermatitis and dyshidrotic eczema.
Hope it helps. Take care and please do keep me posted on how you are doing or if you have any additional queries. Warm regards.
