Lumps/cysts/fatty deposits on shins

I have a few small cysts (like peas- that move if I touch them) on each of my shins.

I also feel fatty type lumbs on my shins.  It pains a little but I am not sure if it's just in my head.....

What can I do to prevent this?

Hi,

Do you shave your legs or use any other method of hair removal? This could be due to dermatitis, eczema or folliculitis.

Could you describe the lesions?

Keep the areas clean and well moisturised. Apply calamine lotion at the sites of the lesion. Consult your doctor if an antibiotic cream is required.

Let us know about how you are doing and if you have any other doubts.

Post us about what your doctor advises.

Regards.
