Okay well these bumps seem to appear and disappear whenever it wants to. I have no idea what it is. It looks like mosquito bites but vary in sizes and it's more like a group of them.. If you need i will post a picture for further help. Please help me figure out what this is.
You have not mentioned whether you have any itching over the bumps. There is a common skin condition called hives or urticaria, which causes red and sometimes itchy bumps on your skin. Hives can occur anywhere on the body such as the trunk, arms, and legs.
Hives are usually allergic (food, medication and insect stings) but may also be due to infections and stress. Many a times no specific cause for them is ever found.
They usually go away on their own, but in a few serious cases, medicine might be needed. The most commonly used oral treatments are antihistaminics (such as cetirizine, loratidine, benadryl available over the counter).
However, if the symptoms persist or increase in frequency or intensity or you experience any difficulty in breathing or sweating etc, you should immediately consult a doctor.
Do write in if you need any other information.
