White itchy and little bumps on my arm.
About two months ago I went to my local Dermatologist about eczema on my arm. He gave me some steroid cream and it went away in about four days, but about two weeks later a cluster of white little bumps showed up about an inch away from the eczema spot. Then after another two to three weeks more little white bumps started to show up by my wrists and then they started to itch. They are not big at all there are just a lot of them very close to each other. Maybe twenty to thirty in a cluster.

Hi,

It could be eczema, sweat dermatitis, allergic reactions or eczema.

You need to wash the areas several times with fresh water. Do not use any cosmetic products at the sites.

Apply calamine lotion at the site of the lesions and see if it helps. You could take some oral antihistamine medications like cetrizine or loratadine. You need to maintain a good personal hygiene .

Anti-itch drugs, often antihistamine, may reduce the itch during a flare up of eczema, and the reduced scratching in turn reduces damage and irritation to the skin.

For mild-moderate eczema a weak steroid may be used (e.g. hydrocortisone or desonide), whilst more severe cases require a higher-potency steroid (e.g. clobetasol propionate, fluocinonide).

Eczema can be exacerbated by dryness of the skin. Moisturizing is one of the most important self-care treatments for sufferers of eczema. Keeping the affected area moistened can promote skin healing and relief of symptoms.
