I had developed white bumps on my thighs and one on my back and I asked my doctor what they were. He stated they were called "Wisdom Bumps" because they show up in later years of life and they do not know what causes them. Durning sleep, I have scratched several of them off and they have formed scabs and do not seem to heal. Is there anything I can do to assist them in the healing process? Has anything new been learned about them in recent years?
