arm bumps

I have always had very very soft, smooth skin all over my body. A  few days ago I woke up and felt a few little tiny bumps on the upper part of my right arm. Within the past two days the small patch has spread to almost the enitre part of my upper right arm (from about my elbow to below my shoulder). They are not hives, they are not zits. They do not bother me in the physical sense but I just dont understand where they came from and why there are there. They are not hereditary, and I have never had them before. Someone suggested to me that they could be a result of dehydration - is that true?
heelp?

Hi,

The chances that these are dueto dehydration are less.

This could be due to dermatitis, some fungal or bacterial infection , etc.

Nothing can be said with surety without having a look at the lesions.

Is this a single lesion or multiple lesions? Do they pain or itch?

It would help to try some warm compresses.

If the lesions still persist, you should consult your doctor and get a clinical examination done.

Let us know about how you are doing and what your doctor advises.

Regards.
