Hi,

The bumps appear to be localized on one arm only. This may be a case of insect bites, contact dermatitis, fungal infections or folliculitis.

However, the bumps do not respond to the antibiotics, so folliculitis my not be likely. A fungal infection or an insect bite may be more likely. I suggest that you have this assessed by your primary physician. A topical corticosteroid may be more helpful for the redness and the swelling.

Do you have any known allergies?

Any fever or previous history of fungal infections?
