I have hundreds of small flat white bumps on the inside thighs as well as a smaller number of small bumps on my lower leg. I have spoken with my internalist, She suggested they my have to do with friction or over grown hair follicles. The bumps are flat, the size of a of a fine water drop and do not itch. If I scratch off one of these bumps there is no bleeding and it appears to only skin underneath. The bumps contain no fluid or pus. It seems they increase and decrease depending upon time of day. This may just be a perceived phenomena related to lighting. They are very hard to see. I recently noticed that they may have spread or I have become aware of a small number of these bumps on my chest. They are very small so it is hard to tell. My awareness of this entire problem has been about three weeks although they could have always been there and I just did not notice.
Any ideas would be greatly appreciated. I am, in general good health, I do have a lot of hair, I am somewhat over weight, and 37 years old.
I think your suggestions--"This may just be a perceived phenomena related to lighting. " and "My awareness of this entire problem has been about three weeks although they could have always been there and I just did not notice. " are very possibly right on target.
I'd leave them alone and let a skin doctor tell you for sure. They're probably nothing important.
