    Itchy small bumps on skin?
    I have a lot of small itchy bumps on my back, and a few on my sholders. All seem to be raised a little and several are a little pink. Some are in groups and some are by themselves. They itch a great deal, but do not look like pre-cancer sores like I have seen on the internet. The itch most of the day, sometimes more than others. I do have vitiligo and had it for about 15 years. I have tired Benadryl and Amlactin... some seem to have possibly gotten smaller, but they have not gone away. I got them soon after I had my prostate removed... but now this has gone on for more than 6 weeks... concerned!

    Sounds like Eczema

    I agree with Ashley, it sounds like eczema, or perhaps a rash. However, we will not be able to diagnose your condition on the site. If you are concerned about it, and it sounds like you are, you should see your Doctor and have him check it out.

    P.S. if it is eczema, or rash, normally the Doctor will ask you if you have changed your laundry detergent, your body soap, shampoo; have you had a lot of stress lately, etc. etc.
