    Red itchy bumps on my arms only
    A few days ago, I started to get red mosquito like bumps on my arms, they itch like crazy.
    We have ruled out bedbugs as we have treated our home. We do live next to a marina and have a picture window open to it, possibly mosquitoes.
    When I wake up in the morning, I usually break out with these bumps and itch like mad.
    I have no food allergies, I am not taking any medications.
    We recently moved into a new home, but we had an exterminator come and treat our house for anything and everything.
    My boyfriend did use fabric softener for our laundry a few days ago, and I'm starting to think it was that, as it has happened to my mother as well.
    But what else could it be?
    I'm lost... im itching like crazy and miserable!!
    :confused:

    Hi! That just happened to me!! But I only got them on my stomach! I put a cold damp rag on them and it helped with the itching... I had just bought a new fabic softener and that's what it so, so it might have been that with you as well... if not do you have any animals? It could be a flea bite.


    Best of luck!

    I'm not sure what they are but I am suffering from them as well. Both arms below the shoulder and above the wrists. Checked the room for the usual suspects and found no trace of insects but there is a grassy field the other side of the driveway next to my bedroom window. Any information would be helpful.

    My mom switched to a new detergent, that is probably the cause even though I have it on over my arms and legs as well.

    Hey folks! I too have these bumps/hives that appear on my arms as well it was driving me insane. It's caused by the bad UV rays... from the sun. I worshipped the sun for years with no problems until now. I purchased a good UV block and it works! For those trying to rid the hives purchase" tecnu" at any pharmacy. This will dry up the hives quickly and relieve the itching. When venturing out use the highest uv block possible. Hope this was helpful!

    Hi there, I have these red itchy bumps on my arms also, and I was wondering if it was caused by the sun. I recently was alergy tested and found nothing, and then I went to a neurologist because I thought it was Brachial Radial Peritus, but those tests came back negative as well, and now the red itchy bumps. I will try the Tencu and see what that does. Stevani, I am in the U.S. are you? The reason I ask is because I want to be sure this is something I can buy at my local drug store, or if it is a product just sold in other countries. Thanks

    Hi Coolgrmma, yes I live in NJ :) and I'm hive/ itchy free since using Tecnu. That will get rid the hives and itch at which point you don't need to keep applying. Just make sure you apply uv block everyday when in the sun! My arms are tan and free of hives/itch. I hope this works for you.

    I've been getting a lot of these red itchy bumps all over my body. It started from the arms, then I noticed my legs started itching as well and finally one day I woke up to find the left side of my face with red bumps. I have no idea what this is. I've never had allergies or anything that would cause this. I did recently buy a clonge and my buddy told me that it could be because of that. Anyone know how to treat this allergy like symptoms?

    Hey Tim, if you just bought a new cologne and this happened I'd say it's the cologne. Try an over the counter med for allergies and an anti itch cream. Clean anything the cologne may have come in contact with.Many products, especially those containing fragrances and/or dyes, can irritate the skin or cause an allergic reaction. Symptoms include itchy, scaly red patches or rash; swelling; hives; or blisters. Topical (on the skin) corticosteroids can help control the itching, swelling, and redness. Good luck!

    I had the same problem for over a week now. I got no clue how and what causes the fine red itchy bumps on my arms. I don't think its eczema. The more I scratched it, the more it spreads slowly. I just had to stay away from my kid and wash my hand constantly. I looked up online but seems like just like everyone else has no remedy to it.

    Description:
    -fine red bumps
    -super itchy and irritating
    -it spreads out
    -it gets worst when exposed to heat and sweat.
    -it gets really itchy when my hair touches it

    My home remedy when it gets too itchy:

    -I ran hot water over the itchy area. I just let the hot water ran over until the itch go away. I just thought hot water kills bacteria. I did the same process to the other areas
    -Then I washed my arms with a liquid soap "Ajax" (triple action - wash away bacteria)
    -remove soap with hot water
    -pat dry with clean towel
    -finally applied "Eucerin Aquaphor" Healing ointment (advanced theraphy for dry, cracked, and irritated skin).

    I repeated the process twice, and so far and it seemed to work. It calmed down the itchiness and the bumps and redness started to lessen.

    I hope this helps you guys as well.

    Go to a different doctor! His response of "I don't know" is not very professional.
