i have an unusual skin disorder since i was a child,

there are small brown bumps all around my body (chest, back, arms, abdomen, legs)
they seem to be blocking the pores, or more precisely the opening of the hair, they itch quite often and when the weather is cold (less than 20 degrees Celsius) the skin becomes dry and really really itchy.

been diagnosed with skin asthma before, although asthma runs in the family, i never had a case of asthma.

other doctors said i was lacking vitamin a, took concentrated doses of vitamin a to no avail.

another said that some of the bumps look like warts, but had no idea what they were on the overall scale.

please advise, i dont have a clue what is going on.

  • I had a problem with the bath cosmetics, that i bought from a hypermarket. I`m from Andorra, and my daughter Maria had an alergy inducted by a bath product. I went from town to town, and no one couldn`t help my little angel :( . I was lucky when a dr from Barcelona, Antonio Famagusta discover that the alergy is inducted by a parasite from a cosmetic company. I sue them .. but i-m to small for that mafia. Now I'm scared about any food, any cosmetics what should i do ?
