Basically I noticed the bumps about 5 days ago when shaving, shaving seems to have either cause it to become more apparent or it was just that time for them to appear.

The bumps are tiny, and they are almost not even noticeable unless they start to itch and then I scratch them and they become pink. Mostly it is centralized on one of my knees. There are a few random bumps down my leg to my ankle. It doesn't ALWAYS itch, just a few times a day. It hasn't spread, but I try to resist scratching as much as possible

My mom looked at it and said she thought it was poison oak, because my father had it a few weeks ago. But my father said it doesn't look quite like his did, plus I lack the exposure as I have not been in any weeds or even grass for that matter. I've included a picture of what the bumps look like. Anyone have an idea as to what it could be??

  • I knew a lady that got bumps like that everytime she shaved her legs and it was caused by either an allergy to the shaving cream she used, lotion she used afterwards, or the razor itself. If its an allergy, Benadryl will help the bumps go down and stop itching. You can try using a hair removal cream instead (after your legs clear up) but sometimes those cause allergic reactions too.

  • Thanks for the help, I used an over the counter Poison Oak/Ivy relief and it seemed to go away, though I don't know HOW I got exposed, because I was not outside at all. And Monster I'm not in school, but I will be starting in the Spring so thanks for the heads up. :D
