I was on the way home from a vacation to Mackinac Island when I noticed these tiny, flesh-colored bumps on my arms. They were strange, but they didn't hurt so I didn't think much of them. That was on July 1. Within five days they had spread onto the back of my hands and all the way up my arms. Now they're on the back of my ears as well. They itch now, too, something terrible. I have a doctor's appointment on Monday to see about them, but I was wondering if anyone has any idea about what they might be. I can't find anything about this online, and the only thing I can do right now to relief the itching is to cover my arms in Caladryl, and that relief is very temporary.
I don't think what I have is contagious because my husband is around me all the time and has directly touched the bumps several times and hasn't got anything.
By the way, the bumps looks like miniature goosebumps. They're very subtle.
