I have lots of small white itchy bumps on my skin. It is all over my body but mostly on my hands. The skin initially feels itchy and hot, and when I scratch the bumps appear. It is quite irratating. I don't think it's an allergic reaction to anything, as it doesn't appear in an regular pattern.

Does anyone have any idea what this could be?

  • I think that I have the same thing. I squeeze mine and it starts to eat away at my skin. When I pick at the to look under the scab it pulls the scab back and suck it inside of it. I know it sounds far fetched I was shocked to see that. I feel then moving the ones on my leg. I buy alcohol and peroxide by the quart. This all started when I got home from 11 days in the hospital and open heart surgery. The first night in my apartment I didn't sleep much. I woke up covered in bites/bumps something this was Oct, 2013. I went to the VA and they gave me some cream corazone I think. It got worse and I went back to the VA and told them that I think it's a bug or pearisite and they put me in a locked ward thinking that I was trip en or something. So I am still fighting my issues with my skin trying to get something done at the VA and it's 2015. I still have what ever it is.
