Does anyone know what these bumps on my arms are?

So I know it's hard to get a picture of what I'm talking about sense I don't even know what it is. I went to the doctor for it but he said its just something I got from someone in my family. But if you have the same problems tell me and let me know if you use anything that helps. :)

Are the on the back of your arms? It could be keratosis pilaris. They look like goosebumps sorta. It's basically a plug in the hair follicle. Exfoliating regularly, both physically with an exfoliating loofah or brush, and with products that have exfoliating ingredients like salicylic acid or alpha hydroxy acids help reduce the occurrence. Hope that helps!

I have the same thing :) it is not contagious it is just little bumps people should be saying anything about them becuase a lot of people have them . Don't try and pop then tho they will create scars... That's not good either... I would take a exfoliation wash to your arms and a scrubby sponge and scrub... That's what I do :)

Some of them have white heads. But I don't have them on my face. My doctor said there just genetic but I think it's more than that because no one in my family has them.

Do they have a white head on it at all? Maybe eczema or milia. Milia are entirely more common on the facial region and have to be extracted with a lancet by a dermatologist because its under the surface of the skin. Have your doctor take a look.
