About 3 months ago I started developing tiny bumps on my chest and neck and some hardly there on my face....anyways I don't have insurance so I went to a free clinic for a regular check up and show them to her and she told me to take benadral and cortiozone lotion (which did not help) The bumps do not itch or hurt, most of them are the same color as my skin so they kind of look like goosebumps, they are noticable b/c there are so many and you can feel them. If you or someone you know has this and know what it is or how to cure it please respond ASAP...Thanks
The doctor you consulted in the free clinic probably thought that you were experiencing some kind of allergy so she gave you anti-allergic drugs. Benadryl (diphenhydramine) is an antihistaminic drug and Cortisone is a corticosteroid drug. Both are given for treating allergies. It is very hard to diagnose âtiny bumpsâ are without seeing them. You should next consult a dermatologist about them for an opinion, diagnosis, and treatment options.
