The data you reported is insufficient for a definitive diagnosis to be given. Also, giving a diagnosis without seeing the bumps is very hard.


Bumps from sexually transmitted diseases usually do not start in the arm, but in the genital area instead. The bumps might be caused by an allergy, skin infection, or parasites. You might want to see a dermatologist to see exactly what caused the bumps.
