Has anyone ever experienced little bumps on your skin during pregnancy?

They are mainly on my lower arms and they aren't pimples. They are light pink and puffy...almost look like a bug bite. They don't itch and other then how they look they don't bother me at all! Does anyone know what they may be and if this is normal? (By the way I am 21 weeks along)

  • I noticed small bumps on my left arm a few days ago. their not pimples or ingrown hair. I don't really worrie about it though. I just take it like if its a rash even though its not itchy.
    I just know that you really change inside and out when pregnant.
    I hope this helped

  • With both of my children I got bumps on my feet. They were just like you described except they weren't pink. I think I might be pregnant now and while I don't have the bumps on my feet I do have them on my arms. I'm not sure if they're bug bites or something else.

  • I asked my doctor about mine and he said they are normal. I cant remember what he said they were. They are like skin flaps kinda right?

  • I got a bunch of skin tags while pregnant on my arms and legs. They start off looking like bug bites and get bigger. luckily, they went away after the baby was born.

  • there called keratosis polaris, I got them to when I was pregnant and still have them, they are
    clogged hair ducts with to much keritain(spelling. they say the best way to try and minimalize it is to us kp duty found at ulta or sephora. or you a mild non drying soap like dove and use a srubby pad to exfoliate and use lots of lotion, hope that helps.
