3 Bumps

weird bumps on my wrist.

I noticed a few day ago that I had a couple bumps on my right wrist. They look like ingrown hairs and feel like it, but they aren't going away and seem to have multiplied over night. The strange part is that there are no bumps anywhere else. Any ideas.
PS - I have not changed laundry soap, lotions, diet or perfume.

  • You might wanna get some neosporin and simply wash that area with alcohol and do that for 72hrs and see if u see any changes but of course im not a doctor or nurse so please feel free to go see one of them to get a better answer.

  • Sounds like Shingles-should be Dr Checked

  • Could it be something computer related like using the mouse/mouse pad? Try cleaning those areas and while u are at it...see if a dab of Clorox Bleach with a Q-tip will help the sore area. This is not a Dr or medical tried or approved method. Try at your own risk!!!

  • My sister and my mom had shingles before and the symptoms happen in stages. At first you may have a headache or be sensitive to light. You may also feel like you have the flu but not have a fever. Later, you may feel itching, tingling, or pain in a certain area.

     Does your rash look like this?? This is shingles.........

  • could be warts to remove them without medicine take a nail file and file them down takes a couple of weeks but it works

  • not shingles! My mom had them before and I remember what they look like. I put a call into the Dr. and she said that it may be from putting on too much lotion and that it is blocking the hair folicales on my wrist. I wash my hands a lot at work and i am always putting on lotion afterwards. So hopefully cutting back on lotion will help. Thanks for all your advice!

  • This could be heat rash from your watch?
