Hello,
Thanks for the query.
Goose bumps like bumps can be any of the following.
1. Keratosis pilaris
2. Lichen spinulosus
3. Phrynoderma
these all are big names but simple conditions.
Only the treatment will vary a bit.
I would like to see the lesions to give a better diagnosis.
Can you please upload a photograph of lesions.
This will help me in giving a closer diagnosis.
Let me know if you have any other doubts.
Thank you
