Small white round bumps on shoulder, back, chest. Red bumps on arms. MMJ patient. Possible cause?

Hi, recently I have been getting small white roundish scar tissue like bumbs on my shoulders back and chest. I also get little red bumbs on my upper arms from time to time. They never hurt or itch I think it is either a chicken skin rash or follicular macular atrophy? I used to have bad acne, I am a mmj patient and was wondering what may be causing this? Can it be from smoking medical marijuana? And what may help my problem? Please help

Hi there ~

I understand your concerns. I believe that you are having a rash that is not going away and is on certain regions in your body only. It can be a lot of things form your description. The first thing that comes to mind is atopic dermatitis and I believe you need to consult a dermatologist to get a proper diagnosis and get appropriate treatment for the condition. I hope and wish you the best in recovery.

I hope this helps. Take care and have a lovely day!
