Hi there.
Permit me to address your two issues separately.
The pimples on the arm may arise due to an actual acne problem or be hereditary in nature accompanying a dry skin issue.
Ideally one has to be assessed by a dermatologist on the ground for best results.
However, you may try to use a mild peeling agent containing glycolic acid or AHA (alfa hydoxy acid) & some lotions such as Exfoliac (Merck) are ideally suited for this condition & may be applied atop wet skin after bathing for a month or so.
As for the pain in the right leg, am afraid an orthopaedic would be best suited to answer but might i suggest a positional change & use of a cushion that is geared for car seats.
Do hope both your issues sort out soon enough. Cheers & Good Luck!

Hi Doc, During my 7th month Pregnnancy, my palm and sole suddenly started itching and then it spread onto my whole body. Itching used to aggravate at night. For 3-4 days it continued. I consulted my doc, he gave me Calamine lotion along with Actibile 500 mg (before meal). As I controlled my food intake (avoiding red meat and oily stuff), it reduced automatically. Do I still need to continue the tablet. Also, since most of the time I forget to take the tab before meal, I have it with my folic acid tab after meal. Will it have any bad impact on the baby?? Thanks, Sangs.

Hi, I am 21 and male and have had eczema since birth. The problem I am having is with pigmentation on my abdominal area. The skin on my stomach is darker than the rest of my skin and LOOKS dirty however it is not dirt and seems to be in the skin. I have had this problem for over a year now and it varies in degrees of severity. The skin also sometimes looks like it has a shiny film over it. My skin does get very dry at times and this has lead me to wonder if the discolouration is due to a build up of dead dry skin cells, I have tried exfoliation but my eczema does not respond well to this. Also I have tried keeping the area well moisturised using diprobase and eucerin (containing urea) which helps to reduce the appearance after application but always comes back. I also thought this problem might be really mild stretch marks but dont know if this is likely?? I am really confused by this problem and would appreciate your expertise. Thanks
