Bumps om forehead. Cause? Why does it stay discolored?

I have bumps recurring on my forehead . I am 61 - female. Started at my right temple, went away, then came back 2 weeks later. Now I have another bump the size of a quarter on my left temple. Smaller bumps higher at my ahirline. They itch quite a bit. I have several environemental allergies. The bumps started about 2 months ago, last a few days, then disappear but skin stays discolored. They do not hurt to touch. Any suggestions?

Welcome to HCM.

It seems that you may be having either irritant or allergic contact dermatitis.
You have itchy lesions on forehead and temporal area.

The cause might be some irritant or allergen.
It may be dust, soap,cosmetics,shampoo,balm,hair dye,hair color ,oil, perfume,pollen,clothes,wool,sunray...etc
Stress might exacerbate the disease..
Certain food like sea food,banana,eggs,nuts,cow milk..etc might worsen the condition .

Take antihistaminic till, itch is relieved.
Under supervision of dermatologist ,take steroid in tappering dose for short period.
Apply mild steroid cream or tacrolimus oint on the lesions.

You may be improved.
I hope you got my answer.
