Bumps on forearm, filled with clear fluid, no itching, recurring. Stress related?

I have had bumps on my forearm just below the elbow joint that are clear, and filled with clear fluid. This is the only location.They dry out and disappear after a week or so but never completely go away. they do not itch , and when I exercise regularly they seem to go away a bit. Possibly stress related? It has been happening for about 4 months....

Dermatologist 's  Response
Thanks for the query,

Stress related bumps are mainly related to herpes.

However these lesions are associated with other symptoms,

Mainly itch is present.

Asymptomatic blister may be seen in conditions like as epidermolysis bullosa acquisita.

A biopsy would be needed to confirm it.

You can use a mild oral steroid paste like fluticasone.

This will give you relief.

Please meet a dermatologist for exact diagnosis.

Let me know if you have any other doubt.
