Painful bumps on right leg. Reason, how to get relief?

recently I ve had a small outbreak of colorless bumps on my right leg...They don t hurt unless I touch them or when I take a shower and I m washing my leg....I noticed them about 2 weeks ago I thought they d disappeared since I wasn t feeling any pain...But I just got out the shower and dried my leg and there was a horrible pain in the same spot and this time it was worse than anytime before. Any ideas?

Hi and welcome to HCM

You could apply over the counter antiseptics for a couple of days after bath, to see if the lesion gets any better. You need to consult a dermatologist for systemic antibiotics if the number of lesions increases.
Usually such minor infections are self limiting and subside in 7-10 days. Avoid touching the area with bare fingers to avoid any infection. The small scars will also heal on their own without any special treatment.

I do hope that you have found something helpful and informative and I will be glad to answer any further query.
Take care.
