What are the small lumps near my vein in the wrist?

Hi. Next to v small spot of contact dermatitis on my wrist I now have three very small but distinct lumps in a triangle around a vein.. They are not red. They look like lumps you get when stung by a nettle tho a bit bigger. They are not sore or itchy. any ideas? Thanks

Hi,

It seems to be an insect bite hypersensitivity reaction. I would recommend you to take antihistamine like tablet Cetirizine and apply Cortisone cream on the affected area.

Take care. Hope I have answered your question. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
Dr. Asmeet Kaur Sawhney, Dermatologist
