What causes itchy bumps on the skin?

Hi. I have been experiencing itchy bumps behind my ears for a few weeks now and recently it feels they have been spreading on various parts of my scalp now. Also, there are a few itchy bumps on my face, stomach, legs/feet, and arms. I don t know what the cause could be at all

Hi,

According to your complaints it seems to be an eczematous rash. I would recommend you to apply topical steroid like cortisone cream on the affected area twice daily and take anti-histamine like tablet cetirizine 10 mg twice daily for 10 days.

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

Regards,
Dr. Asmeet Kaur Sawhney, Dermatologist
