Itchy skin red bumps
« on: March 05, 2012, 06:00:32 PM »
Ever since I was diagnosed, I constantly have these itchy skin red bumps on my chest and belly. My ID doesn't seem to be too concerned and prescribed me the cream. I am not on meds yet but applying the cream three times a day feel like taking the regime already. Besides, it itches like hell.

Any tips on how to prevent it? Perhaps the type of shower gel to use or others?

Does starting meds help reduce the symptoms at all?

Thanks.

Hi Jacken...  Im also not on meds...

Since Ive been diagnosed I notice the same in my face, but I also noticed there were moment I had more than other, for now I cannot relationated them with a situation in particular (I imagine it has to see with immune system work or alimentation, or tiring...).  It is similar as puberty bumps in my case.

I do with them what I used to to in those time, desinfecting them with alcohol night and morning...

Try to avoid touching them...
