    Exciting News for WebMD Members!

    We've been busy behind the scenes building new message boards for you. You'll have new and easier ways to find messages, connect with others, and share your stories.

    And, this will all be available on your smartphone or other mobile device!

    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going? Save posts you want to continue (this includes your member profile story), so that you can re-post them in the new message boards.

    Keep an eye here and on your email inbox, we'll be back in touch soon to give you all the information you need!

    Yours in health,

    Skin looks like constant goose bumps
    bird_nerd posted:

    Since moving to a tropical country, i've started to develop small areas that look like they have perpetual goosebumps. They are not red or itchy, nor are they very rough to the touch. Gradually the little patches have enlarged and connected to cover all of my upper arms and shoulders.
    I don't know if this is due to a tropical fungus or diet deficiency. Please help with a diagnosis and how to get rid of this. i've had this for about 5 years.
