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.
