    I didn't worry much about the 5 tiny bumps on the side of my left arm (about 5 inches away from my elbow). It itches by itself sometimes and sometimes, it only itches until I touch it. Its about the size of enlarged pores or a tiny pimple. They are all gathered in one spot; the size of a penny. They have been there for the past 2 months; or that's when I started noticing them. Does anyone know how to get rid of it?

    Have you seen your doctor or a dermatologist about these bumps? It would be best to determine what they are and what is causing them in order to get the proper treatment.
