About a month and a half ago my back, chest, neck and arms broke out with little goose bumps. At first I thought they would just go away. But then I noticed that whenever my body temperature rises, they itch uncontrollably–not so much itch but feel prickly.
This happens if I exercise, feel anxious, get angry or simply get into a hot car. The bumps are very small and depending on the light you might not even see them, but they are definitely there. I have been to two doctors who both told me that it is keratosis pilairis, and from pictures it does look very similar.
However, everything I’ve read about keratosis says its benign. The itching only happens in the locations where I have bumps and during an attack I get no red marks or wheels or anything like that. As soon as I cool down it stops. Also, the areas where I have the bumps I can’t sweat. But I still sweat everywhere else normally.
I have three kids and it’s ruining my life. I can’t play catch with my son or mow the lawn. Fortunately, I don’t have a physical job but it’s really effecting everything else. Does this sound like anything anyone out there has had?
