I am a female 18 years old, 6 feet and I weigh around 165 lbs. I have got painful, itchy, cluster of bumps. It started on the side of my face and has spread on arms and hands. Corners of mouth are cracked also. I have not taken any medications yet. Please help.



Welcome to

  • My advise is that you should consult a doctor in person immediately.
  • There is no point in waiting, as the lesions have already spread to your arms and hands.
  • And it is good that you did not take self medication.
  • It does more harm than good.

Hope this helps.
