Re: strange lumps all over my body

Do they remain as hard bumps or do they errupt and drain out? Also do you get more during your period or during times of high stress?

I ask because I suffer from a skin disease called Hidradenitis Suppurativa and the location of your bumps are common areas that this disease hits. It often goes mis-diagnosed because many doctors do not know about it. The lesions from the disease may be sebacious lumps or full on boil-like. The disease tends to get more active during times of stress and during a woman's period (if affects more women than men, but guys suffer too) You may want to research this disease and see if that may be what you have.
