What kind of bumps?? Are they red, raised, flat or what? Do they hurt or itch? Do they look like a pimple? Describe them and maybe someone can help you. It is quite possible to get pimples anywhere on your body including your back so it could be that if that is what they look/feel like.

The bumps are red like a pimple. They itch every once in a while not much tho. When you touch them it hurts like when you touch a pimple. So, could they just be pimples or could this be something else? How do I get rid of them? Can someone please help me.

Thanks

Are these pimples new? Are there a lot of them clustered in one area? Are there shooting pains from them? It really is hard to say without seeing them what they are. It could be a number of things, or it could be just pimples. If they are new, and there are more than just a few, you should see a doctor. I had that happen to me once, and it turned out to be shingles, which needs to be treated by a doctor. There are other possibilities too, such as hives from an allergic reaction, etc. Best to play it safe and see your doctor.

Since they seem to feel like pimples have someone take a look at them so they can tell you exactly what they look like. From there you should be able to determine if they are pimples or something else. If they are pimples use a mild soap and washcloth to clean your back and if you can reach them use an acne cream. If they don't look like pimples then they should be checked by the doc.
