These may be allergy bumps, my daughter gets those type of bumps
either on her forearm, back of her knee or on her stomach. Back of
the knee is well known for a spot for allergy. None of the doctors knew what
it was - it took along time for them to go away - some doctors wanted to burn
them off with liquid nitrogen! I figured it out - it was an allergy to soya. She
is intolerant and when she has too much in her body a bump would appear, cut her soya
totally out of her diet and they disappeared! Doctors were clueless to this - they weren't
itchy at all - and they did just go away.
Is there any other symptoms - mood changes, irritability, headaches, stomach aches, leg pain
