Arrow Bumps/acne On Legs

i have had this weird acne/bumps thing on my legs, thighs as long as i can remember. its just a rough feeling on my legs and is just kind of embarrasing in intimate situations. a while ago my dr prescribed me with clindymiacin. didnt really do much. its harmless i know, but im sure other people have the same thing i do. its almost like acne on my lower half. anyone have this?? and gotten rid of it???? its almost embarassing for me to ask my dr again. please help

Re: Bumps/acne On Legs

are they ingrown hairs maybe? i have this too.. i have yet to get rid of them, but i did buy one of those buff sponges (they're white and rough in the shape of a teardrop) and used it to exfoliate my legs. i used it consistently for about a week, and i noticed that it helped a lot. i just wish i had more time in the shower in the mornings to continue =P let me know if it helps you out.

Re: Bumps/acne On Legs

I get bumps on my legs / back of my arms when my skin gets dry. It's sort of like rough patches with little bumps. Ugh!

A friend told me about a new moisturiser by Neutrogena that is specifically for bumps (rough patches with bumps). I've been using it for about 2 months and it's really helped.

I don't know if yours are also due to dry skin and weird exfoliation (or lack thereof) like mine ... but it might be worth trying out the Neutrogena stuff as it's really inexpensive.

Hope this helps
