Post New here with question

I am posting here hoping someone can help me out. Since I was a child, I've developed small skin colored bumps after being exposed to the sun. I get them mainly on my elbows and occasionaly on the back of my hands, they are very itchy, and I seem to get more if I itch them. I have looked on websites to find out information, but I come up empty handed. What I have looks nothing like any of the photos I have come across. Has anyone else heard of this or experience it? Any insight would be appreciated.

I might be way off,but you might want to check out eczema,(non-contagious skin inflammation and scaly patches)there is a type of eczema that looks like small bumps, is itchy and takes along time to dry up.A dermatologist will be able to tell you what is going on,hopefully with just a simple skin scraping.Go to a dermatologist,they will most likely be able to diagnose this for you,but don't try to treat yourself until you at least have a idea of what this is,you could make it worse with the wrong treatment.Good luck!!!
