    Bumps on skin

    So my boyfriend has had a history with excema but lately he’s been getting this weird bumps all over his body. Most of them look like mosquito bites and he’ll get like 1 or two in random spots and then he’ll have another area with like 5-6 and they’ll get really swollen. So it looks like swollen mosquito bumps but I know it can be mosquito because it just looks insane. Any suggestions ? In the images I applied calamine lotion so that’s why it’s pink. Which really helps with swelling and usually helps most of it go away.

    Have you tried talking to a doctor, usually they give out free special cream to make bumps go away.

    In an eczematous patient, an insect bite can really swell much as you are describing. A clue to it being an insect bite in the first place, is if the lesions are closely placed, and more in exposed areas like forearms and legs. As such local steroids do help, and also use of systemic antihistamines, for sometime.
    Otherwise, a physician’s opinion should be sought, for direct inspection.
    Note: I could not spot the photos you alluded to.
