I have had an itchy arm with bumps for 3 mo. Ihave tried everything including going to the Dr. …Prescribed steroid cream and it helped for a short time. Only comes in the months of Aug. and Sept. and only on one arm. Recently moved to Arizona in NOv. and it has started in and won\’t stop…..driving me out of my mind. Any help would be appreciated.

    Unfortunately you do not mention the diagnosis your doctor reached with regards to this matter. You could be describing urticaria (hives), allergic contact dermatitis and so on. There are so many possible skin conditions that are itchy and could cause “bumps”. It would be advisable that you consult with a dermatologist who can manage this condition properly. If it related to an allergy, then you may need to follow up with an allergist. Ask your family doctor for a referral to a dermatologist.
