Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Need to be clarified, which part of the skin on your body is experiencing the complaint? Is it all over my body? Do you experience other complaints, such as itching, fever, dry skin, peeling, swelling, watery nodules, festering, and so on? How long have you had this complaint?
The appearance of spots on the skin such as goosebumps is often caused by keratosis pilaris. This condition occurs when a protein in the outer skin called keratin builds up which causes blockages in the hair follicles. As a result, many small pimples will appear that make your skin look like it is chills. It is not known what exactly causes this keratin buildup. However, many experts say that this is related to genetic factors (hereditary) or certain skin conditions, for example atopic dermatitis or dry skin (xerosis). Frequently, keratosis pilaris will appear prominently in the area of the upper arm, thigh, cheek, or buttocks. However, this condition can also occur in other body parts.
If this condition is true for you, then you don't need to worry because usually this is not dangerous. To help improve the appearance of freckled skin, sometimes doctors simply give special creams, for example those that function to remove dead skin cells (such as those containing salicylic acid) or which serve to prevent blockages in hair follicles (such as those containing retinoids).
However, to ascertain whether it is true that you are experiencing keratosis pilaris, you need to see a doctor or dermatologist first. Because, many other conditions that can also have clinical appearance is very similar to keratosis pilaris, for example folliculitis, fungal infections, miliaria (prickly heat), scabies (scabies), contact dermatitis, seborrheic dermatitis, hypertrophic scars, and so on. Each of these conditions certainly has a different management.
In the meantime, you should not over-manipulate spots that appear, including by squeezing, rubbing, scratching, or forcibly removing them. Also avoid giving any treatment to these spots without doctor's advice. Always keep your skin moisturized, by using a moisturizer, use a water humidifier at your residence or workplace, avoiding the skin so that it is not exposed to direct sunlight, and drinking and eating lots of fruits. Take a shower with warm water and do not get used to taking a long bath so the skin does not become dry. Do not forget, until the use of clothes that are too tight and made from rough, so that the skin does not experience excessive irritation.
Hope this helps ...
