the bumps are small not really red. they really dont itch. sometimes it feels dry and i rub it. i washed dishes at my work and the next day they appeared. it wasnt my first time washing dishes there and they use dawn i use that 2 normally. now i have some on my other hand and other arm. some are like pimples byt not the look of a pimple they do not look like they are going to form a whitehead or get bigger. others are flat against my skin.
