Small red bumps in cluster.

Non Itchy.

I am not allergic to anything.

Skin on my upper arm feels bit warm. & it looks like deep skin issue.

The doctor has told me this is Keratosis Pilaris...a condition that is caused by too much Keratin in you body. It hardens and casues the bumps and casues a lot of redness wherever they accur. Consult a dermatologist for help in ridding your arms of this condition.
