Dear I Have 10 Lumps in My Forearms - What Could it Be?,

These ten lumps could be many different things, such as bug bites, an allergic reaction or an infection. Without any information about the size of the lumps, the color, whether they itch or not, and whether they are draining or not, it is hard for TeenHealthFX to give you any specific thoughts about what it could be. But either way, it would be important for you to meet with a doctor who can examine the lumps and give you an accurate diagnosis, as well as any recommends about medical treatments if needed.

If you don't have a doctor and live in northern New Jersey, you can call the Adolescent/Young Adult Center for Health at 973-971-5199 for an appointment with an adolescent medicine specialist or contact your local teen health center. You can also contact your insurance company for a list of in-network providers.
