Hi, Ihave an allergy to dustmites. I dont know if its related to what I am experiencing. I have tiny pimples that appear on my arm, sometimes it looks like mosquito bites but its not. I only get them on my arm. Please advise as to what it could be.

Dear Jen
It is difficult to say without seeing the lesions. If it itches and comes and goes, it probably is allergy related. If it itches but stays for a week or so it may be insect or parasite bites, if it makes blisters it usually indicates eczema.
