Most commonly acne causes pimple-like bumps on the skin due to bacteria. However, viral infections like molluscum contagiosum, herpes and chickenpox can cause similar skin bumps.
In most cases, bumps go away with little to no treatment.
Tiny bumps (milia) can be treated by using retinoid creams, medicated ointments, skin peels, steam machines to open the pores, and regular facial exfoliating and cleansing. It is also important not to pick, poke, or irritate the skin.
Chickenpox, scabies, impetigo and molluscum contagiosum all cause itchy, small bumps on the skin. Seek medical attention in order to find the exact cause.
Bumps hurt depending on their cause. The body's immune system tries to fight off a threat on the skin through redness, inflammation and itchiness which often causes pain to the patient.
