Patient: Hello. I recently have had small bumps come up on my back. They don’t itch or anything like that no puss or soreness. They go across the whole top part of my back. they came out of nowhere and they won’t seem to go away. I’m guessing it was some type of allergic reaction but I’m worried because if it’s contagious in someway and my husband somehow get it.
