A 24-year-old female is scheduled for a consultation and body therapy treatment. During her consultation, you find out that she made her appointment today because she is concerned about some red, pustule bumps located on the outer section of her upper arm. In addition, she also expresses her concerns with some small bumps that are starting to form on her upper thighs.
