You should consult a dermatologist for a clear diagnosis. A condition like keratosis pilaris might be the cause for these red bumps and excessive irritation. Dermatological diseases are spesific and treatment should be directed at the particular disease/condition. Therefore, it is beneficial to have the correct diagnosis made.
