I have these weird, itchy bumps on my arm (pics)?

I noticed these yesterday when I was scratching an itch on my arm and felt them. Could they be irritation bumps? I got them a day after I started wearing my winter coat, and I'm thinking maybe the material irritated the skin on my arm.

    It could be a allergy, hives or something worse like shingles, You should seek medical advice.

    They look like a larger form of the bumps I get. I have naturally bumpy skin so if anything scratches against it the small bumps swell up into many small red little blisters. They heal as soon as the scratching stops.

    If they don't heal when you stop scratching then it's probably an allergic reaction to the material in your coat.

    If they still persist then you should see a doctor/dermatologist.
