Default Bumps on my PWS?

I have had little bumps on my port wine stain for many years...
but lately they have gotten bad. My pws is very sensitive now and rough feeling.

I am VERY self consious about this....
Is there anything i can do to make them go away?

One of the reasons that laser is recommended is to reduce the instance of cobbles and blebs in PWS. That sounds like what you are describing. Have you looked into laser treatment for that?

Any changes, though, should be evaluated by a physician, so I would schedule an appointment.
