- Question: I was taking creatine for about a month. Started getting a bunch of small bumps on left arm going like down my veins and it stop when it get to my hand. Doesn't seem like acne, but I stopped taking creatine about 15 days ago but bumps haven't gone away yet. What could it be?
Unfortunately this is not a common symptom or side effect that I have encountered or researched that goes along with taking creatine. My thought is that these bumps are inadvertently caused because of the weight gain, water retention and protein synthesis. The protein is particular may be the culprit of these bumps. Unfortunately I cannot say for certain – thus I suggest you consider seeking consultation with a physician in your local area if these bumps persist. Best skin care wishes.
