Comments from related studies:
From this study (12 hours ago):
I have several areas of Lipoma (quite large bumps up to 6cm x 2cm in area) on my arms legs and torso. When pressed or rubbed gently an itchy rash appears on and around the bumps for up to an hour if the pressure is removed but can persist. The rash disappears spontainiously in time without treatment if the pressure is removed. However, areas that are under pressure for a long time e.g. back of thighs when sitting down require a soothing cream 'balneum +' or 'betnovate' to relieve the itch.
From this study (2 weeks ago):
I have had these symptoms for 6 weeks and recently had an endoscopy revealing a hiatus hernia. Tests are not finalised yet but my condition is not getting better despite being on the prantapozel.
