Bicipitis

I have been training with dumbbells and doing exercises to gain weight for awhile.
But like a fool, I was not aware of the consequences of my actions and thought I would be fine without research.

Apparently, if you train one part of your body(I.e. biceps) but not the surrounding parts, it will lead to severe problems. As my training became more intense and I gradually increased the weight, my arm began to hurt during curls, this was very gradual over the course of a few weeks. About 10 min ago it hurt so much I had to stop, I noticed bumps across my arm, like if I had gotten slashed by a cat, they were long and in a set of 4 ish.

I googled it and apparently, this is common.
My biceps have become too strong for my arm, my tendons are inflamed and hurt like a female dog.
GG'd

Not sure why it's called Bicipitis if it's the tendons that become inflamed, /shrug

why would you concentrate on biceps? that doesn't really make your arms look bigger or stronger.

I did warn you...I told you to do one muscle grp, then the opposite one the next day.

I did do that.
I've been working biceps every other day.
Too much?

I am reading that this is EXTREMELY common in people like me, who are starting out.
Blerrggghh
Any advice? should I just take anti inflammatory medicine and not work the biceps for awhile?
I don't think I have any tear or rupturing...
