Here are some ...: I'm sure what you saw have been there for a long time although you just happened to notice them. Clinically, these tiny white dots are hyperactive sebaceous glands of hair follicles, which are harmless with no need to treat except their rare recurrent infection/abscess. Not taking a direct look may not diagnose correctly; so, see Doc timely for further doubt.
