Commonly, small 1-2mm white bumps are usually milia, which are small cysts under the skin. Other while bumps include xanthelasma and syringomas. I would recommend that you see a dermatologist who will be able to evaluate these areas and treat them.

Yes: There are lotions/creams designed for use on the face available at pharmacies that are less likely to cause acne (the term is "noncomedogenic"). It is best to wet the skin with warm water before applying the cream so the moisture can be "trapped" by the cream. However, if the "dryness" doesn't improve, gets worse, or develops redness/pain, then see your physician to be sure it isn't another issue.
