Could be molluscum: Molluscum contagiosum is a viral illness that develops small, raised, flesh colored, umbilicated (depressed center) lesoin. These tend to fade after a while. If in a cosmetically unappealing area, cryoablation with the use of liquid nitrogen is anoption. These could also be areas of folliculitis but that would generally be sore when pressed.
