Allergic in nature?: If you could upload photos it may be much easier to identify what you're talking about along with a bit more history as in how long you've had them, what triggers the itching....do they multiply? Do they diminish? Anywhere else on the body? There are also things called fibromas or neurofibromas that can look like what you're talking about. Write me at: www.healthtap.com/dr-saghafi

Not normal: This is not normal and if it bothers you enough, you need to see a dermatologist.
