Keratosis pilaris: The small itchy white spots may be keratosis pilaris which is a benign skin disease. Try using 14percent Lactic Acid if you can buy it over the counter, otherwise see a dermatologist.

Sudden small orangy/brown patches have appeared on my arm, look like tea stains, not itchy or dry, could it be from being in the sun too much?
