Dry skin?: From your description, the problem appears to be what is called keratosis pilaris. Skin tags have a stem. I would suggest that you try applying a moisturizer on your body within 3 mins after bathing and perhaps another application with or without bathing 12 hrs later and see if you can see improvement after about a week. If not, consult a dermatologist. Avoid scented or anti-bacterial soap. ...Read more
What causes an itchy rash with little bumps on top of my feet and redness on lower legs? Also bumps are not itching anymore, now they are dry bumps.
Allergic reaction: Usually rashes on the top of your feet are casued by some type of allergic reaction or contact dermatits.

Your socks or shoes could be creating the rash on your feet more so if they got wet while wearing them or if you have changed soaps or detergents. If the rash persists or returns get examined by a doctor. ...Read more

I have small red itchy bumps on both my shoulders. They're extremely itchy and red and sore. I'm so confused. I'm a female teen?
Pic worth 1000 words: There's no substitute for seeing a rash. Hard to tell from your brief description what it might be. Acne is common on shoulders but isn't usually very itchy. Could be 'ringworm' which is a skin fungus (tinea corporis), although that doesn't usually get sore. If they've been scratched a lot they might have become infected, which could cause pain. A medical exam would be the best way to know cause. ...Read more
