I have tiny pimple like bumps on my arm and legs. They don't itch or bother me. When i scratch them they turn white. what could they be?

Keratosis pilaris

Itch
These are more of a cosmetic issue than anything serious. Some people hate them and use a loofa to scrape them off of the backs of their arms. They happen more in kids and teens and less in adults. You might try some low-potency hydrocortisone cream to see if that might smooth out these little bumps on the skin.

I'm just getting over a sty but I now have hard pimple like bumps on my stomach, hips, and legs. They do not itch but some are tender.

The sty of the eyelid usually resolves with hot compresses. As for the unrelated bumps elsewhere, I believe they be keratosis pilaris and may feel better with moisturizing lotion & creams, and sometimes better with exfoliation lotions. However, to be certain, an examination of your skin would be necessary. A family doctor may be all that is necessary, or if particularly stubborn, a dermatologist.

My baby has red pimple like bumps on her arm and leg, they look almost like bug bites. They just appear. what could they be?

Newborn rash

Dermatitis
If your baby is a newborn, then it's most likely the common newborn rash erythema toxicum. The rash should clear on its own. No treatment is needed. However, there are similar looking rashes that do need medical attention, so check with your baby's doctor.

32mth & 13mth old have small pimple like bumps on arms/legs and a couple on back. Not many at all. Could this be prickly hear? No temp.

A picture & history

Mollus
When is comes to rashes there is no substitute for seeing, either directly or a pic. How long has the rash been there? Is is a long term rash or did is come in the last few days? Is the rash itchy? Could these be bug bites? I would recommend seeing your pediatrician if this rash doesn't go away in a few days or becomes worse. If is looks like this pic it is a form of warts.

What do little white bumps that look like white head pimples on my leg mean?

See a dermatologist

Pimples
It is difficult to make a proper diagnosis since I am not there to see the condition. I recommend seeing a dermatologist so that they can make a proper diagnosis and give you something to get rid of the condition or relieve symptoms.

I have tiny bumps on my legs they are like tiny pimples. they don't itch or hurt i think they are blocked hair follicles.?

Keratosis pilaris

Itching
It sounds like it might be keratosis pilaris, which is commonly referred to as "chicken skin". It is harmless but can be a cosmetic concern. It most often occurs on the thighs and back of the upper arms. The best treatment is exfoliation on a regular basis. There are some prescription creams that will exfoliate and smooth the skin while maintaining hydration. Best to check with your doctor.

My 5 year old daughter has red bumps with a white center, kind of looks like a pimple, all over her legs. what could these be?

Folliculitis

Pimples
Folliculitis is a very common, benign skin disorder that looks like scattered pinpoint red bumps on the skin. Antibacterial washes such as benzoyl peroxide are often used to treat folliculitis, and resistant cases may need antibiotic pills to clear the skin.
