May be: Fordyce spots, which visible sebaceous(oil) glands that are present in most individuals particularly on the genitals. It's hard to say though without visualizing the lesions. Your best bet is to at least see your primary care doctor if not a dermatologist. ...Read more

Need to examine: It is not feasible to provide a meaningful opinion without taking additional history, physical examination and may be some tests. It would be prudent to see your doctor. In the meantime try to stop shaving your legs, if you do that, and see if that resolves the matter. ...Read more

Keratosis pilaris: 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. ...Read more

Newborn rash: 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. Here's a link for pic and info: www.Webmd.Com/skin-problems-and-treatments/picture-of-erythema-toxicum-neonatorum. ...Read more

A picture ; history: 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. ...Read more

Keratosis pilaris: 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. ...Read more
