I am worried that I may have a skin disease and or condition causing multiple bumps itchy on my buttock etc causing scars. Please help me.

GetToThRootOfProblem: I see a lot of that and it's usually a form of scattered folliculitis (inflammation of hair roots) that can be helped within a few weeks with once or twice daily shower with an ant-bacterial soap and a good scrub. It's not magic, however, and if the bumps don't go away then you'll need to see a dermatologist for an in-depth exam and maybe tests or a trial of a topical or oral medication...or both. ...Read more

I stubbed my toe under a door a long time ago and there was a scrape that turned into a scar that's now turned into an itchy pea sized bump.

Need to examine: It is not feasible to provide a meaningful opinion without taking additional history, and physical examination. The pea sized lump may be hypertrophic scar/keloid or it may be due to formation of an inclusion cyst. If it is troublesome, you should see your doctor or a podiatrist.
For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Drink enough water daily, so that your urine is mostly colorless. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form.
Practice safe sex, if you have sex.
Get HPV vaccine, if you are under 27 years of age. ...Read more

These bumps look like mosquito bites, but aren't itchy and they're all around my 6 year olds face?

May be bites: Mosquito bites don't have to itch, this is the season for bites, and whether they itch or not depends on an individual's reaction to the mosquito saliva that is injected when they bite you.
