On the back of arms and legs, follicular white papules can become more prominent as the surface of the skin is removed from scratching and making the bumps more exposed. See derm to be sure. ...Read more

Hard to say about the other, but oral warts are rare, so it's probably something else. If you're sure it's new or abnormal, see your doctor or dentist.
