Small Itchy Bumps On Left Arm
Many answers: You need to check with your doctor and dermatologist who would likely want to know how long these bumps have been present, medications being taken, and other associated symptoms, a skin biopsy may also be needed.
Doctor can evaluate: Rashes are very difficult to describe in words, so an exam by a primary care doctor and/or a dermatologist is helpful, when the rash is present. Sometimes rashes occur from bug bites, fungus/yeast, reactions with chemicals, irritants, plants, allergens, etc... Itching makes it more likely an allergic rash or bug bites. If one cannot go to the doctor, a video consult on HealthTap PRIME may help.
Sun or allergy?: Some people get reactions like this whenever they are in the sun too long. Try to avoid direct sun, wear loose shirts with sleeves. For itching, try Cortizone 10 or similar cream. Also can take oral Benadryl (diphenhydramine) for the itch. Also, could it be your sunscreen? Some people have allergic reactions to sunscreens. Try switching brands. Good luck!

Many causes: If it lasts for less than a couple of weeks, then I won't pay much attention to it. But if it gets painful, it may be from shingles and you need to see your doctor ASAP to get started on an anti-viral drug to reduce potential complications. Suspect shingles if the rash does not extend beyond the mid-line of the body.
Keratosis Pilaris: It sounds like you have a condition called keratosis pilaris. This causes tiny, rough prickly bumps to form on the backs of the arms, the thighs, the buttocks and occasionally on the face. A mild exfoliating skin cream with 12% ammonium lactate used once to twice a day will smooth these areas out nicely. If you have itch, a mild cortisone cream from your doctor can help.

Bug bites.: What you are describing could be bug bites of some type due to the nonspecific location. Because of the tropical climate, it could be any number of arthropods. You may want to see a physician for treatment since the number is so high extending over a fairly large body surface area. Additionally, watch for any signs of infection--fevers, night sweats or redness and enlargement of the actual bumps.

Skin tags usually occur in areas where there is increased friction (armpits, neck, groin/inner thigh regions). Treatment with excision of lesions with scissors. Larger lesions may require suturing.
