Papules: It really sounds as if you have two from us. I cannot envision what are the bumps on the roof of the mouth would relate to the bumps on your skin. But there are such conditions, they just need to be evaluated personally. The most important asset of a dermatologist is his/her eyes, so you need to have this rash evaluated.

Baby rash: Rashes in children can have many causes. If it feels dry and itchy, it could indicate contact dermatitis. If, they are filled with fluids, it could indicate infection etiology. Rashes need always to be checked by your primary care doctor to help make the diagnosis.

Little bumps I have little bumps on my legs where I shaved. They almost look like giant pimples. They're red, and painful. After a while, they pop, swelling goes down, and scab over. Then after that ones gone, I get another one. What are they?

Very: Very difficult to answer without a clinical examination so I would see a dermatologist. Perhaps they are seborrheic keratoses, warts, molluscum, folliculitis (bacterial spread from shaving), or other possibilities. See a picture of these conditions at the link below. I hope that helps.
