In brief: Find the cause.

One calcium deposit is pretty common - but multiple? The real question is, what are these deposits doing there? Either existing skin structures have calcified, or there is an excess of calcium in your blood that is depositing in the skin.
Either way, you need to find the cause. This could be a significant problem; see your doctor and get to the bottom of it.

Could be a cyst. Surgical excision is the approach.
