My son has small non colored bumps all down his arms mainly but visible on entire body? Only really bad every now and then and itches them some?

In brief: Keratosis pilaris

Is likely. It is caused by a thicker layer of the skin that is crunchier(keratinized).
It is a skin type rather than a disease. 60% of people have it. Exfoliation and emollients can help with the itching.
