Odd pattern on legs, have dry skin, red bumps

I have noticed an odd pattern on the skin on my legs, I see this very odd giraffe pattern. I put on lotion daily for sensitive dry skin , but even if my legs feel smooth, I can still see this weird giraffe pattern. I have had this for as long as I can remember. I also have really small red bumps that seem to be on top of a majority a few of my hair follicles. I am a female aged 17 years old.
