Small red bumps on feet and ankles, scar like appearance, treatment?

I have small red bumps on my feet and ankles and very few on my lower leg. they do not itch and they do not hurt. after a while the bumps get lighter and look like scars. I have had them for years now and they just look bad. creams will not help. Can you give me some ideas on what it could be.
