What are these red bumps on the back of my ankles ?

Hi, I am 18 years old and in the past two years I have had little tiny red bumps around my lower calves/back of ankles. They don t hurt, they don t itch, they are just redder than the rest of my skin and feels a little rougher when I touch it. I don t think it s necessarily a big deal, but I like my legs to be smooth and soft (and preferably all the same color! haha) I thought they were little pimple-like bumps and have tried to pop them once in a while (bad, I know) but there s nothing inside, it s more like my skin is just raised at each of the bumps. Although they are very small, they are quite noticeable if you get close enough. Any suggestions about what to do? Also, I get more pimple-like bumps on my legs. I assume they are ingrown hairs. But I have an urge to always pop pimples so I always find myself popping the pus out of them. They don t necessarily hurt but once I have popped them, they scab over and they are even more noticeable than before! Any way to reduce the appearance of these?

It must be some allergy on your legs. But do not worry. Wash your legs with plain water and take this Homeopathic medication Silicea 30, four times a day for a week.
