These lesions could be of colloid millium and the best treatment option would be to get them extracted by a dermatologist.

However, if you could upload an image of the concerned area, it would be easier for me to confirm the possibility. You can use this site's uploader to post a good quality picture of the affected areas.

Hope that answers your query. Take care.
