Brief Answer:
Could just be pimples

Detailed Answer:
Hello and welcome to Ask A Doctor service.

I have reviewed your query and here is my advice.

These seem to be pimples from dry skin. Kindly upload a photo so that I am better able to help.

Meanwhile I would suggest that you apply some coconut oil for dry skin.

Brief Answer:
These seem to be mosquitoe bites only

Detailed Answer:
Hi again

These seem to be mosquito bites. Use mosquito repellents regularly as many mosquito borne illnesses are going around. Or it could be an allergy.

Can apply some betnovate cream on them to minimize itching. Ataeax can also bring down itching but also could cause drowsiness.
