I think those bumps are of Keratosis Pilaris (KP's)- follicular papules with a central rough keratotic core. Sometimes there is also a coiled hair trapped inside the keratin plug. KP's may be skin colored or slightly red in appearance and impart a rough texture to the skin. KP's are more common and more numerous in those who are atopics and have a dry skin
I suggest that you use an Ammonium Lactate based moisturizer Or a Urea based moisturizer to help exfoliate the keratin.
In addition I ususlly suggest my patients to take an oral Vitamin A supplement (Retinyl palmitate 50000IU) once a day for 2-3 months to help normalize keratinization.
