Hi Jamie,

These could be due to a mite infection known as scabies. However, in dermatology diagnosis can only be made when the skin has been properly examined. I would advise you to visit a dermatologist for the same. If it is scabies, it can be treated with single application of 5 percent permethrin cream. Hope that answers your query. Take care.
