Thanks for writing to us.
From the description it seems, you could be having lesions of keratosis pilaris. KP is usually seen in people with extremely dry skin. These usually respond well to emollients and topical salicylic acid or lactic acid preparations. Please meet a dermatologist nearby for prescription.
