Hi there,
Thank you for your question.
I will be helping you out with your concerns.
The most likely cause of your bumpy skin is what is called as fordyce spots.
These spots are basically visible sebaceous glands that are present in most individuals, more prominently in some and not so prominent in others.
Other than being a cosmetic concern does not indicate a disease process.
Treatment is with vaporizing laser treatments such as CO2 laser.
I would recommend that you should consult a cosmetic dermatologist for further evaluation and treatment.
