User avatar Unfortunately, I don't think I'll be able to help you much over the internet. The possible causes of such red bumps are quite extensive, including eczema, contact dermatitis, and keratosis pilaris.

I would recommend you see your doctor for a direct examination and treatment recommendation.

Best wishes.
