Hi You seem to be having keratosis pilaris. This condition which is usually recurring occurs over arms shoulders upper back. Use a moisturiser cream twice a day. use a salicylic acid body wash twice a day. please contact a dermatologist who can prescribe the appropriate creams to exfoliation of the skin. however the condition may come back if you stop using creams
