Thank you for all the information,
It can be due to keratosis pilaris.
Keratosis can be caused by plugging of hair follicles.
Dryness of skin can cause it.
You can try to keep the skin moist.
Moisturizing creams can be used.

Please do not use soap as it may exacerbate the dryness.

Atopic Eczema can be associated.

If you do not feel any improvement, I would suggest to take an examination by dermatologist.
I hope this information helps.
