    Default White bumps on shoulders/back of arms/back

    I did a search of this and I found "milia", which I'm familiar with, I think, but don't think this what I have. This just started happening a few months ago. Sort of like tiny white heads that are like hardened sebum or white cell "pearls" that can, at times, be extracted. But they don't get infected often and mostly just sit there.

    Is the answer I need to get a scrub brush and exfoliate there?

    Would salicylic acid help?

    Toleraine Soothing Light Facial Fluid for moisturizer. I don't use a special cleanser. Clonidine daily; klonopin sometimes.
    BEST and CURRENT TREATMENT I use: Low-Level Red Light Therapy LED array.
    Please feel free to PM me with your low-level red light therapy (LLRLT) questions. I'm happy to help if I can.

    A form of keratosis pilaris perhaps?
