The condition described appears to be multiple papules or macular lesions and these can be caused by various conditions including - milia, stucco keratosis, keratoacanthoma or xanthogranulomas.

The exact diagnosis can be confirmed with a physical examination only.

Hence it would be recommended to consult a dermatologist at the earliest.

I hope this helps.
