Small goosebumps on chest and shoulders

I have these small bumps that resemble goosebumps on my upper chest and upper arms.  They don't hurt, don't itch, and they are skin colored.  They are not everywhere...just some spots.  My girlfriend (MSc.) and mom (RN) say they are blocked pores...but I am worried anyway.  I perspire alot...so that might be the reason.  Could you please give me some idea of what this is?  And whether or not I should see a doctor?  Thanks.

They do indeed sound like blocked pores (folliculitis.)  There may not be much you can or even need to do about this.  If you want more certainty about the diagnosis, you should see a doctor.  Butn I wouldn't worry.  Surrounding yourself with health personnel has its benefits . . .

Best.
