Thanks for writing in. There can be several causes leading to such deep holes in the skin. It will be difficult to assess exactly what these might be due to but you may find the information given useful.
The small deep hole as in your shoulder skin or back can be a sinus tract that usually develops in response to a deep-seated skin infection or acne. It is an abnormal channel in the body that opens into the environment on one end. A sinus tract typically leads from a focus of infection in deeper tissues to the skin surface. It may even discharge pus/ fluid on the skin surface.
Resembling sinus-tracts are ice pick scars that are atrophic scars remaining after acne. They are deep with a very narrow skin opening and extend into the dermis. The skin looks as if it has a small, deep "hole" in it. They develop after an infected cyst or other deep lesion causes tissue destruction during the healing process and results in a column like scar. Such scars can be treated with punch excision or punch grafting.
You should consult a dermatologist for a diagnosis, who may refer you to a surgeon if required for proper management.
