Permanent Dry Skin/Small Bumps on Forearms/Elbows

On both my arms I have around 10cm of these tiny raised white bumps and a bit of dry skin around which has a sandpaper type feeling. It is not itchy or inflammed or painful in any way. But annoying because you can feel the bumps. The skin is slighty red around the areas, but not massively.
The bumps can come out of the skin when squeezed (like a pimple, but without a layer of skin over the top). But then they are formed again within a few hours/day. Its been there for around 6 years, doctors just keep giving me fatty cream, which doesnt work.
Has anyone had anything similar to this?
