I'm curious to know what kind of skin disorder causes the following symptoms as I've seen on someone:

- blue-black, oval-shaped lesions, about 1 inch in length. I found about 10–15 of them on each inner thigh. Some of them appeared to be covered with scar tissue. Some of these lesions were also found on the person's arm.

- All over the back and arms, I found tiny white bumps, also oval shaped. They weren't filled with any kind of liquid, though. They seemed to be simply raised areas of the skin, as though someone had spread grains of rice directly underneath the person's skin.

- The individual's genital area had no lesions or bumps whatsoever. Their face and lips were also untouched.

I'm hoping someone could fill me in with the information! Thanks :)
