Pinpricks on feet and legs

for a while now, i've been experiencing tiny pinprick like dots on my lower legs, it looked like shaving rash so I ignored it.
For a while now, there has been a concentration of these dots spreading out from the big toe on both feet, there is also a concentration on the inner ankle.

The 'rash' is not at all painful, and is very very VERY occasionally itchy and sometimes the skin around that area is slighty dry, but nothing bothersome.

There are no other symptoms coupled with this, no headaches, nausia, I am perfectly healthy, but these little pinprick dots are very ugly and do make me worry sometimes.

I am a student and live in university halls of residence, I don't know if that's relevant and believe the rash on my lower legs began before I attended University

Does anyone have any ideas regarding what this could be?
