What is this rash on his back?

I have an almost 15 month old foster son that I have had for 2 months... and this past week or so I've noticed something on his back. I can't see it, but I can feel it. It's like a bunch of tiny bumps, like it feels really dry. The rest of his body is baby soft.. but his back seems like it's getting worse. And it's mainly on the sides of his back, not so much his spine. I can take him to the doctors, but it doesn't seem to bother him and I can't visually SEE anything.

  • It could be dry skin due to eczema. Using lotion after bath and at least twice a day should help.
