They may be ingrown hairs from shaving irritation. Use a cream shave next time you shave your legs and make sure you change your razor often.

A common cause of painless red spots on your lower legs is a skin condition called keratosis pilaris. It is caused by plugs of keratin in hair follicles. It usually gets better with age. You can treat it with moisturizing lotions. It is a condition that tends to run in families.
