Default Raised bumps on Face

I realized Mr. Pickles had dry skin earlier this week. I gave him an oatmeal bath (oats in a cheesecloth), used some Aveeno oatmeal wash and add a few drops of olive oil to rinse water. I also put lanolin on ears and face a bit. I have also added a humidifier to the room he's in and he looks so much better! Today however I noticed these raised white bumps. I tried to lightly brush one off and he flinched so I'm not sure if this is just dry skin related or something else? I got a great picture of it so thought I'd post here to get thoughts.

The large spot to right of his eye and one above his eye are my concerns.

It looks like it could be a skin infection. If it doesn't clear up in the next day or two or if it gets any worse he's going to need to see a vet.
