    Make sure they are clean. Use some savlon / antiseptic / similar. If it is persisting then go and get checked out.

    Is it hot to touch, more so than a similar place on your other arm?

    Is it red or inflamed?

    Those are the two main features of infection. Keep them covered, keep them clean and stop picking.
