Hi there,
A clinical examination is very important for determining the exact cause of your symptoms. One possibility is that it is acne keloidalis nuchae(AKN).Few other differentials are acneiform eruptions,folliculitis decalvans,hideradenitis supprativa,perifollculitis capitis etc. AKN includes suppression of the inflammation with antibiotics and steroid gels or intralesional steroid injections. Please consult a dermatologist for accurate diagnosis and treatment. I hope it helps. Take care and good luck!
