A clinical examination is necessary for correct diagnosis and management of your condition. From your symptoms it is possible that it can be an irritated hair follicle. The other possibility however is of a cold sore. There may be pain, burning, tingling, or itching at the infection site before the sores appear. Then clusters of blisters erupt which break down. Recurrent clusters of bumps in the same area could be herpes simplex. They can be cultured for definitive diagnosis and treatment can be prescribed accordingly. Flesh colored bumps can also be seen in a condition called Molluscum contagiosum.It is a viral infection which causes appearance of flesh colored bumps on the skin. It is best to consult a dermatologist. This is merely an advice and not a substitute for clinical examination. Treatment will depend on the underlying cause. Keep me posted with more queries. Hope it helped.
Best wishes and regards!
