Bumps on face

I have developed some small skin/flesh colored bumps on my face. Mostly on my cheeks, but there are some everywhere. They are not itchy, or very noticalbe unless you are close up or in a room with good lighting.  They are not pimples and therefore can not be squeezed. How do i get rid of them? I've only had them for about a week but i have been reading about similar problems and i cannot figure out what to do. Help!

Hello,
They can be whiteheads or small hair follicles. Cleanse the area thoroughly and apply a good mild exfoliating scrub on that.Also use an antibacterial soap or mild soap like dove.Avoid any kind of cosmetics. Topical antibiotics such as mupirocin or neomycin containing ointment are also useful.In case the symptoms persist then oral antibiotics may be needed.Pls consult a dermatologist in that case.

Hope it helps.Take care and pls do keep me posted on how you are doing or if you have any additional doubts.Kind regards.
