Hello,
Without examination, confirmation of a diagnosis is tough but it can be contact dermatitis, folliculitis, cysts ,molluscum contagiosum(multiple, small, dome-shaped papules, often with a central depression or plug) orherpes blisters(caused by herpes virus).

Apply warm compresses, Neosporin ointment and calamine lotion and avoid messing with it.You  can take anti-inflammatory pain killers like ibuprofen or acetaminophen. If the lumps persist then it will be best to get it evaluated from a dermatologist. I sincerely hope that helps. Take care and please do keep me posted on how you are doing.
