Hello,
Without examination, confirmation of a diagnosis is tough but it can be normal anatomical structures like Fordyce posts, folliculitis, cysts, molluscum contagiosum(multiple, small, dome-shaped papules, often with a central depression or plug), benign growths like angiokeratomas or genital warts(caused by HPV infection).

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.

It is very difficult to precisely confirm a diagnosis without examination and investigations and the answer is based on the medical information provided. For exact diagnosis, you are requested to consult your doctor. I sincerely hope that helps. Take care and please do keep me posted on how you are doing.

Hello,
If the bumps are found close to the hair follicles or on the area where hair follicles are abundant, folliculitis needs to be ruled out as irritated hair follciles have hair arising from the bumps. Keep the area clean and apply some topical antiseptics. Also wear loose-fitting cotton clothing and use an antibacterial soap or mild soap like dove. Avoid any kind of cosmetics. Topical antibiotics such as mupirocin or Neosporin can be applied but if the symptoms are severe then get an evaluation done from a dermatologist.
