Hi there,
These seem to be bumps due to bikini shaving. If these bumps do not seem to be infected you can treat the condition at home .Try massaging the pubic area with a warm washcloth. The circular motions can help release the ingrown hair from the follicle. Inflammation can be decreased with the use of hydrocortisone cream applied 2 times a day for 2-3 days. If the symptoms are severe and persistent seek the opinion of a dermatologist. Treatment will be specific based on the cause. I hope it helps.
Best wishes and regards!
