Differentials for this will be a folliculitis .Folliculitis usually involves the hair follicles and they appear as little red bumps .It is caused by the bacteria Staphylococcus aureus. As a bacterial infection, this is contagious. Another differential will be cherry angiomas. They are vascular reactions that may appear in certain areas of the body. They also appear as red bumps .These are benign and noninfectious. However,cherry angiomas usually affect persons greater than 40 years of age.
