Without examination it is difficult confirming a diagnosis but it can be sebaceous hyperplasia or epidermal inclusion cysts.Epidermal inclusion cysts are flesh colored ,firm nodules with a central punctum and are usually found on the face of adults.Sevaceous hyperplasis is benign enlargement of the sebaceous glands surrounding a follicle and often with a central dent.
I sincerely suggest you to discuss these possibilities with your dermatologist as treatment is diagnosis specific.

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