It is hard to say what the bumps are without seeing them. A chronic inflammation of the skin glands in the area is one possible diagnosis. If the bumps bleed from time to time, especially after defecation, then hemorrhoids might be suspected. If the bumps do not bleed, the inflammation can be caused by many reasons including even friction. If no reason can be determined you might want to try over the counter anti-inflammatory cream (containing aloe, for example or another agent). The final diagnosis can be determined for sure only with a biopsy.
