Hello, and thank you for your medical question on e Health Forum.

It is very difficult to determine the cause of such bites without an examination.

But such lesions could be due to folliculitis, bacterial infection of the hair follicles on the skin.

You might consult your doctor or your dermatologist for a proper diagnosis and specific treatment.

I hope this helps.
