Welcome to ehealthforum.
If you can distinctly see hair coming out of each bump that you describe, then possibility of furunculosis cannot be ruled out. Consider getting these examined by your doctor at the earliest. Avoid any self manipulation. Treatment as needed (based on examination and investigations results) would be started to help you to control the symptoms. Avoid use of harsh soap or perfumes in the area. Use loose cotton undergarments and avoid use of tight fitting clothes. Be in regular monitoring and follow-up with your treating doctor and report any new/abnormal symptoms immediately. Drink plenty of water. Take adequate rest. Maintain healthy diet and lifestyle.
Take care.
