Bumps like those that you describe are frequently diagnosed as furuncles (inflammation of hair follicle) or inflamed atheromas (inflammation of a sebaceous gland). You can see a dermatologist for diagnosis and treatment options, such as applying an antibiotic balsam to the affected area or surgical intervention (incision), for example.
