    Maybe just ingrown hair bumps? Still go to a doctor and see

    Could just be folliculitis, but I'd get them checked out if I were you.  You could either see your GP, or if you're in the UK, you could go to a genitourinary medicine (GUM) clinic - google "GUM clinic near me" for details.

    If you could update this thread and tell us what the doctors say, it would be appreciated.  Good luck.

    Julianne, may you please let me know what this ended up being and if they spread? I have the same bumps.
