Leave them alone...: Keep the razed affected area clean and dry, and leave bumps alone. But you may lightly apply topical 1% Hydrocortisone cream to help ease the discomfort and shorten the course of healing, which is usually about 5-10 days. If in doubt or not evolving as expected, see doctor timely. Besides, practicing healthy lifestyle without overindulgence and obsession will benefit anyone. Best wish ...
