Folliculitis: Small itchy red bumps that then develop a white head and appear in crops may be an infection of the hair follicles called folliculitis. Folliculitis is commonly caused by bacteria on the skin. Warm compresses may be applied to the rash but often it will resolve on it's own. Avoid shaving the affected region until the rash clears.
