It seems...: Seems you may had either boils or insect bites, but it is very difficult to tell precisely without looking at them. For now, use warm compresses over them for about 15 minutes 3 times a day. If you notice redness, pus, painful and tender area, fever or chills you need to go to the nearest urgent care or see your doctor for immediate evaluation and antibiotic treatment.
