May not be acne: Bumps on the face that hurt may be deeper-than-average acne bumps. A dermatologist can help treat them. If they are not acne, and don't come to the surface and break open to drain themselves, then the dermatologist will also be very helpful. Sometimes the doctor can open a bump to see what is inside.

See a dermatologist: It is difficult to make a proper diagnosis since I am not there to see the condition. I recommend seeing a dermatologist so that they can make a proper diagnosis and give you something to get rid of the condition or relieve symptoms.

Scalp?: If on the scalp, they're probably sebaceous cysts. If on the forehead, could be acne or warts. See your doctor to get it taken care of.

Without: visualizing these lesions and taking a history - there is no way for us to diagnose them.
