Cellulitis: Painful bumps indicate inflammation, most likely infectious from skin bacteria. Put some Polysporin (bacitracin and polymyxin) ointment on them and take ibuprofen for a couple of days. You should also disk these with Epson salt. If no improvement in 2 days, see your doctor for a quick exam and assessment. You may need a course of antibiotic to treat.
