Folliculitis: Most probably ingrown hairs or inflamed hair follicles. Try using a mildly abrasive sponge, brush or washcloth to scrub these areas. Pay particular attention to this after you shave. You may want to avoid shaving until they resolve. Watch for painful red bumps as they may get infected. Avoid hot tubs or other conditions that can introduce bacteria into freshly shaved skin follicles.
