A picture ; history: When is comes to rashes there is no substitute for seeing, either directly or a pic. How long has the rash been there? Is is a long term rash or did is come in the last few days?

It sounds like you may have had two small infected hair follicles - folliculitis that have at least partially resolved (as this can) on their own. I would avoid trying to "pop" them and use moist heat or simply monitor the remaining one. ...Read more
