I have small red bumps on my vagina. I thought it was from shaving but Im not so sure that's the case anymore. What could they be?

Skin irritation

There are many causes of bumps on the skin outside your vagina - including having a reaction to shaving (the hair follicles become inflamed) Other causes can be of more concern, so if it isn't better soon, you might want to have it looked at.

I have small red bumps in pubic hair area. It mainly shows up after I shave, and it itches. I (stupidly) left it alone and now I am wondering what this is.

Likely irritation

Steroids
The base of the hair follicles may simply be reacting to your choise of shaving lubricant or soap.If it flares after shaving the relationship to tha process cannot be discounted. You may want to try alternate methods of site preparation and after care.The redness should respond to a mild steroid cream like hydrocortizone.If it persists see your doc.

I have small red bumps on my bottom that feel like blisters?

Difficult to say.

It's often difficult to diagnose skin issues without seeing them in person. I recommend seeing your doctor for diagnosis and any needed treatment.

Small red bumps on scalp of head?

? folliculitis

Red_bumps
It sounds like folliculitis, a bacterial infection of the scalp similar to acne. If you look close you may see a pustule when they first break out. They are often itchy/tender and scratched at producing a small scab. They tend to come and go. There is no permanent cure, but I often treat flares with antibiotics. I would go see a dermatologist for a definitive diagnosis and treatment options.
