There is a red bump about half the size of a pea on my leg about two inches from my bikini line. There is no head on it right now. What could it be?

In brief: Red bumps

If you shave your bikini area, this could be folliculitis.
The skin could be irritated and infected due to using the same razor repeatedly.

In brief: See a dermatologist

Probably a small furuncle - irritated hair follicle- due to shaving or other hair removal.
