In brief: This

This sounds like folliculitis.
You can get this from contaminated water such as a hot tub. Use anti-bacterial soap and try to think of any exposures you have had. You need to be medically evaluated as they have been persistent. If you get redness, red streaks, discharge, feel "flu like", or have a fever then you need to be evaluated immediately as an emergency.
