In brief: Acne mechanica
Pressure acne (if this is what it is; it resembles familiar face acne) is very common especially in guys who can bench a lot of weight.
Be proud of what you've achieved, and consider topical Clindamycin for the affected areas.

In brief: Ease up a little
You may be over working the muscles in that area.
Try it with lighter weights and see if the same thing happens. Go slow and maintain good form with each rep.
