In brief: Red bumps

This could be a few different conditions.
It may be irritation of the hair follicles which can happen from shaving or friction. It could be a yeast infection or possibly a bacterial infection. You could try an antibacterial soap and making sure all areas are completely dry before putting clothing on. If that does not help, you should consider seeing a physician for other treatment options.
