In brief: Inflamed follicles

Often a result of plugged skin oil glands or hair follicles which can lead to pimples and small skin cysts.
Recommend seeing dermatologist to recommend antibacterial soap and surface care to reduce the oil secretions and keep the area low in bacteria. Do not squeeze, pick or try to remove them by yourself. This may lead to scarring and worsening infections.
