User avatar It may be a blocked pore or hair follicle in the skin. These can become blocked and fill with skin proteins causing them to become hard. Occasionally they can become infected and need drained/treated with antibiotics.

If the lumps aren't getting any bigger and aren't causing any pain they are probably ok to just watch. If they are causing you discomfort or concern I would recommend that you be evaluated by your doctor.

Best wishes.
