User avatar Hi Shorty2Forty,

You may have a folliculitis, inflammation of the hair follicles. It is also possible that you have a skin infection such as impetigo although this sounds less likely.

You may also have a contact dermatitis, possibly from a new detergent or clothing.

If this is not resolving I would recommend yuo see your doctor.

Best wishes.
