Welcome to XXXXXXX forum.

Let me know the associated details along with mentioned.
Do you have abdominal discomfort/ frequent watery diarrhea/ gargling sound in abdomen/ bleeding per rectum?
Is this itching present in other family members?
Is these bumps are painful in nature?

With the available described symptoms, there could be possibility of Pin worm infestation (Enterobius vermicularis), warts, eczematous dermatitis.
Itching favors pin worm infestation and bump feeling suggests the warts.

You should consult with XXXXXXX medicine specialist/ general surgeon/ dermatologist and should go for thorough check up.
You should also go for per rectal examination for better clarification.
You should also go for complete blood count, stool examination for parasite ova, ultrasound imaging studies.

Treatment depends on exact diagnosis.
Meanwhile, you should apply aleo vera cream, clobetasol ointment, and moisturizer lotion.
You should wear soft cotton undergarments.

Hope that helps.
Let me know your other query.
Take care,
