Itchy scabs on the jawline after scratching the bumps on them. What could be the cause and remedy?

Hi, recently I had a couple pimple-like bumps show up on my jawline. They became itchy, and I did scratch them a little bit. However, upon doing this, the bumps became tender and popped and some leaked a bit of pus/ blood . Now I am left with itchy scabs on my jawline and not sure what this is or why I would have gotten this in the first place? I ve never had or seen these before.
