Reddish itchy bumps recurring. What are these?

Hey, I'm a female of the age of 15 and I have these little red bumps, they stick around for like a month, then go away and come back again in the same spot. There's not a lot of them, there's only about 3 or four sometimes they itch and hurt and -very rarely- bleed.
It's really scaring me. Please note, I've never participated in any sexual activity what so ever, I've never even kissed someone.

What could it be?
