Thanks for posting your query.
I presume you must be having folliculitis, which means infection of hair follicle at the most superficial location. this may heal with mild pigmentation also.
It is better if you could let me know how many such red bumps you are getting?
How often you get?
Where are the sites?
Have you used any home remedies?
Does it give rise to any symptoms?
Does it have any seasonal variation?
If you let me know more about your problem and answer these questions I may be able to comment more on your query.
I shall get back to you once I receive more information from you.
Good day
