Question: I have had two of these bumps show up on me. Both around the neck area... about a week apart. They are not sore or anything... a little itch from time to time. Any ideas?
I have updated pictures of them in the reports section.

Brief Answer:
Folliculitis

Detailed Answer:
Hi XXXX
Welcome to Healthcaremagic
I have gone through your history and seen the photographs you have attached.
According to me it is a case of folliculitis which is inflammation of the hair follicles. I normally recommend my patients to apply topical antibiotic on these bumps to get rid of them.
I hope to have answered your query.
Wish you speedy recovery.
Regards
Dr Asmeet
