Brief Answer:
Most probably its folliculitis.

Detailed Answer:
Thank you for posting your question to HCM,

I read carefully your description and watched the picture you provided.

From the looks of it, seems like it is an infection called folliculitis, because the spreading of it its typical too.

If they are not itchy, the chances that it will be an allergy are very low.
Also, they have appeared very fast to be an acne.

Have a look on it, because sometimes the body fights it by itself.

If it will get worse, or not better, you may need an antibiotic prescription from your local doctor.

Hope this is helpful.
Let me know if you need any more clarification.

Take care,
Dr. Papaqako
