Brief Answer:
They are due to infection.

Detailed Answer:
Hi,

Thank you for posting in health care magic.

As the bumps release pus, they are of infective origin. You need good antibiotics.

I prescribe Antibiotics like Clindamycin capsule along with Cefuroxime tablet to my patients with similar complaints. I also add anti inflammatory tablets.

Please consult your doctor and get checked.

You should keep your Anal area clean. In most cases, the source of infection is from Anal region only.

If you use antibiotic course, the bumps will disappear.

Nothing to worry.
If you have any queries, I will clarify further.
Wish you good health.
Regards
