Please upload an image

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for asking on HealthcareMagic.

I have gone carefully through your query and understand your concerns. You are already doing all the things that would have sufficed had there been an actual pathology. I would insist you to upload an image of the affected area (I understand that it may be awkward, neverthelesss, it is essential). Based on that I would guide you further.

I would await your response. Let me know if I could help further.

Brief Answer:
Depilating agents can be tried

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for the images. I have checked them. It did not seem concerning. Possibly you are feeling the hair follicles. If they seem bothering, you can apply depilating agents like XXXXXXX French or Veet there.

Brief Answer:
A surgeon can help

Detailed Answer:
The lumps are either due to collection of sebaceous secretions or are simple follicles. You need not remove them. If you still insist, you can visit a surgeon who can get them removed as a minor OT procedure.
