Brief Answer:
may be folliculitis.

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for the photos and the history.
Photos are good, but please post focused and clear photos.

The redness around the bumps, the appearance of the bumps indicate that these may be akin to boils or folliculitis.
May settle with time.
You may apply Liquid Povidone Iodine locally to sterilize the skin and watch for the progress.
Were the bumps in March at the same spots or nearby?

Brief Answer:
As discussed

Detailed Answer:
Nice to know.
If the previous ones were not on the same site, these look to be due to folliculitis as mentioned above.
Watch for any further development, increase in size, redness or pain when you may need an antibiotic cover with anti-inflammatory medications.
Waiting to see fresh and more clear photos please.
