Bumps between thighs and knees, pus-filled, leaving dark scar. What could this be?

I have a lot of scattered bumps between my thighs/kneess and arms that initially look like whitehead pimples or inflamed follicles.. When I squeeze them, a tiny bit of white stuff (puss?) comes out and then it just looks worse than before. The bumps will then scab over and take FOREVER to heal and often leave a dark scar . What could this be?

First and foremost I must warn never pinch then or squeeze or else secondary infections are likely to get get for further complications. A clean good wash with water and application of fucidic acid ointment is worth-try. They are follicular infections and heal of its own with keeping good hygiene of your garments. Hope they are non-itchy, otherwise. Avoid irritant soaps as well.
