Bumps on trunk with white heads, no itching but painful. Help

I have read bumps (40?) on my truck area some with white heads on them. I get a few more every day and am not sure what they are. My husband has them as well but only under the arms. I have used alcohol , peroxide (which some of them do fizz up) and antiseptic cleaner. They dont itch very much but are painful with clothes on (Bra, Panties.) The only things I know of that my husband and I have contacted together is the sand around our pool, mulch left from the tree trimming company and sleeping in the same bed. Help! Shelli
