I have a few bumps, What could they be ?

I have a few bumps that appeared on Friday morning... One is on my forehead, it s very red and hurts. The others are on my head, one right by my hairline and a couple smaller ones further back. They are all red and sore . What could they be ? At first I thought maybe in my sleep I hit my head on my night table which is what caused the bump, but it doesn t explain the one on my forehead. Thanks

I don't believe they're insect bites at all, no fluid either although they weren't itchy in the beginning from yesterday they started to get a bit itchy... I did go to the Dr and he said it might be some kind of skin infection and perscribed me some Keflex, told me that if they do not improve in 2 days that I'm to go back to see him.

The only other symptom I have is swollen glands... A lot of them, ranging from my chin down my neck and on both sides... They're about the size of marbles, maybe a bit bigger some are...

Thanks for the query.
It appears to be bacteriological skin infection , pyoderma / Cellulitis. It invariably responds to antibiotics like Novoclox 500 mg three times a day for five days. The area need to be cleaned with Spirit or antiseptic solution. Pain killers like Combiflam may be required.
