Some appeared before I went on holiday, some appeared while I was abroad in Lanzarote last week and others are appearing now I m home in Scotland.

Hi

You seem to have developed multiple lesions of folliculitis.
The yellow centre could be suggestive of pus collection .
keep the affected area clean and dry . Apply a topical antibiotic cream like neosporin or mupirocin over the affected area twice daily . You might a course of oral antibiotics if the lesion tends to persist or increase.
