How long you have them?
Are they itchy?
Thanks for the clarification.
This is likely folliculitis --bacterial infection of the hair follicles.
This can come from the gym from shred showers, towels etc.
You will need prescription antibiotic course for cure.
Usually 10 day course will treat for good.
Doxycycline 100 mg twice daily
Best wishes and Get well soon,
