because i have been sweating a lot more in the past month from increasing cardio and humid weather

clothes rub up against hairy body areas (yes including arm hair) that are moist with wet/dry sweat and after a few days red bumps appear

Sweat and increased oil production out of nowhere. I occasionally break out on my chest because out of nowhere my chest would become very oily. Just a freakish thing I guess. What helped me was leaving the neutrogena mask on specific pimples overnight. The next day they would drie up a lot. Then they would gradually disappear. Its only like $6 at any drug store.

This is probably folliculitis. Because of the location and your description, I would guess it is Pityrosporum Folliculitis. It might be some other kind of folliculitis and it is best to go to a doctor and have a skin scraping to find out. You could try putting some kind of anti-dandruff shampoo on it and leave it on for several minutes every day for a few weeks. It could take a few weeks of treatment for it to go away it and will probably come back eventually and will need to be treated again.

Pityrosporum Folliculitis and other forms of folliculitis can affect the face too and could be causing what looks like acne on your face.
