Nosirr, do you have have red bumps that appear to turn into pustules after irritation? Because they're probably just pustules that haven't completely surfaced yet. A Papule has nothing inside, I would bet you don't have these, they seem to be the rarest in occurrence and are commonly mistaken for the above as well as cysts. Usually the follicular wall is maimed in some way(bug bite), and the bodys defense go nuts on it, causing inflammation. white blood cells attack/no puss.
