The humidity and sweat is most likely causing some inflammation of the folicle.  Exfoliation with a product with glycolic, lactic or salicylic acid a couple of times a week should help.  Follow with a good moisturizer (shea butter is great!).  If it persits or gets worse, see your doctor!

I also get these bumps and have a lot of friends with the same problem. The only thing you can really do is exfoliate with a loufa or scrub and use a good moisturizer after showering. Tanning also helps but I don't recommend it since sun damage causes 90% of visible aging!
