Trying to determine the cause of red bumps on my lower abdomen.

I noticed a series of red bumps (no pain or itch) starting below my belly button going down to above my groin. This is an area I commonly shave. Another interesting fact is i have a burn on my stomach (from baking sheet) and 3 small bumps formed on top of the scar. I also found my bath towel to contain mildew (smelled fine and then noticed it when it was wet). The location of the bumps is precisely where I shave and where my (moldy) towel would sit around my waist. The bumps don't seem to be spreading, but they have not gone away after a couple of weeks. I have been keeping it clean and started using cortizone10. I switched to tea tree and coconut oil recently. I also used a generic neosporin, but I am unsure what is the best approach without knowing what it is. I have no known allergies or underlying conditions.
