What are these scabs

I have been getting these small yellow scabs on my legs that have little black hairs in them.

I'm going to take my best guess that these are ingrown hairs.  A scab is the body trying to heal so they aren't a bad thing and if you have hair poking through them, sounds like ingrown hairs. Do you shave there? Or wear compression shorts where there is friction? Try not to touch so you don't infect them.  Get them looked at by a doctor if it continues.
