Hallo AJ
These could be a heat rash, or infection of the follicles, or an eczema. Rather show your doctor/clinic sister or pharmacist next time this happens as it is difficult to guess which one it can be without seeing it. The black marks are caused by the scar tissue that form. Try bio-oil for it.
