Hi and welcome.
Please attach a photo here.
In the picture the lesions looked maculopapular - which means that they are scabbed bumps with inflammation around them. This is often seen in folliculitis. The diagnosis is consistent with your history of working in a hot and sweaty environment.
The pain is due to the inflammation or perifolliculitis. I would suggest that you start putting an antibiotic ointment over the lesions, bacitracin twice a day and keep the area clean and dry (free of sweat). Avoid sitting on them for long periods of time.
Let me know if you have further questions.
