Hi there,
This is Dr Basu, experienced Internal Medicine Specialist.
I am here to address your concerns and provide great service.

These bumps are due to the eczema.

Immunogenic reaction to the metal belt or from heat or from clothing material can cause this type of rash.

A stronger prescription steroid like Triamcinolone acetonide 0.1% ointment twice daily for 10 days should clear up the rash.

Over the counter Hydrocortisone ointment can be tried by it is a weak steroid may not always work.

This is not an infection.

Best wishes,
It was my pleasure to help you today.
