You are not my dermatologist, but what are these
and how do I treat them? As SFW as any close-up shots of skin can be.

Both are protrusions from my skin that developed in the last year, and have stayed stable in size and shape since then. The one on the left is on my neck and is dark red in color. The one on the right is on my back and is pink - it looks like a nipple, basically. Both are round and about three millimeters across.
I'd rather not go through the rigmarole to get a referral to see a dermatologist, especially if this is one of those acne things that everyone knows the name of but me. What are these called and is there something I can treat them with over the counter?
