Sounds like the start to a yeast infection (don't take yeast lightly. It can build to a staph infection). Call your vet and ask for a good medicated shampoo to combat yeast issues. Pits are kinda prone to yeast issues with that super short coat the oils tend to accumulate on the skin more than other breeds. Can you post any pics of these bumps?

In the meanwhile here's some good info for you on skin bumps: http://www.peteducation.com/article....2+2111&aid=426
