Hello. Welcome to ask the doctor.
I understand your concern.
I have seen the attached photograph also.
As per details, the most likely possibility for your symptoms is a condition of skin called Furunculosis.
It is bacterial infection of skin involving the hair follicle and surrounding areas.
In such cases, I prefer to advise topical antibiotic cream like mupirocin 2 percent over the affected area.
If severe, oral antibiotics are also given like cloxacillin.
Visit your doctor so that he can examine you and give you prescription accordingly.
You can share my opinion with him.
I hope it helps.
