Hello. Welcome to ask the doctor.
I understand your concern.
As per details, the most likely possibility for your symptoms is a condition of skin called Folliculitis. It is a bacterial infection of the skin involving the hair follicle. In such cases, I prefer to advise topical antibiotic cream like mupirocin 2 percent over the affected area.

You may revisit your doctor so that he can examine you again.
You can share my opinion with him.
I hope it helps.
