Doctor: Hello.Thanks for your query on ATD.It seems that you are having furunculosis. It is a bacterial infection of hair follicles. The fiddling or popping may further spread the infection. You may require antibiotics both orally & topically. Kindly contact your family physician or dermatologist ASAP.Hope this helps.Get well soon.
