Doctor :   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 Furunculosis. It is bacterial infection of skin involving the hair follicle and surrounding areas. The central portion indicates infection of hair follicle. In such cases, I prefer to advise topical antibiotic cream like mupirocin 2 percent over the affected area. Oral antibiotics like cloxacillin also help. I will advise you to get your blood sugar levels done. Visit your doctor so that he can examine you and give you prescription. You can share my opinion with him. I hope it helps. Stay healthy.
