I recently had a dime size, red, painful, almost cystic

Patient : I recently had a dime size, red, painful, almost cystic like bump/blister etc on my chest. It is now healing but has left a dark mark. Within the last week I now have a smaller size "bump" on my inner thigh, and face. They look similar to a pimple but after examining both, definitely are not. They are not painful they are just "there". Could all of these be related? Could they be from my birth control pills I started 3 months ago? What are they??????
Doctor :   Hello. Welcome to ask the doctor. As per details, there are following possibilities for your symptoms: 1 ) Folliculi tis: it is a bacterial infection of the skin involving the hair follicle. For this, antibacterials are started. 2)Acneiform eruption: these are red colored monomorphic lesions may be caused by birth control pills. Visit your doctor so that he can examine you and give you a prescription accordingly. You can share my opinion with him. I hope it helps. Take care
