Hello. Welcome to ask the doctor.
As per details, the most likely possibility for the symptoms you mentioned is a condition of skin called Pityriasis folliculitis. It is caused by a fungus Malasezzia furfur.
The precipitating factors for this condition are hot humid climate, excess sweating.
In such cases, I prefer to advise topical antifungals like clotrimazole cream and tablet fluconazole.
Keep the body tidy and dry.
You can share my opinion with your doctor.
I understand your concern.
I hope it helps.
