Thanks for posting your query.
I have seen the pictures attached with the query.
The lesions you have mentioned are likely to be due to a herpes infection.
It generally presents with group of lesions, multiple in number. It is associated with fever, body pain as constitutional symptoms.
Please consult a dermatologist who after a physical examination and investigations will confirm the diagnosis and then initiate a proper treatment.
I hope this answers your query.
