Suggest treatment for lesions of folliculitis over the arms
User rating for this question
I have a rash that is mainly on my arms but I do have a few spots all over. This rash started about 3 weeks ago.I saw my doctor and was given Clyndemiacin , not sure about spelling, my rash started to clear a little. Then it became much worse. It now has little blisters with a white center. These pop and bleed alot. Then they scab over. They also itch really bad and apparently I scatch while sleeping. When one heals another pops up. Sometimes there are blisters inside ones that break open. What do I do?
