Hello, i keep getting these annoying pimples my shoulders and back. they usually come one or two at a time. They are deep and large and they last about 3 weeks till they go away. They are leaving scars on my shoulders and back. I have gone through 2 rounds of antibiotics but it doesnt seem to help. These pimples are not normal for me started getting them when i was 23 and have had them consistently for the last two years. What can I do?

It is a bacterial infection. usually these bacteria are very resistant to common antibiotics. Capsule rifampicin 300 mg daily for 10 days with topical application of ointment mupirocine twice daily will help you. Let me know if you have any other doubts. Thank you
