You might be probably having folliculitis.I would recommend you to take T.Azithral250mg twice daily for 5-7days along withT.Signoflam and T.Zinetac150mg twice daily before food for 5 days with topical T.Bact cream twice daily for 5-7 days.Since you have recurring folliculitis do check your blood glucose levels and report to me.

hi,welcome to HCM,
looks like you are having a sebacious gland infection,its nothing related to heat,if some of the gland duct gets obstructed and infected,it comes a boil,just take some simple ampicillin 500mg and antiinflammatory like chymeral forte daily twice after food for 5 days, before that hope you are not allergic to penicillin.
