Lesions in the groin area. Pus formation. Infected hair follicles?

I have volcano type lesions in my groin area and they swell up and burst white pus then blood, I have had these for 3 years and they seem to move from one area to another and grow and swell when I am on my period. I told a doctor about this and without and exm told me they are infected hair follicles which I know isn't the case. Should I be concerned I am 51.

Dermatologist 's  Response
welcome to healthcare magi forum
thank you for your query
i understand your concern about skin lesion.
without examination it is difficult to diagnose and treat.
your doctor should examine you.
it look like bacterial infection mostly.
but we have to find out the reason for recurrence.
you should check your sugar level .
till that you can apply antibiotic cream over the lesion .
i hope i answered your query
