hi..thanks for your query.
From what you mention, it is possible that there was folliculitis to start with initially .now there might be multiple eruptions with the surrounding areas,
it is important that you consult a dermatologist immediately to start the appropriate therapy.You might require oral antibiotics and anti inflammatories for the same.You can start application of antibiotic ointment like mupirocin /fusidic acid on the lesions.Taking oral anti allergics like Allegra will help you control the itching
Hope this helps
take care!
