Thanks for posting your query.

As I believe that more information can help a physician help a patient better, please answer the following questions:

1. How long are you having these rashes?
2. Is there any associated fever?
3. Have you taken any treatment till now?
4. Are the rashes associated with itching?

From the description it seems to be a skin and subcutaneous tissue infection like folliculitis. Systemic antibiotics and topical antibiotics along with anti inflammatory drugs are needed for relief.

You can upload the photos of the rashes in the box provided on the right side as this would help me in providing you with specific suggestions.

Awaiting your response.

Wishing you good health.

Dr. Rakhi Tayal.
