Hello Doc,

Thank you for the quick reply.

Eruptions started on the face (beard area). It was having pain as well. If one eruption is finished another one pops up. I had 3-4 eruptions in the beard area. 1 eruption in the leg and currently I am having it at the stomach end in the side.

Thanks for the details.

It looks like a bacterial infection to me. The eruptions are painful and not itchy. It could be boils(furuncles). Do these eruptions have pus or yellow centre? Does it break down to release pus?
You will require a consultation with a dermatologist to ascertain the diagnosis. Recurrent furuncles at multiple sites could be due to a virulent bacteria or because your immunity is low. You might require a course of oral and topical antibiotics for which you need a prescription.

You have a feature to upload the images by yourself at the right side of the query page, please utilize that so that I can answer your query better. You can also send the image as attachment to YYYY@YYYY , with the subject as 'Attn: Dr. Johny Chacko'.

Hope I have answered your query. If you have any further questions I will be happy to help.
