Brief Answer:
Acneform eruption, cap doxycycline and Nadifloxacin grl

Detailed Answer:
I have reviewed the attached photographs and these seem to be acneform eruption.
If I was your treating doctor I would recommend you take capsule doxycycline 100 mg once daily at bedtime and apply Nadifloxacin gel on the bumps twice daily for 2-3 weeks.
These are prescription drugs and should be used under the supervision of the doctor.
Besides this keep the area dry, avoid oiling of scalp, hot humid weather and oily creams.

Detailed Answer:
I don't think there is any need to take tablet Ketoconazole.
You can continue playing tennis at night.
Apply nadifloxacin gel on the affected areas twice daily, take tablet allegra 180 mg in the morning and capsule doxycycline 100 mg at bedtime.

Answered by Dr. Asmeet Kaur Sawhney 2 hours later
Brief Answer:
Serum IgE raised, rest of the reports are normal

Detailed Answer:
I have reviewed the reports and they are normal except serum Ig E levels which are elevated.
It indicates that your urticaria can be prolonged as it is probably related to raised antibodies in the blood and antiallergics need to be continued for a long time.
