Brief Answer:

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for the query and photograph.
It is looking like folliculitis a bacterial infection.
I treat such cases with a combination of oral and topical antibiotics.
Take a course of tablet cefixime 200 mg twice daily for a week in consultation with your doctor and apply ointment mupirocine twice daily for a week.
This combination works well.
This rash might be secondary to an underlying allergic reaction, if you had taken contrast XXXXXXX recently.
Let me know if you have any other doubts.
Thank you.
