Detailed Answer:
hello and thank you for sending the question.

I am concerned that you might be dealing with a skin infection which is causing the source to continue to be a problem for you.

There are certain types of staph and strep bacteria which can cause these type of superficial skin infections.

In light of the concern regarding infection I would recommend that you visit with your primary care doctor for a good physical examination. Your doctor might recommend that you take an antibiotic by mouth in addition to possibly a topical antibiotic to help get this under control.
