Brief Answer:
Oral and topical antibiotics. I suggest pus cuture sensitivity test

Detailed Answer:
Hello. Thank you for writing to us

I am dr.kakkar (dermatologist).
I have gone through your query and I have noted your concern.

He seems have bacterial folliculitis. Folliculitis is usually painful and lesions have a pus point. I would suggest a course of an oral antibiotic e.g Moxclav 1gm, twice daily for a week.
Topically he may use an antibacterial ointment e.g T-Bact Ointment, twice daily.

The investigations attached are fine. However I would like him to get a pus culture and sensitivity test from one of the folliculitis lesions in order to guide furure antibiotic therapy, if required.

He should avoid hair oil and wash his scalp daily with Cetrilak 5% shampoo Or Betadine AD shampoo.

Thank you. I have viewed the attachments.

You said they recur. Thats exactly the reason I suggest a pus culture and sensitivity testing so as to guide appropriate antibiotic testing for cure.

I ve been having RUQ for 8mos. My GI doc says I m fine (normal US, normal blood tests, Hida scan BGEF 88%, endoscopy showed no ulcers , biopsies normal). I ve pretty much given up and just live with the pain (the symptoms read like a poorly functioning gallbladder ), but last night I had a glass of red wine (cut with water) and the pain was double or triple what it usually is. What would cause that?
