Thanks for writing to us.
From the description it seems you are getting multiple furuncles/boils. Get your blood sugar level done.
for resolution of these lesions, bathe with antibacterial soap. Do warm water compresses over lesions apply topical antibiotic cream. As having multiple lesions, you may take oral antibiotic too for faster resolution. To reduce pain you may take oral analgesic like ibuprofen.
Hope that hlped.
take care
