Have frequently bumps on stomach leaving scars. What could this be?

So the August that just passed by I had this red bump on my lower abdominal. It went away leaving a purple scar . 2 months later I get another red bump near the purple scar, then it later too became a scar. No months has gone by and I have another red bump on my stomach and I have a purple scar. What is it? And how do I get rid of this scar for summer? I never got checked out by a doctor because I never had time. Please help!

Thanks for your query.
Your symptoms are suggestive of recurrent furuncles which are due to a bacterial infection.
You must show to a specialist, undergo blood sugar test, and start on appropriate antibiotics so that you can prevent further scarring. you can also apply topical antibiotics like mupirocin. once a scar sets in it is difficult to treat and hence consult a doctor to make a proper diagnosis and prevent.
Good day
