Thanks for your query

You have developed lesions of folliculitis which is a skin infection.
Do not apply any oil or moisturizers over the skin.
Wear cotton clothes so as to reduce sweating.

You need to apply a topical antibiotic cream over the affected parts twice a day.
you may also need oral antibiotics for the skin lesions.
Clean the affected areas with an antiseptic solution daily.

Hope it helps
