Thanks for your query.

You seem to be developing superficial folliculitis.

Avoid using oils or moisturizers over the face.

Use a topical antibiotic cream over the affected area twice a day.

You can take oral antibiotics for the same also.
Do not apply any irritants or dettol over the face.
Do not use and steroid creams over the affected areas.

Hope it helps.
