Thanks for the query.

You might be suffering from furunculosis.

It is a deep bacterial infection.

You need treatment with topical as well as oral antibiotics.

Also application of antibiotic cream in nostrils will prevent further recurrance.

Please meet a dermatologist and discuss regarding this.

Let me know if you have any other doubt.
