Thanks for the query.

You might have developed furuncles.

These are deep bacterial infections.

Treatment is with antibiotics.

Its good that you are using an antibacterial cream.

A course of oral antibiotics may also be required.

as this area is a dangerous area, infection may spread to brain.

Please meet a dermatologist for exact diagnosis.

Let me know if you have any other doubt.
