Dermatologist Dr. R.G. Joshi's  Response

Thanks for writing here.

It seems you are having pyoderma.

It is caused by bacteria like staph .

You need to take oral antibiotics like amoxy clav .

This will reduce formation of new lesions.

Apply a good toilet soap for cleaning area.

Use loose cotton undergarments.

Do not try to squeeze the lesions or they will spread.

Hope this will help you.Take care.
