Spots on chest, stomach and breasts, start as red, itchy and turn into yellow pin sized center and subside. Serious?

Hi, I have small spots coming out on my chest , stomach and breasts. They start red & itchy then they develop a yellow pin sized centre that s v painful and go away after a few days/ week. One appreaed right next to my nipple , it went away then reappeared in the exact position againafter just one day. The colour around it is changes, it has become smaller, no pain but stil lumpy on touch. Could that be serious? Why am I getting these pimples now? What am I doing wrong?

Dermatologist 's  Response

It seems that you may be having folliculitis.

It is an infection of hair follicle.

It is bacterial in origin.. Staphylococcal.

Poor immunity and poor hygiene may be precipitating factors.

Oral antibiotics with antiinflammatory drugs would improve the condition.

Immunobusters and health nutrients may be taken.

Dettol bath may be taken to improve hygiene.

Apply antibiotic cream on the lesions.

I hope you got my answer.
