Spread out sores on legs, little pus, redness, leaving scars

hello, i have been getting relatively spread out little sores on the back on my legs that start out as a small blister/ pimple sort of thing. not very much pus at all, and they are not overly sore, but they will not go away. I have been getting them sporadically over the year. They are very red and leave nasty scarring, even though i do not pick at them!
