What causes a red bump on back?

Hi,My name is Jessica Bieber back in January i had to take amoxicillinn because my doctor said i had strep group b and a bladder infection. 2 months passed i feel great. But then on the back of my neck i noticed a red bump and i kept scratching it and overnight it turned into a scab! also on my head i have 2 spots were rashes are and i keep scratching it.... this went away and came back few weeks after. I have been sneezing so maybe allegies? But i also tend to take very very hot showers so i am not sure! Thank you for helping me out!bib

Hello,

Your symptoms seem to be related to back acne. I suggest to clean it with hydrogen peroxide and cover it with an antibiotic cream such as Neosporin cream. I also suggest to use loose cotton clothes.

Hope my answer was helpful. If you have further queries feel free to contact me again.

Regards,
Dr. Dorina Gurabardhi
