What causes pustules on my abdomen that burst and cause irritation?

Hi, I recently developed some (6) pustules on my abdomen that form a semi-circle. They seemed to be filled with pus at first but have since busted and are now reddish and are cause for irritation. They have been there for about a week. I have tried fungal topical ointment as well as Betamethasone cream. Any suggestions?

Hi,

It may be folliculitis caused by bacterial infection. Avoid steroid cream application,which you arecusing. Take s course of antibiotics for two weeks. Apply antibiotic cream like mupirocin cream.

Improve hygiene and immunity.

Hope this helps.
