What causes sores oozing fluid on scalp and face?

I need the help of a Dermatologist. I have over a dozen sores on my scalp. 2 on my face (1st is by the ear & it s the size of a plum and there is a hole and around the edges of this circular hold contains these hard gritty bead and inside the hole and is draining plus it is oozing out all around the entire area. 2nd on in on my chin size of quarter) it two has a hole and the circular sides are hard filled with the fluid a beads. There is sore on the back of my neck that keeps refilling and the hole is circular and it s edges are filled with those hard white beads. The fluid is gritty , as it dries it gets sticky, then hardens. It goes from severe itching to severe pain. The sores make these tubes that s go straight or circular, when opend you can see the liquid and the small gritty white beads/balls that are embedded in the skin (those ones are hard as cement) some are loose & can be wiped off. The pain is horrific, the itching has been some of the worst itching I ever experienced. I am on the antibiotic Bactrum twice a day. Ointment of Bactrum to apply to the red patches, clobetasol propionate cream. I decided a week ago to finally shave off all of my hair because I had bald spots, my hair was sticking to my scalp and had to peel it off due to the drainage, How do I get this fluid to stop forming??? What is this going on with my scalp?? Foliculitis? I am seeing a dermatologist but I am not getting any better . Actually it seems to be worse.

Hello,

As per your case history you are having folliculitis, my treatment advice is -
1. Don't squeeze the lesions as it may worsen the condition.
2. Apply a mild antibiotic cream like fusiderm cream twice daily on it.
3. Take a NSAID like ibuprofen for 5-7 days.
4. Other treatment options are oral antibiotics like levofloxacin, cefadroxil and azithromycin taken only after consulting a dermatologist.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
Dr. Harshit Bhachech
