Yellow pus filled- pimple, increasing in size, leaves a brown scar forming round sores. What is the cause?

what is the cause of perfectly round sores that start out looking like a small pimple or ingrown hair that grow with each day and become very deep pitted sores with a yellow puss that leaks out and becomes crusty, when they do finally heal they leave very dark ugly brown scars about the size youd expect a ciggarette burn to be

Probably what you encounter is Pseudofolliculitis[pilincarniti].The cause might be waxing or shaving.So do shave in the same direction or use a tweezers for trimming the hair.SaslicDs solution twice daily can be used for relief and prophylactic use of Topicalglyco6 or glycoA is recommended to prevent this.
