about 6 months ago I got impetigo. I am left with a red scar on the outer septum that hasn’t gone away. Now, from time to time my septum will slightly swell and form one small white dot. This eventually goes away within a few days. What can this be?

Hi My 31 year old daughter was diagnosed with impetigo a week ago, It was on her arm. She got a cream and oral antibiotics for a chest infection. She has one day of pills left but her leg is breaking out today with dry itchy red dots. She called Dr back and was told to finish pills. Seems strange to me.
I have had 5 boils each appeared at different times since 20 yrs old, I am now 28. The first one appeared a year after my 104 degree fever bronchitis/namonia... first on my left buttocks... after it bursted it healed... then another appears above it on the right side of my waist on the back... it too bursted and healed... then another appeared on my left forearm... it too bursted and healed... then I got one on my left check... i expirence my lower check/chin line swell up like a baseball... it was the first time i was treated with antibotics this time after going to the hospital er... two days later it finally bursted... it too healed... months later a boil formed above my left eye also with fever... it too bursted and healed... i now have an infection on my face that appears like impetigo and i am currently treating it with antibotics... no boils this time but during a short lived fever a lymph node on the front right side of neck the size of a pea... my infection is going away but this painless pea sized ball is still like so. Some kind of blood cancer runs in my family, my grandfather had one form and his sister, my aunt who had passed from it after fighting it with treatment... i also just learned that their father, my great grandfather had passed from a cancer of the blood... when I went in for a blood test at the er, they said I had a high white blood cell count, but I just assumed my skin infection/impetigo was to blame... are these symptoms of a blood cancer or lymph nodes, I m also have a poor appetite, lack energy when I used to run 3-6 miles 3 times a week, I am losing a lot of weight... average was 105 now I m 95lbs... and i don t work out as much.
A few months ago I had a severe cystic acne breakout that came from use of a cosmetic product I was allergic to, improper care when cleaning my skin, and along with impetigo and an emergence of eczema on my face. I was given several antibiotics that actually drained my face and cleared the acne within two weeks, leaving PIH spots. These spots have since cleared up with use of Eucerin and I have yet to have more than one or two small pimples since then (and I ve been cleansing my skin better as well). However, there was a particular cyst under my eye that drained and has left a purple bruise that is not tender or itchy to the touch (feels like nothing is there and is not raised on the skin). I have light brown skin so the bruise-like scar is noticeable, but not stark. It hasn t faded since the wound healed. What is this spot and is there anything I can do to rid of it?
