Hi there!

It is likely to be cystic acne that occurs with hormonal changes with the menstrual cycle. It is advised to wash the skin atleast 2-3 times a day with a mild soap and keeping it oil free. You could also try using ointments containing benzoyl peroxide over it. OCP’s may also reduce their occurrence. If these measures do not seem to help, it is advised to consult a dermatologist for appropriate management.
Hope this is helpful.

Take care!
