Green and yellow pimples on head

My boyfriend is veteran from Iraq and started noticing green and yellow filled pimples on the back of his head and in his hair line 2 years ago. The military doctors said it was due to the fine sand in the desert clogging his pores. I beg to differ. they are all over his head, but not on his face. He was given a STD medication and it went away, only to come right back when he finished it. No one can seem to give us answers and I am baffled. I have tried to clean them out and they come right back. He is healthy and everything else checks out OK. Please help us figure this mystery out THANKS!!

could it be a staph infection or MRSA? it is very hard to treat with antibiotics.... you may want to google MRSA. Good luck.
