Well after taking Doxycycl Hyclate tablets two daily of 100mg morning after the rash got worse but did not spread, it is now clearing up and the redness is lightly bruised instead but going away. the white heads are gone and the main protrusions are reduced in size.
It seems its only a couple of days until its totally gone.
From the symptoms the possibility of folliculitis needs to be ruled out. Folliculitis starts when hair follicles are damaged by friction from clothing or blockage of the follicle.
Keep the area clean and apply some topical antiseptics. Also wear loose-fitting cotton clothing and use an antibacterial soap or mild soap like dove. Topical antibiotics such as Neosporin or Bactroban are also useful. In case the symptoms persist then oral antibiotics may be needed.
