They seem like boils or furuncle. Boils are caused by infection of the hair follicle by staph aureus. Bacterial skin infections can be spread by shared cosmetics or washcloths, close human contact, or by contact with pus from a boil or carbuncle.
A boil generally starts as a reddened, tender area. Over time, the area becomes firm and hard. Eventually, the center of the abscess softens and becomes filled with pus. Finally, the pus "forms a head," which can be surgically opened or spontaneously drain out through the surface of the skin.
Apply warm compresses on the boil and keep the area clean.Drainage of the boil is done only when it becomes soft and forms a head.Take some over the counter pain reliever and consult a doctor for examination and antibiotics prescription.If there are recurrent boils,then pls get your blood sugar levels estimated.
Hope it helps.Take care and pls do keep us posted if you have any additional queries.
It sounds to me like you may have hidradenitis suppurativa. (I have this.) It effects the sweat glands in your armpits and your groin area. Mine appear to look like boils, with hard lumps under the surface. The neosporin is a nice idea. I would see your dermatologist or at the very least your regular doc. There are things that can be done to lessen the outbreaks. I've been deal with my latest one for about a month now. (I've posted on here if you're interested.) Mayo clinic has a nice article about it on their website, and you can google for the HS foundation website. It's kind of rare, and there is no cure, but stuff can be done to help. I wish you luck and let me know if you have any more questions.
It IS Hydrantitis..You need a correct diagnosis..and this is it.!
I have it as well. I have a huge knot under my arm right now,
that I must have removed. This is the worst one ever.
It can be treated, but will NOT go away.
