Hi This looks like furunculosis. This is not acne. This is a severe hair follicles infection by a bacterial infection called staphylococcus. This condition may be recurring as the bacteria makes you the host. You will need oral antibiotics as well as drainage of the pus . Please contact a dermatologist or surgeon who can examine you and prescribe the appropriate skin care products and treatments
