Greetings. You may be having recurrent folliculitis/ furunculosis. This needs to be tackled after due evaluation and examination by a dermatologist. You ll need a course of oral antibiotics and probably a feww weeks of decolonisation measures if the problem has been very recurrent. Avoid scratching the lesion or applying home remedies for now.
