Thanks for the query. Based on your description it looks like a superficial bacterial infection usually caused by staphylococcus aureus. Kindly consult a dermatologist for exact diagnosis and a precise treatment plan. Its also important to prevent their relapse once you have got it cured. A decolonization regimen suggested by your doctor will help.

Meet a Dermatologist. Consider getting a pus culture and sensitivity report to identify the bug and treat accordingly.
