Need to examine: It is not feasible to provide a meaningful opinion without additional history, physical examination and may be some tests. Your description suggests bacterial folliculitis and you may need a different antibiotic. If you have fever, you should consider going to th emergency room of a nearby hospital, otherwise see your doctor.
