Skin reaction: Sounds like these are some type of local irritation which could have several causes. It is possible to get these types of lesions just from the rubbing and physical trauma to the skin.

It sounds like they are responding to the antibiotic cream, however that may not be enough. You are likely dealing with abscesses or boils. Did you recently shave? This is a common precursor to infection. Please visit your doctor because std'd still need to be ruled out. If it is bacterial your doctor may put you on oral antibiotics. It is always best to have a doctor examine you in these types of instances.
Good luck. ...Read more
