Hidradenitis: What you describe is most suggestive of Hidradenitis suppurutiva which is a condition of recurrent skin infections usually from a bacteria called staph aureus. Treatment often consists of aggressive daily hygeine with antibacterial scrubs and potentially a nasal or oral antibiotic as well to reduce recurrence rates. A family doc, internist or dermatologist can diagnose and treat this condition. ...Read more

May need antibiotics: Rashes are difficult to describe in words. If a person has recurrent pimples on places where regular acne doesn't occur, he likely has infection in skin glands and/or hair follicles. A primary care doctor or a dermatologist can look at the skin and make a diagnosis. The doctors can prescribe oral antibiotics or creams/ointments as needed. Sometimes the bacteria are resistant to antibiotics. ...Read more

See Doctor Now: Shaving produces microscopic trauma to the skin, allows any bacteria present to invade hair follicles causing infection (Folliculitis). Infection can spread, produce pus & require antibiotics. Need to bathe with soap/water prior to shaving, use shaving cream or gel to limit trauma, use clean razor & change after 2-3 shaves to prevent recurrence. See doctor now for correct diagnosis & treatment. ...Read more
