In brief: Rule out staph

When adults get "pimples" on places other than their face, it's important to rule out a staph infection.
Particularly important is to test for mrsa, which is the staph that is resistant to many of our antibiotics. Either way, the treatment will involve antibiotics, the doc just needs to figure out what is best for killing your bugs.
