In brief: See a doctor

How do you know it is a bacterial infection? It certainly could be.
.. However, recurrent skin lesions in the same spot can be allergic (contact dermatitis), something like shingles (viral), very rarely cancer or autoimmune. The only way to be correctly diagnosed and treated is to go and see your doctor quickly.

In brief: MRSA

Some bacterial infections can be so serious that they eat up your skin and spread.
I'm concerned you are describing Methicillin Resistant Staph Aureus. Please see your doctor as soon as possible.
