I have these hair irritations on my leg. They tend to turn red and sore.. Even scar later. What can I do to prevent this?

In brief: Infection

This could be scarring from a hair follicle infection with staph.
It is best to be treated initially with course of antibiotics. Preventive measures include a antibacterial soap, vitamin c, and perhaps bovine colostrum.
