Question pimple-like bumps on legs/tummy

hi,

it's mostly just in the summer that i get these but, they're pimple-like bumps that appear mostly on my thighs. i do tend to sweat a lot and my skin is a little sensitive so, i'm guessing it's just my skin being irritated from this?

along with these bumps, i've been getting a few sebaceous cysts, one being right beside my belly button right now. i've tried everything to make it pop and drain but, it's not going away. i think i may have had too hot baths and it's sort of turned into a blister now. if that makes sense.

can anybody help me with this? i'll be going to the doctor on tuesday.

The doctor treated mine as a folical infection. However, they are back again. I think it is due to my weight and the heat in Texas right now. Goldbond powder helps.

i went to the doctor about this a few weeks back. i was given antibiotics to treat a folical infection as well. they have since disappeared but, i am now left with many, many scars on my legs. thank goodness the summer heat has passed.
