Rash of sore spots to back of head

Posted In: Skin conditions Anonymous | November 11, 2015 | 10:29 AM

Over the past 2 years, I have suffered with spots appearing at the back of my head, usually about 10 or so. They fill up and are squeezeable, puss and blood come out and that one dries up only to reappear elsewhere. To squeeze them, which is rather awkward, it is very painful.
I have always sweated from the rear of my head, so I originally thought it was a sweat rash, but they are now continuos and I'm not sweating. I have been to my Doctor who just diagnoses a sweat rash, gives me a prescription for Fluoxicilin which dries them all up for the 7 day course, then behold, back they come. I now have had 4 courses of this drug which does not cure the problem long term. I am 67 years old and getting very depressed with the problem. I do not suffer headaches as a result of this problem, but feel the pain from them with my head on a pillow. Anyone out there able to help please.
