Dermatology Questions? Ask an Online Dermatologist.
I am Dr. Hoellering and pleased to help you.
These pimples look like a simple staph infection. There is no general contagious disease that causes this picture of pimples (varicella, shingles, rubella etc. look completely different) and nothing is more likely than staph infection. There are different kinds of staphylococci, and some are, in fact, multresistant. But still a healthy person without open wounds will fight those successfully with desinfection ointment only.
So your girfriend should use skin desinfectants like Erisept CHG foam wash and dry the afflicted part with one way tissues. If it will nevertheless get worse or not better within a week, she should se a dermatologist. But I see no reason to worry.
I wish her a soon recovery!

I saw that you didn't rate my answer yet. Please be so kind to catch up on it. Without your positive (hopefully 5 star) rating your experts don't get any credit for their help. I am sure this is not what you want. Thank you very much!
