What is your gender and age ??

Do you have any medical conditions ?

Do you take any medications?

Are the lesions on the skin known to be boils ( infection ) or sebaceous cysts as a close possible type lesion?

Do you have much facial or back acne ??

You might have a hormonal issue ..

Diabetes makes people more susceptible to skin infections possibility ...

Of you had high cortisol then that is an adrenal hormone excess which could cause more boils ( and potentially acne )

Let me know if you have further questions or concerns
