Sore and sometimes painful

Though not clear but they seem to be either shingles or bacterial infection. I would suggest applying Neosporin cream over it and see a doctor to confirm the diagnosis as you would need prescription medicine for this.

I have applied neosporin cream for the past two days and cleaning it up with warm water. Let me send another picture

Please check

It looks like shingles more and I would suggest seeing a doctor for a thorough examination as you would need acyclovir prescription for this.

Last question. It can come on the back of my right thigh? It’s not there on the left. Will rate 5 stars. Thanks

Yes, shingles is usually unilateral and occur like a patch on one side.
