Ok so for about 5 years or so, I have this outbreak of red bumps on my stomach, legs, and buttock, as well as other places if it spreads more. They seem to grow on the hair follicles and often turn into pimple like things. They always come when it is hot outside and I sweat often and workout. In the winter its not usually there. Occasionally they itch or may hurt a little. My mother (a nurse) gave me nystatin and triamcinolone and that helped indeffinitely but it comes back. Anybody know what it is? Is it fungal? And also, could it cause swollen lymph nodes since ive had it so long?
