Hello.

Because of the summer job I had I was exposed to ionizing radiations almost on a daily basis for about 2 weeks. Shortly after that, these huge pimples-like things filled with puss started to appear on my body, one at a time (especially on the legs). I treat them with all sorts of ointments, but they reappear in other places.

I know that ionizing radiations can lower ones immune system; could this be the cause to my skin problems?

For those interested, here is an image with that thing. It was filled with yellow puss but it bursted.

Thank you for asking at Ehealth forum!

I read your question and I understand your concern.
Ionizing radiations are not responsible for these lesions. I would suggest you oral antibiotic like moxifloxacin.
I hope it helps. Stay in touch with your healthcare provider for further guidance as our answers are just for education and counselling purposes and cannot be an alternative to actual visit to a doctor.
Take care
