I have has a rash where some of the spots get infected, a little like acne for the past 10 months.

After searching the internet, one of the most similar symptoms sounds like Pseudomonas folliculitis (hot tub folliculitis), however this is normally to clear up in under a week and I've had mine for a long time. It does seem to improve when I swim in the sea or exposure to the sun, but as much as it gets better it can inflame again within a matter of a day and come up with spots all along the back of my legs and buttocks, with some of the spots as white heads. I did live in Hong Kong (which is very humid) but I now live in Sydney and I am really upset about it as there is such a beach culture here but I'm paranoid about being in a bikini as I think people will notice.
