How do you cure open skin sores that won't heal covering your legs, arms, face, and scalp all at once

I’ve been getting sores all over that start
off as a pimple, that turn into an open wound with the scab. They also tend to have the red ring around them raised above the skin, that gets infected. I’be also noticed
long things that resemble sticky string. It’s now gone into my scalp which is causing a bald patches. Recently I’ve been getting open sores under my ear lobe and the creases of my nose. I look like a monster! This has been going on now for the past 7 months.

It could be psoriasis, see doctor for diagnosis.

Bathing daily helps remove scales and calm sore skin. Add bath oil, colloidal oatmeal, Epsom salts or Dead Sea salts to the water and soak for at least 15 minutes. Avoid hot water and harsh soaps, which can worsen symptoms; use lukewarm water and mild soaps that have added oils and fats.

Apply aloe vera gel or cream thinly to irritated and itchy patches of skin and rub lightly.
