Dear Skank
It is caused by Staph aureus bacteria. These live on our skins normally but sometimes they just take over and then infects the hair follicles and areas that chafe. Try using Bactroban ointment on any new pimples that start - put on thick and put a plaster on it. Bath with antiseptic soap. It may help to take iron supplement if you iron levels are low ( you can have it tested with a blood test)
It has nothing to do with hepatitis.
