Pus bump rashes on face after stopping Antibiotics

I have these very stubborn rashes on my face. They are actually more like a bunch of pus bumps that located very close to each other around my mouth, chin and below both of my eyes (top of my cheeks). Now the pus bumps around my mouth are spreading outward towards the cheeks. The pus bumps on top of the cheeks are also spreading. They do not itch at all, and there is no pain. Other areas of my body are fine. I also have a moderate level of brain fog that stays 24/7 which I think might be related to the pus bumps. My abilities to organize and multitask have been greatly reduced. My physical strength is fine as well.

I have had this condition since I stopped taking very high doses of antibiotics for 1.5 years for Lyme disease. I was being seen by a naturopathic doctor who diagnosed me with Lyme, and for that year and a half, she prescribed me a whole bunch of high strength antibiotics that are usual for Lyme disease patients. I felt great and my skin was perfect while on these things. After she declared me lyme-free, she told me to wean off the meds. About 3 weeks after this, the first rash/pus bumps started to appear below my mouth and under my eyes. Now it is all over my face. I have been fighting these pus bumps for about 8 months so far, and it is definitely only getting worse and spreading.

Most pus bumps are about 0.25 to 0.75 cm in diameter, and they are slightly deep in the skin, not on the very surface of the skin. Some of them will eventually reach the surface and drain this bloody pus and lots of it, and will refill very quickly. The bumps make my skin red. The skins around these areas are also cracking and peeling. I can push these pus bumps with my finger and can feel the pus inside squishing around.

I have tried the following (I would say I gave each of these at least 1-2 weeks worth of try):
apple cider vinegar (internally and externally),
baking soda internally,
fucidal ointment ,
clotrimazole 1% ,
ketoconazole 2% cream,
Protopic ointment 0.1%,
hydrogen peroxide 3%,
food grade hydrogen peroxide taken internally,
epsom salts,
coconut oil (internally and externally),
turmeric powder (internally and externally),
chlorhexidine gluconate 4.0%,
aloe gel,

I’m very tired of fighting this and I feel like I’m losing this battle. I’m at the point where I will try anything now. Please let me know anything I could do that might help me with this.

Thank you very much

Order guardian of Eden food grade H202 (hydrogen peroxide)

-it is pure so must be mixed down.

Add 1oz pure H202 into a cup and
8oz on top. this will be three times stronger than 3% H202.

Add 4tbs of Borax and mix.

Soak a cloth and rub this over infected part of face. Do this every 15 minutes for 90 minutes.

Do this every day for 10 days.

90% of bumps will be gone and coverage rash on your face will be gone.

Have a doctor inject remaining bumps with high quality colloidal silver once a week or buy supplies to do this at home once a day until last bumps are gone.

Nothing else works that I have ever read. I tried it all before doing this.

Hi, I took antibiotic for 3 months and I got rash as you have. I tried lots of thing but did not work.
However, lemon juice and tomato seems like working on me. You can try too.
Just squeeze a key lime into a glass of water and drink it once a day for 7 days. You also can have a tomato a day. See you feel good or not. It is helping me. I hope its help you too.
