scarring sores -inguinal area and thighs

I'm really worried because I get recurrent sores on my thighs and inguinal region which leave scarring. My doctor said that it is bacterial infection and has given me topical antibiotics. However, I am worried about the scarring that remains after the sores heal. I've been getting these sores since I was very young. I don't have diabetes or HIV, plus I've never been sexually active. Please help!

This is not really a gynae question. Other than what your doctor has suggested, I cannot give any other advice.
