I was affected with this yellow/orange scab like thing and it was terrible. It occurred on my chin and on my nose and WOULD NOT GO AWAY. I made a visit to a local clinic and they said it was a minor staph infection and gave me ointment to apply. After applying for not even a week the horrible scabs that had been affecting me for months were gone. I hope this helps.
What did they gave you? Topical antibiotics like fusidic acid (this one did nothing for me) or mupirocin?
How much did these photos look like what you had? :
