Depends where locate: Located. You might be having MRSA lesions/boils develop, and it would be good to know what part of your body it's happening.You want to prevent against secondary bacterial infection, so it may be good to visit your doctor, and have it examined, so it can be proactively treated. Pus is never a good sign, and indicates infection starting. Make sure you aren't eating foods you're allergic to as well.
