I : I would recommend you see a dermatologist and get this analyzed. Perhaps you need a different antibiotic or treatment regimen. It might be a good idea to consider having either a culture performed or maybe a small biopsy if the diagnosis is in doubt in order to rule out other conditions.

Bactroban (mupirocin) : Sometimes use of Bactroban (mupirocin) Cream twice daily to the areas of bump on the face will help with the healing process if you had already been treated with systemic antibiotics for mrsa.
