I have had a planters wart on the bottom/outside portion of my foot for several years. What could've caused quite a bit of puss to come out of it now?
Undermining: Perhaps the area undermined a little bit - which could happen if you've been on your feet ALOT and not taking care of yourself?? I would show this to a doctor, since you don't want to neglect a foot infection. If you have a photo or something, that would help here on Health Tap -since it's virtual. A podiatrist could probably help you at this stage. I would call today to make an appointment. ...Read more

Molluscum?: Hard white core sounds like molluscum contagiosum, a minor sexually transmissible viral infection. It's especially likely if the bumps are shiny pink and if some have dimples in the center. Or maybe folliculitis (hair follicle inflammation) from shaving. Google MC (spell it out) for photos and more info, and see your doctor for confirmation and treatment. Also need testing for other common STDs. ...Read more
I have a spot on the palm of my hand. At first I thought it could be a bite/wart but it looks full of yellow puss. What is it and how can I get rid?
Small infection: Maybe you got poked by something? Maybe with a little splinter underneath the skin? If have multiple on palms as well as other areas of skin, call doc for eval asap as it could mean systemic illness such as gonorrhea etc..If just only one, get a clean needle, clean area with rubbing alcohol and lancet/open it to allow draining of the puss. Then keep clean, dry should do it. Consult doc. Good luck. ...Read more

The wart will soften and peel off. Some require liquid nitrogen or laser treatments. ...Read more

All teens should be vaccinated. ...Read more
