Pea size bump on eyelid-no blisters but discharge&crusts,light hurt before.Is it HSV virus?Had HSV blisters-same eyelid(diff location)few weeks ago.

HSV likes stress: Herpes is a nasty virus, and takes advantage of us when we are 'weak' -such as after some kind of stress. Herpes also loves to come out in the same area -so it could well be HSV again. Sometimes a bacteria (Staph) will attack the eyelid-this would be a sty and is quite painful. If it's not getting better, I would show it to a doctor who could help with directed therapy: antiviral or antibacterial ...Read more

Broke out with bumps on face. Doc said fever blisters? They hurt. Itched & scabed over with gold crust scab. Has canker sore on lip also.

Two Problems: First, you have herpes. 75% of adults have this type of herpes. You can easily get this treated and then kept at bay with the appropriate anti-herpes medication.

Sudden Recurrent wound by upper lip. Itches, tingles, swells. Forms blister, crusts over, bleeds. Blood work & swab neg for hsv. What else could it be?

Still maybe herpes: This still sounds like herpes despite the negative test results. Up to 30% of people with HSV1 have negative blood tests for it, so that result doesn't mean much. Try another swab test when you have a fresh blister (within 2 days of onset), and make sure they do a PCR test, not culture. Good luck. ...Read more

How will peroxide/bacitracin  bth affect staph &or herpes or any  puss filled draining  sore on area above clitoris ...Started itchin then bump busted?

Depends: Peroxide will provide variable levels of killing for staph, and Bacitracin is an antibiotic against streptococcus; it has poor activity against staph. Neither will have any effect against herpes. If it was a boil you had, then the draining itself is probably therapeutic; if the redness/hard area extends, i would see a doctor for systemic antibiotics. ...Read more

Drain it: If you have no medical conditions like diabetes, etc, it is generally safe to drain a blister after 2-3 days to allow the skin underneath to develop. Use a clean needle soaked for 15 minutes in isopropyl alcohol. Drain, then cover with a sterile gauze pad and some antibiotic ointment. If discomfort doesn't resolve in a few days, if it becomes red or starts draining pus, see a podiatrist promptly. ...Read more
