How can I stop ingrown hairs on my chest from happening? I don't pluck or shave. Anytime it ruptures I clean the pus but it always comes back.
Ingrown hair: If you are not plucking or shaving then you cannot stop it. You probably have curly hair because they become ingrown more easily. Most of the time people get these from shaving or trying to remove the hair. If you are not doing this then friction in the area may be the problem. Wash with benzoyl peroxide or apply this to the area may help. Do not rub or scrub the area or may cause the problem. ...Read more

Possible: The concern isn't so much that your son has MRSA (methicillin resistant staph aureus), but that he has a significant skin infection. MRSA has increased in incidence significantly, though is quite treatable in cases like this. Just as serious would be a strep or MSSA (methicillin sensitive...) infection. Take your son to the doctor ASAP. Clean it with warm water and mild soap. Do not squeeze! ...Read more

You don't say why you were started on these meds but it seems likely that this is a reaction to them. It might be AGEP. Whether it is or not I would stop them but ask if you need other antibiotics. I feel the risk of serious side effects are so great it should only be used as a last resort when no other good options exist. See http://tinyurl. Com/h2hsy4x

Sore throat with pus, coughing up green mucus, chest tightness, runny nose, and congestion. Any idea what I have? Tested neg for strep, on amoxicillin
Sore throat: One of the symptoms you have (sore throat) is likely pharyngitis. If you were placed on antibiotics it is because the medical provider wanted to cover for streptococcus, a common bacterial cause of pharyngitis. The test done in the office for strep is not always accurate, so you may still have it. Interestingly, not all causes of pharyngitis are bacterial. They can also be viral, fungal, etc. ...Read more
