Pimple in ear still has blood coming from it? I am applying fucidin cream on it that doctor prescribed. Does this mean it's healing?

Pimple in ear still has blood coming from it? I am applying fucidin cream on it that doctor prescribed. Does this mean it's healing?

The "pimple": Was obviously "vascular" (contained blood vessels) If the bleeding continues your Doctor may need to cauterize it (stop the bleeding) The fucidin cream will help prevent an infection but will not by itself stop the bleeding...if normal clotting doesn't do it get back to that Doctor!

Hope this helps!

After shaving my beard I always get some red pimples on my neck "submandibular area".My friend advice me to use Fucidin cream. Is it useful for my case?

After shaving my beard I always get some red pimples on my neck "submandibular area".My friend advice me to use Fucidin cream. Is it useful for my case?

Maybe not.: Fucidin is for bacterial infection. If you develop (bacterial) folliculitis after shave, Fucidin might help.
But if you have an irritation from razor blade, cortisone cream might do a better job.
Or you may have a condition called pseudofolliculitis (caused by ingrown hair), a chronic stubborn problem, you'd better seek for dermatologist help, it's a little complicated (to treat). ...Read more

I have cystic acne and on lymecycline antibiotics and Fucidin H topical cream, the cyst aren't going down how do I get rid of them?

I have cystic acne and on lymecycline antibiotics and Fucidin H topical cream, the cyst aren't going down how do I get rid of them?

Lumps: Hi,
Look for small relative changes. If you do not see any week after week, your treatment is simply not adequate and inform your doctor.

If the lumps don't go down in the coming weeks, feel free to contact me anytime. This condition is never easy and often riddled with failure. Be prepared for this possibility emotionally, but look for those relative changes.

Spironlactone: For adult women the best acne treatment is the anti-androgen spironolactone. Usually 100mg orally. Expect clearing in 3 months. Not if pregnant or in kidney failure. If very severe acne and insufficient response to spironolactone, 5 months of oral isotretinoin, probably at 80mg a day, will rescue you. Not if pregnant. Acne is related to hormones, menstrual cycles, genetics. Not diet or hygiene or ...Read more

I am suffering an acne problem on my buttock area, which I apply Fucidin for several days, I don't have diabetes, hygiene is good, what is the cause?

Could be many things: An outbreak of acne like rash on the buttocks can happen from a variety of causes. Excessive sweating even with good hygiene can promote bacterial infection and the types of bacteria that can cause this are treated differently. The Fucidin cream you are applying doesn't help adequately and you may need an oral antibiotic. ...Read more

Can ketoderm 2% cream be used on pimples?

Bad choice: This is ketoconazole for fungal infections. It's not appropriate for acne. If topical benzoyl peroxide as tolerated has not cleared you in two weeks, get with your personal physician. Acne can't be cured but will eventually remit on its own. Until then, you must manage it as a chronic illness. ...Read more

Would it be bad to use fluocinonide cream on pimples?

Would it be bad to use fluocinonide cream on pimples?

VERY bad: This will relieve inflammation but also invite the bacteria that cause the pimples to spread deeper into the tissues. You are asking for an intractable deep-tissue bacterial infection. Please forgive my frankness. In our dysfunctional health care system, it's hard for people to get acne treated, though treatment is simple -- I start youngsters on topical clindamycin. ...Read more

Can I use Fucidin cream 2% on diaper rash if it has open soars?

Can I use Fucidin cream 2% on diaper rash if it has open soars?

Not for fungus: Most diaper rashes are fungal in origin and Fucidin cream is an antibiotic so it would not necessarily help the rash unless there was a bacterial component to it, irregardless of any open sores. If the open sores are infected, this cream can help and may also help prevent them from getting infected. Get the rash diagnosed to assure the best treatment if it persists. Good luck to you. ...Read more

Doctors, please advice me a suitable cream or ointment, which can cure me from my face pimples....

Benzoyl peroxide: I see you have already begun rx. Topical benzoyl peroxide & topical Clindamycin are a good start, but many men need to add a systemic antibiotic such as tetracycline 500 2x/day. If it's quite severe, a dermatologist may offer you accutane; it's not pleasant & has some risks but it is very much worth it if simple rx fails. Good luck. ...Read more

I'm facing severe pimples on my face, I kept many creams kindly suggest me the good and genuine solution to my problems?

Many options.: Begin with benzoyl peroxide. It's effective and well tolerated for most people. Start with a low strength and increase if needed. With stubborn acne, add a second product with a different active ingredient, such as salicylic acid, alpha-hydroxy acid, or sulfur. But do see a dermatologist; in the long run it's way cheaper than trying all those "miracle" non-prescription concoctions. ...Read more
