Hurt yourself??: It sounds like you may have hurt yourself, either like when biting or brushing and it is healing.

A primary care doctor or a dermatologist can evaluate and make a diagnosis. The doctors can prescribe oral antibiotics, antifungals, or creams/ointments as needed. Sometimes, bacteria are resistant to antibiotics. ...Read more

Eyelid: This is likely a hordeolum or a cholazion. These are types of infection to your eye lid. The first therapy is a warm moist compress. The primary problem is an infected duct to the lash or a gland called a meobian gland. If you do not get a response to this in a day or so get checked. You may need an antibiotic ointment. ...Read more

Got a rash after using the intuition razor (the one with the soap already on there) could this be an allergic reaction or razor bumps. What can I do to get rid of them ?

Got a rash after using the intuition razor (the one with the soap already on there) could this be an allergic reaction or razor bumps. What can I do to get rid of them ?

Keep area clean: The reaction is most likely an irritant reaction from the razor. Depending on the area of the bumps, i would just try keeping the area clean with soap and water first. If it was bad and would not go away, you could try an over the counter Hydrocortisone cream. I would not use this treatment on the face or private areas. ...Read more

Staph infection: At worst, if they are real red pustules, they could be a topical staph infection. If they are skin colored small bumps, and you have a few on the other arm in the same place, it's a genetic condition called "hyperkeratosis pilaris". Creams help temporarily but do not cure or remove it. You may need to have somebody look at it to tell the difference. ...Read more
