Infected pimple healed weeks ago & skin closed, but still a quarter-sized, slightly swollen, slightly painful red/purple spot (no open skin). Need Dr?
Healing Inflammation: The redness/purpleness of a healed abscess (skin infection) can take a few months to resolve. The skin will remain firm, slightly tender and have a purple/red color for some time after the infection itself has healed. This is the scar tissue healing and settling. If the area back tracks and get swollen, hot and tender again, you will need to see a doctor. Hang in there. ...Read more

I think I have an infected pimple, it's really red and swollen and angry and has seemingly endless amounts of puss. Is swimming in a lake w this safe?
No.: Any time you have an opening in your skin, this gives the bacteria in your environment a chance to enter your body and causes infection or worsen your current infection. The lake water is not bacteria free. I recommend staying out of the lake if you have a pimple full of puss as you described. Wait till it heals. If the pimple is getting worst, a doctor will needs to see it to help you. ...Read more
I have what started out as a pimple and seems to be infected. It's right where my legs rub and it is swollen and warm to the touch.
Infection = Doctor: If it's infected, the best idea is to see your provider. It may be quite easy to clear up - but it's not a D.I.Y. project - you'll probably need a Rx. Do it soon so it doesn't become more complicated by spreading. Hope it goes well. Clean, cool (ice pack) compresses may reduce discomfort till you get treated. ...Read more

(1 month) swollen lymph nodes under my jaw, some pimple like spots on my tonsil. When I swallow, my ear feels itchy. Taken doxycycline but no use.
Get checked: Get checked by a ENT for your throat, your tonsil, and your ear. Get checked by a dentist to see if there an abscess related to a tooth. Lower teeth infections frequently drain to the lymph nodes. Appropriate AB will typically have a positive effect in 3-4 days. Only testing will identify an appropriate remedy for the infection. ...Read more

A good history: A good social and medical history would be helpful to try to pinpoint what you may have. It is certainly likely that you have a cold sore, but I am more inclined to believe that you have a simple pimple in that area. I have seen several like this, they tend to get very red, no visible head on the skin surface, and very painful. ...Read more
