Treatment often consists of aggressive daily hygeine with antibacterial scrubs and potentially a nasal or oral antibiotic as well to reduce recurrence rates. A family doc, internist or dermatologist can diagnose and treat this condition. ...Read more

May need antibiotics: Rashes are difficult to describe in words. If a person has recurrent pimples on places where regular acne doesn't occur, he likely has infection in skin glands and/or hair follicles. A primary care doctor or a dermatologist can look at the skin and make a diagnosis. The doctors can prescribe oral antibiotics or creams/ointments as needed. Sometimes the bacteria are resistant to antibiotics. ...Read more

Is it serious to have a pea sized lump on the outer part of the vaginal lip? It itches and after a few days I squeezed it and brown pus came out.

No: This is a very common occurrence, which is simply an inclusion or sebaceous cyst and what came out was not pus but sebum, like a whitehead on your face. See these all the time in my clinic. Can drain or excise them if desired for cosmetic or comfort reasons but no risk in leaving them alone. ...Read more

"lumps"/vag lips: The vaginal lips have mucus secreting areas, and when blocked, can become painful or even infected. There is no "sure" way to prevent this, but warm/hot baths, and regular hygienic measures will assist. See your gyn provider for an exam and advice. ...Read more

I had a lump on my breast, I panicked and squeezed it and white/yellow pus came out and it won't stop bleeding!? What do I do, ?

Will stop soon.: It seems that you had a furuncle that you popped. The bleeding will stop soon. You can apply a band aid to help it to stop bleeding or apply pressure with a sterile piece of gauze to help stop the bleeding quicker. You should watch the lesion, if gets more red and sore you will need to be seen for treatment with antibiotics. ...Read more

I have a spot above my right eye it's a hard lump underneath I squeezed it pus and blood come out but now it's really painful. Isit something else?

See doctor ASAP: You don't say how large the lump is, or whether other symptoms are present. If in doubt, best to see a doctor soon. Do it immediately (even if it means an emergency department or urgent care clinic visit) if you have fever or if there spreading redness of the skin of the forehead, around the eye, etc. This is a potentially very dangerous site for an untreated infection. ...Read more

I have a purple lump near my groin. I did squeeze it but onky blood came out at first. My skin does cover it could it be to do with being hot or moist?

Lump: It sounds like this is a lymph node or an abscess formation. I would have a physician evaluate this. I do not recommend poping this as this can cause a potential infection, and potentially cellulitis. If it is an abscess, usually a hot towel to the skin can promote it to drain on its own. ...Read more
