I have skin on my nose that keeps oozing, what could it be? About every 3 or 4 months i get a patch of skin on my nose that starts to ooz badly, it's not always the exact same area of skin, it oozes clear liquid and then it seems to kind of blister and th

It : It sounds like an infectious etiology. Perhaps you are dealing with impetigo, which is a bacterial skin infection. It causes sores that often break open, ooze fluid, and then develop a yellow to brown crust. They are most commonly found around the mouth and nose. It can recur. If this occurs again you can try an over the counter anti-bacterial cream to the affected area two to three times a day. Finally, this may not be the iisue at all, it is always a good idea to let your doctor evaluate you, make a diagnosis, and treat. Take care. ...Read more

I applied Neosporin to an incision per my doctors instruction. I now have red burning skin that has small oozing blisters. Is there something I can do?

I applied Neosporin to an incision per my doctors instruction. I now have red burning skin that has small oozing blisters. Is there something I can do?

Hard to know: A bit more information would help, but it seems that either a serious infection has developed and you need a course of antibiotics or you have a contact allergic sensitivity to a component of the neosporin (relatively common). Has this happened with neosporin before? If the latter, then topical corticosteroid may help (but it would not if this is an infection). Good luck! ...Read more

Skin eruption: Without seeing this would only be guessing, but contact dermatitis is possible as is a systemic allergic reaction. Staphylococcal scalded skin syndrome occurs, as does strep pyogenes infection. Go and let a doctor take a look at this and manage it appropriately. Best wishes. ...Read more

I have really bad and big blisters from running a race yesterday and they are still oozing pus. Should I bandage them or let them air out? They hurt

I have really bad and big blisters from running a race yesterday and they are still oozing pus. Should I bandage them or let them air out? They hurt

Blisters: If your blisters are actually draining pus, thick yellow material then you need to see a doctor. If it is a blood blister then you need to make sure to clean them up with soap and water. I would keep them wrapped as they need protection as well as keeping them clean. I would recommend buying "adaptic" dressing as it will keep the gauze from sticking. ...Read more

Covering the area is fine but the site should be watched.The ooze does not spread poison ivy. ...Read more
