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.

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?
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
3 painful bumps on my pernium. Not blisters, oozing, or cauliflower like, not crusting or scabbing, or forming a head, burns during urination?
Cellulitis: Painful bumps indicate inflammation, most likely infectious from skin bacteria. Put some Polysporin (bacitracin and polymyxin) ointment on them and take ibuprofen for a couple of days. You should also disk these with Epson salt. If no improvement in 2 days, see your doctor for a quick exam and assessment. You may need a course of antibiotic to treat. ...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
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

The area should be kept clean and watched for redness or swelling that would indicate a secondary bacterial infection. Covering the area is fine but the site should be watched. The ooze does not spread poison ivy. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
