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.

Not likely: however if you have a severe reaction, your lymph nodes may enlarge as an immune response to the exposure. Consider seeing your doctor to get a potent topical or even oral steroid.
