Sores that drain: Bacterial infection of hair follicles can cause nodular, red painful lesions that open and drain. Bacterial infections must be treated with antibiotics.

Open sores, will not heal?

Open sores, will not heal?

Considerations: The real question is what not to do that slows down healing. Avoid using alcohol, peroxide, hibiclens, betadine, and bleach solutions.

Cover the area with a clean dressing changed every other day and protected from trauma. Antibiotics do not help healing unless it is truly infected. ...Read more
