I have a spot on the palm of my hand. At first I thought it could be a bite/wart but it looks full of yellow puss. What is it and how can I get rid?

Small infection: Maybe you got poked by something? Maybe with a little splinter underneath the skin? If have multiple on palms as well as other areas of skin, call doc for eval asap as it could mean systemic illness such as gonorrhea etc. If just only one, get a clean needle, clean area with rubbing alcohol and lancet/open it to allow draining of the puss. Then keep clean, dry should do it. Consult doc. Good luck. ...Read more

Hand foot and mouth on two year old. A week in and still spreading. Looks terrible, a lot like a burn on his face where sores used to be. What to do?

Hand foot and mouth on two year old. A week in and still spreading. Looks terrible, a lot like a burn on his face where sores used to be. What to do?

Secondary Impetigo?: Poor baby! It can certainly cause severe pain and mouth/throat sores. But a week in he should have some improvement, not worsening. The spreading on his face late in the course makes me think he may have a secondary impetigo infection. I would try neosporin topically on it today, if the face rash worsens by tomorrow, he needs to be seen for a visit. If he has fever, visit today. ...Read more
