On levaquin/clindamycin tons itchy pus bumps face neck chest only after start meds. Can be AGEP? ID doc said stop meds see if helps, right advice?

Possible, yes: You don't say why you were started on these meds but it seems likely that this is a reaction to them. It might be AGEP. Whether it is or not I would stop them but ask if you need other antibiotics. I feel the risk of serious side effects are so great it should only be used as a last resort when no other good options exist. See http://tinyurl. Com/h2hsy4x

Flesh coloured bumps on face and Pores refill with white stringey pus even after squeezing until they've turned into a spot but then they scar?

Seems like acne. Pic?: If this occurs along your face, it's best to have a picture at the ready. It's hard to make the diagnosis based on your limited description here. Use HealthTap Prime or go to your regular doctor / dermatologist when one of these bumps appears, so they can look at it & make a diagnosis. My impression is that you have cystic acne (or chloracne, which is rarer). I hope it works out well for you. ...Read more

I shaved my head, now I've developed a farm of white-pus filled bumps, there is a bump on the right back side of my head. What can this bump be?

Razor bumps?: Pseudofolliculitis barbae is a fancy word for razor bumps. More so in dark-skinned people, shaving closely with a razor can cause new very short hairs to grow down in to the skin, causing irritation. It's also possible to have an acne-type response to shaving, and it's possible to introduce infection as well. Warm compresses can be helpful, gentle cleansing with hypoallergenic soap. ...Read more
