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.

Use drying agents: White bumps may be filled with either thick skin oil, and less likely they are filled with pus. Pus is made of dead white blood cells and are a sign of infection.

Regardless, if you want these addressed, you must find a local physician to evaluate and treat you. ...Read more

Pimple.: Just because you did not get pus, does not mean this is not an inflamed papule or pimple. The body can produce intense inflammation in the skin, and that can be seen as a papule (red bump) or pustule (pus-filled bump). If there is no pustule, do not attempt to squeeze or manipulate it as this can create further increased inflammation. Try using an over-the-counter acne remedy. ...Read more
