Pus Bumps On Face
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?
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

Sometimes there is some dead cells and other "foreign" material there that will dry up and come out (as in a comedone) by itself. In a few cases, the material forms a "cyst" and needs to be cut out by a surgeon. ...Read more
