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 have small bumps on face. What to do?

Acne: Tretinoin (retin-a, atralin, renova) is the mainstay of treatment for whiteheads and blackheads. Tretinoin is a derivative of vitamin a and works by increasing cell turnover and reducing the "stickiness" of the sloughed cells. It helps expel the plugged material returning the pore to normal. Tretinoin can be irritating, so specific instructions on how to use it can be found here. ...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

I.Had a boil whit no pus head it was a normal boil. It went down but left a hard lil bump under skin can boils do that it feel like a hard lil pea?

Yes, it can happen: After a boil heals up, there can be some scar tissue at the site. The firm bump is the scar, and it should soften and get smaller over the coming months. 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
