My daughter has a bite on her foot. It's red and swollen with a brown dot in the middle. Put neosporin on it and don't see any pus coming out. Seems to be filled with fluid and is pretty large. Does she need to see a doctor? What can we do?

Difficult to advise: With wisdom from a distance, no photo, no dimensions (large?), no timeline, no background data. Sounds c/w an insect bite but too little information to offer much wisdom. The treatment sounds reasonable, lack of purulent discharge a good sign. Generally rupturing the blister (a body protective response) is not wise because this lets in skin bacteria/potential pathogens. ...Read more

I just had brain surgery there is pus coming out in some spots is that normal?

Absolutely not: Pus in a surgical wound means infection and this is never good. It needs attention right away. However, I have had many patients tell me that they have pus coming out of an incision from my surgery but upon close inspection it is merely postoperative drainage that is very common and normal. Nevertheless, get it looked at especially if it is red, painful, and you have fevers all signs of infection. ...Read more

Is pus coming out of cold sore okay?

Pus?: Cold sores will drain fluid, sometimes purulent. Normally they will form a dry scab after a few days and heal after 5 to 10 days. Topicals are not worth discussion. Valacyclovir 2Grams at prodrome [initial tingling before the blister] will modify the attack, sometimes abort it. Oral acyclovir will also work but may require much larger dose. ...Read more

The blister on my heel pop said there's pus coming out of it what do I do to keep from getting infected?

If there is pus...: It already is infected. It needs to be drained and cleaned for the infection to go away. If it spreads into the deeper tissue, you will need to take an antibiotic to get rid of it. Use warm water soaks with some epsom salts, dish soap, or even a splash of vinegar (most bacteria aren't that tolerant of an acid environment). Keep the pus draining out of the hole that's already there. ...Read more
