Pus Head Appears On The Boil
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
I had a boil in November on the lower back of my head, bad-smelling clear pus came out when I squeezed it, then it healed. Now I have a reddish raised bump in that spot. What could this be/what should be done, if anything?
