Wat is the red rash with little white or pus on my bf s legs?

Considering your description, it may be an abscess or cyst (but tough to tell without a picture). You should have your primary doctor or dermatologist actually take a look to better determine the diagnosis. Best wishes. ...Read more

I have a rash on my face, pus was coming out all night even on my pillow, I have to see my doctor on the 20th but I'm breastfeeding my 4 month old baby. I just want to make sure it's okay to breastfed her with what it seems an infection. Going to ER?

I have a rash on my face, pus was coming out all night even on my pillow, I have to see my doctor on the 20th but I'm breastfeeding my 4 month old baby. I just want to make sure it's okay to breastfed her with what it seems an infection. Going to ER?

Likely okay: The germ would not enter the breast milk unless you contaminated the feeding surfaces. If you wash your face and washed your hands again afterward it will be therapeutic and reduce contamination of the breast.You might blot the face with hydrogen peroxide & dry with a hair dryer.Peroxide kills staph on contact but wetness aggravates.I'd go to urgent care not an ER. ...Read more

Hi. I've been getting really painful, red, bumpy (sometimes pus-filled), sometimes itchy rashes in places and during times when I sweat more. Allergy?

Where?: If these lesions are found mainly at the armpits and groin areas, they are most likely from an inflammation of the sweat glands. Topical antiperspirant may help but a low-dose antibiotic may be required for many. If the lesions occur elsewhere, do let me know where. ...Read more

Little cut on leg no pus but rash with little bumps around it?

Little cut on leg no pus but rash with little bumps around it?

Using neosporin?: If you are using neosporin on your cut, you are likely having some allergic reaction to the neosporin--a very commom, yet overlooked condition. I would stop that, keep the skn/wpund dry with a little rubbing alcohol 3-4x/day for a few days and you should be good. If not better, call your doc. Good luck. ...Read more

My son is 11 and I noticed a rash around his navel 2 days ago. He also had some pus like discharge from around it. What is this and what can be done?

My son is 11 and I noticed a rash around his navel 2 days ago. He also had some pus like discharge from around it. What is this and what can be done?

Clean and apply AB: Make sure your son is cleaning the Naval area very well daily. This is commonly ignored area of the body. So it can accumulate dirt and sometimes gets inflamed so most likely commonsense cleaning and using OTC Antibiotic ointment will do the job. If itching can apply Benadryl (diphenhydramine) cream. And lastly get it checked by Pediatrician if not improved with this approach in 2 days. ...Read more
