Dental abscess?

If a lump is in the gums (not on the inside nor the outside of the cheeks), and it swells with pus and then breaks open, it can be a tooth abscess. An abscess from the root of a tooth can spread to the gum surface and appear as a pustule. A dentist can evaluate to see if that is the problem.

Not really!

Eczema causes dry, course, rough, darkened skin, but not really postules, unless you get an infection!

Maybe folliculitis

Folliculitis is a condition that presents with tiny pustules at the roots of the hairs. It is particularly common on hairly areas that sweat a lot, such as chest and buttocks in men, and the skin folds (groin, armpits). There are effective topical and by mouth treatments

 Acne Bacteria Bacterial infections Facial pimples Folliculitis Infection Pimples Pustule Red pustules Red skin Rosacea Skin

See your derm

Adult acne seems to be increasingly common and can cause red pustules and marks on the skin. Rosacea can also do this, as well as bacterial infections such as folliculitis. Depending on the cause, there are almost certainly good treatments, so seeing your doctor will allow you to get a diagnosis and treatment, which may include topical creams and possibly oral medicines.

I have a lot of red pustules, could it be razor burns or the start of ingrown hairs?

Either, or Worse

Either could cause the red pustules or you may have gotten infected hair follicles or skin glands, which may require medication. Do not reuse the razor, since if it is an infection, you can spread it to other areas. If the razor is causing burn or ingrown hairs, then it is dull and needs to be replaced. Keep the area clean, use antibacterial cream, warm compresses, but see doc if worse.

There are two types

Herpes comes in two viruses. One is Type one (used to be called simplex or 'oral' herpes) and Type Two (used to be called 'genital' herpes). You only get herpes in one location. The same infection does not move or migrate. It sure sounds like you also have Herpes Type One. I would advise a blood test to prove or disprove this.

Depends on cause

Is it there all the time? Any pimples/pustules? Any fine blood vessels showing? Could be sun exposure, reaction to soap/perfume/lotion/ shampoo/hair color; acne; rosacea; lupus; flushing from niacin; seborrheic dermatitis. See PCP or dermatologist for evaluation & options for treatment.

Leave it alone

If you hadn't popped the pimple in the first place it would be gone by now. I know how hard it is to leave pimples alone, but you'll be surprised how much less "angry" your face looks when you use your prescribed treatment and keep your hands off. I tell all my patients, "Your face is not on strike, you don't have to pick it."

Types of acne

Acne can be whiteheads, blackheads, papules (red bumps), pustules (like the folliculitis pustule) and or cystic deep acne. Folliculitis is just a hair follicle that is infected and pustule means that particular follicle also had pus. So this is just a form of acne
