My 3 year old has a puss filled spot on her hip and it has a perfectly round red spot around it. She has had these before. Dr. Says bugs bites.?

It's possible: The bedbugs might be the problem for it.
The child scratching the itching spots, might has infected the sites of the bites with the normally colonized bacterias on the skin, and this way it gets pus in it.
Of course without seen it, it's hard to tell exactly what is the problem. ...Read more

Infected skin absces: It sounds like you injured your leg or got bitten by something, or you have an underlying problem (like diabetes or smoking) which impairs the normal skin on your leg. You are young, so age is on your side - this will probably go away. Don't "pop" the white spot, but do see a doctor about what to do. Apply warm compresses if tolerable. Collect any fluid that comes out to check for MRSA or infx. ...Read more

This is a problem because the contents of an epidermoid cyst are very irritating to the tissue around the cyst. A ruptured cyst can get red, swollen, and painful. See your doctor and have the cyst removed. ...Read more

Depends: If you have engaged in unprotected sex you need to be checked for STD. However, if it had pus in it that you squeezed out then it most likely is a boil caused by staph or other bacteria. Use warm compresses to help draw out infection and it should heal. If it spreads or just gets worse or doesn't heal, see a doctor. And again, if you've had sex, even just a blow job, get checked for STD. ...Read more
