What is the white stuff that comes out of a spider bite before the oozing pus. Its more lumpy than actual pus. Once that stuff comes drainage is worse?
Not a spider bite: Did you see and feel the spider attack? Did you take the spider to a genuine expert for identification? If not, you have something else. Your description is not concordant with venomous spider bite. In fact, USA spider bites are RARE and mostly confined to the southwestern states. See a better Dr. ...Read more

I have really bad and big blisters from running a race yesterday and they are still oozing pus. Should I bandage them or let them air out? They hurt
Blisters: If your blisters are actually draining pus, thick yellow material then you need to see a doctor. If it is a blood blister then you need to make sure to clean them up with soap and water. I would keep them wrapped as they need protection as well as keeping them clean. I would recommend buying "adaptic" dressing as it will keep the gauze from sticking. ...Read more

Prescribed steroid cream for my rash. Didn't realize until after applying, it had pus oozing from it. I wiped it off and applied peroxide. Is this ok?
Pus oozing rash: It depends on the cause of your rash. If you were given the steroid to help treat a skin irritant like posien Ivy, then the oozing is not infectious and the peroxide was not helpful. If on the other hand the rash got infected, it would be red, warm, tender and may ooze, then yes, peroxide and triple topical antibiotic like neosporin would be helpful. If so, you should contact your doc. ...Read more

My lip has been oozing pus, and no amount of Vaseline keeps my lips from feeling irritated. They're red, and has red dots lining the edges.
Depends on why: A doctor can examine the lips to see why they are inflamed.

A topical steroid such as hydrocortisone cream and a topical antimicrobial (to stop viruses, bacteria, or yeast) may be needed. ...Read more

Scabies.: Eurex application would be appropriate for scabies, which is typically intensely itchy. With pus, though, it sounds like you may have a bacterial superinfection. I'd have to see it to be sure, but that sounds a little more involved than just scabies. Not worrisome, just curious. ...Read more

Could be dry: It's less likely allergy or infection due to lack of symptom except the redness and dryness. You may have dry eye on that side. Just be careful with hand and eye hygiene if in case is a viral conjuctivitis that way you will not spread to other eye or others. Use artificial tears, heat pack and baby shampoo wash the lashes. If after couple of days it does not go away then see an eye doc. ...Read more
