Flesh coloured bumps on face and Pores refill with white stringey pus even after squeezing until they've turned into a spot but then they scar?

Seems like acne. Pic?: If this occurs along your face, it's best to have a picture at the ready. It's hard to make the diagnosis based on your limited description here. Use HealthTap Prime or go to your regular doctor / dermatologist when one of these bumps appears, so they can look at it & make a diagnosis.

Hidradenitis: This abnormality of the apocrine sweat glands is typically confined to the areas of the arm pits and the groins. It sounds like another problem if it is outside of these areas.

On my pubic area I've had a spot for over 2 months. It's big and red/purple. Lots of blood and smelly pus comes out. Should I see a doctor?

Yes. See a doc: It sounds like this could be a localized Staph infection - and you definitely should have proper treatment to prevent complications and to get rid of this once and for all. Staph likes to live in that area... and it forms pus too. It's a nasty germ through and through. If you see an ID doc, they will probably be best suited to help. I'd start by calling your primary doc though and try to be seen. ...Read more
