Just a thought: Might be a HERPES SIMPLEX ("Cold Sore") with infection (thus the pus) Suggest you check this out and in the meantime apply wet compresses and a anti-bacterial ointment (ask Pharmacist for recommendation) If it is herpes more SPECIFIC anti-VIRAL medication may be indicated!

History of cold sore: ? Without a picture it's difficult to know exactly what type of lesions you have.

Infection or bite?: A mosquito bite is usually somewhat itchy, and then I suggest cool compresses and an oral antihistamine like Benadryl (diphenhydramine) or Zyrtec, etc. To cut down on the itch.

Wash with soap and water and keep the area dry, and get care if you develop multiple pimples or particularly large ones, or if not better in a few days. And no shaving the next 2-3 weeks. ...Read more
