If it is or was a pustule, your manipulation will cause a cellulitis to develop around the lesion thus preventing it from resolving. See your doctor because it may need to be treated with an antibiotic. ...Read more

Boil like bumps thaat pop and white pus coimes out plus they are sore. Nose is swollen and bleeds every now and then I don't know waht to do?

See A Physician?: From reading what you wrote, I do not know where these "bumps" are located, or how long this situation has been going on. However, if your nose is actually swollen, not from blowing your nose frequently, but truly swollen, that is not normal. The bleeding can be a myriad of reasons, from simple dry-air in the winter, to more difficult things to diagnose over the internet. Saline spray may help. ...Read more

What is this red bump on the tip/middle of my nose? The bump is raised and has no pus in it. The bump has been on my face for about 2 weeks now.

Pimple.: Just because you did not get pus, does not mean this is not an inflamed papule or pimple. The body can produce intense inflammation in the skin, and that can be seen as a papule (red bump) or pustule (pus-filled bump). If there is no pustule, do not attempt to squeeze or manipulate it as this can create further increased inflammation. Try using an over-the-counter acne remedy. ...Read more

Leave it alone: It is not a good idea to squeeze pimples on the face as you can force the infection into blood vessels that are connected to the blood vessels in the brain. If you wish to "pop" a pimple, use warm fomentation. Leave the squeezed pimple alone and let it heal by itself. ...Read more

No miracles . . .: Go see your Family Doc or Dermatologist. On rare occasions, s/he can lance boil & perhaps inject corticosteroid to minimize inflammation (although this isn't w/o risk). Bottom line, there's no pill to magically make it disappear overnight. Sorry! ...Read more
