Dr. Shahzad MD :

Hi there. Thank you for your question. I will be helping you out with your queries

Dr. Shahzad MD :

Most likely with what you are mentioning its what is called as a furuncle.

Dr. Shahzad MD :

Furuncle is a deep infection of the hair follicle.

Dr. Shahzad MD :

It results in a small abscess formation.

Dr. Shahzad MD :

Usually treatment with topical antibiotic cream like neosporin with warm compresses helps resolves it.

Dr. Shahzad MD :

Its important to drain the abscess when you can for full recovery.

Dr. Shahzad MD :

This is something very common and usually does resolve with treatment at home.

Dr. Shahzad MD :

if, however, symptoms do not resolve, I would recommend that you should be seen and as you may require this to be drained at the doctor's office.

Dr. Shahzad MD :

Let me know if you have more questions.
