I dont think there's anything relevant in my medical history

After I treat it, it forms a large dark red blood blister which comes off and I can see the white puss...

Thanks for sharing

This seems infected with pus over it

You need to use an antibiotic for this

You have to keep it clean and avoid using any acne cream over it

It require Flucloxacillin

Please do let me know if you have any other question
