JA: Have you seen a doctor about this yet? What medications are you taking?

Hi, this Dr Ansari. Welcome to JustAnswer.

This may be an infected encapsulated one, you have poped it, if possible you can share the picture for evaluation.

Thank you for getting back to me. It didn’t pop like a spot, I put a pin in and just blood came out, how do I attach a picture?

please ask customer help.

ok, I understand you puncture it. Only blood or pus also came?

Customer: replied 14 days ago.
Just blood

You have to put an antibiotic ointment like fucidin on the spot and do a dressing. Take oral tablet-like Ibuprofen 400 mg 3 times after meals for 5dyas. Do dressing every other day.

Unlike to be a tumour.

I’ll try and attach photo


Customer: replied 14 days ago.
Attached some photos

Oh you have removed it I can see raw skin there

You have to put the fucidin ointment over that nap and on all bumps. This bump which you have punctured should be dressed daily and covered from all sides.

Customer: replied 14 days ago.
The little pimple is still there but I have scratched around it

Yes, I saw it.

Customer: replied 14 days ago.
Is it nothing to worry about tumor wise then?

yes, nothing to worry about tumour wise.
