Hi for the skin problem under my eye I have a operation on Monday . Do get it removed . But next to me nose I have this new problem , looks like infected . What can I do ,
Customer: replied 9 days ago.
I am taking already antibiotics

You have a furuncle near the nose. It’s a large pimple.  Apply a hot compress to it for 5 minutes several times a day.  Hopefully that will allow it to drain spontaneously.  If not a doctor may need to lance it to get the pus out.

What antibiotics are you on?

Customer: replied 9 days ago.
Flucloxacillin 500mg

That’s a great antibiotic for skin infections.  Stay on that and use the hot compresses.
