thanks for using just answer
i will be glad to be of assistance
what you are describing sounds like bacterial infection of the skin called furuncle.
is there a photo you could post here?
yes give me a moment Ill get one
if you cannot, please do let me know.
i can just one more moment
i will wait
it kinda looks like a scar now since i popped it a while ago
originally i thought it was an ingrown hair, due ti ots darker color and the fact it went away
thanks for the photo
but after shaving again the same spot was red again
its definitely a bacterial infection, which got irritated again after shaving.
how do i cure it?
ok thank god
i would recommend that you can apply neosporin cream over it twice a day.
I am only sexually active with one person for years. So i was scared and didnt know what do and i didnt want to confront her thinking she gave me something if she wasnt cheating
ok how long till it goes away you think? Can it again return?
putting a triple antibiotic ointment would actually aggravate the bacteria as it contains a steroid cream.
i thought neo sporin is triple antibiotic ointment?
thats what i use
no,its not acquired sexually
triple antibiotic ointment contains a steroid cream called cortisone, an antifungal cream and neosporin
how long till it heals? Will it return again?
it will heal in a week.
ok i started neosporin yesterday
it may not return again, however sometimes due to shaving, the bacteria gain entry into the skin through some erosion.
in the same place?
that causes this, that place is already susceptible.
hence it can happen in the same place.
ok. Thank you!!! I am so relieved!
what if it isnt gone in a week?
could it then be something else?
it will go away, in case it doesnt you can use bactroban cream twice a day.
it doesnt seem to be anything else right now
please dont worry.
ok thank you. So if still there in a week, then use bactroban?
ok thank you so much have a great day!
