My husband noticed a small cut on his skin three days ago.

Customer Question

My husband noticed a small cut on his skin three days ago. Tonight he noticed there's now a bump that looks filled with pus on that same area. What could it be and should he go to the doctor? (I'm worried about staph or MRSA.) Also, can I catch it?

Do I need to do anything else in order to get an answer? I hope you can see the photos this time. I did post one last night right after posting my initial question but maybe that didn't work? Please let me know if there's anything else I need to do on my end. Thanks so much!

I would still like an answer to this question from any dermatologist please. When I log in, it says dermatologists are online, but I can't seem to get an answer. Am I doing something wrong?

May I cancel this question and get an answer from a different dermatologist please?
