hello,

it will be better to see the photos and diagnose your condition. would it be possible for you to send them?

you can also give me information on the size, shape,color of the lesions? Whether they are flat or raised? how do they start? where did they first start? how did it progress? any pus filled lesions? are you on any other medications?

Dear Sir,

blisters start as lumps under the skin which are raised and pale then develop into a pinprick scab which is still raised.they started on 9th may and subsided when took cetirizine and elocon ointment but flared up again when medication finished.I am not taking any other medication.There have been a couple of puss filled lesions but most are no,have taken some photos now and will send them if you need them

SORRY, THIS IS JUST NOT WORKING,TAKING TOO LONG AND IN TOO MUCH PAIN TO BE BOTHERED NOW.THANK-YOU.
Dermatologist: Dermadoc, Board Certified Dermatologist replied 8 years ago
hello,

i am sorry about the pictures.
its unfortunate that they could not be received.

according to your history, i can give you a probable diagnosis. you can meet up with your doctor and discuss this possibility with him.

i think these are furuncles which are bacterial infection.

you will need to take an oral antibiotic for it for 7 days.

antibiotic which can be safely taken is amoxicillin and cloxacillin combination and you need to apply fucidin cream over the lesions twice daily for 10 days. you will need to stop the elocon cream.

continue cetrizine.

hope this answer was useful. please click on the green accept button if so. any bonus or positive feedback would be appreciated.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
