Hello
I suggest his doctor swab this for the lab.
It is most likely an infected cyst, and can be staph.
In that case the doctor might prescribe mupiricin cream.
OK, so that is an initial answer….

I feel better already! Thank you.

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.

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
