Customer Question

4 months ago I used a relatives razor on my upper lip. I kicked the skin. Shortly after I started getting these cleat fluid filled bumps that are kind of hard and itchy on the side of my nose. Seemed like it was doing better and now on other side of nose. They don't really ooze but do kind of scab over. Just when it looks better, they start again. I've used lotrimin, abx ointment and cortizone. Nothing really helps. The sun maybe made it a bit better. Again it is itchy and kind of red. Doesn't really heal up.

You need to see a dermatologist or your doctor about this.

This can be staph infection.

It would not clear up with the medicines you have used

Psoriasis is another possibility

Mupiricin would be needed.for staph.

Glad to look at a picture here.

OK, so that is an initial answer….
