No, none
Dermatologist: Dr. Pravin, Dermatologist replied 2 years ago

Thank you so much for the reply.

this is called folliculitis which is the inflammation and infection of the hair follicle. This is caused by bacteria and causes this painful bump in the skin .

You can control it with intake of Oral Tylenol available OTC to reduce the inflammation and the pain.

You can apply Neosporin ointment on the area three times a day for 10 days.

In case it does not reduce with this method you may need to take an oral prescription antibiotic for 5 days.

Do let me know if you have any further queries.

Thank you. I'm already on doxycycline for something else. Will that help?
Dermatologist: Dr. Pravin, Dermatologist replied 2 years ago

Yes , you would need to continue with the doxycycline along with the what I have mentioned.

It would help it heal.

I have released the rating service application on your page.

Please do leave me a feedback for my opinion provided.

I don't have Neosporin ointment in my country or any OTC antibiotic ointment. Any alternatives? Would an antiseptic ointment work?
Dermatologist: Dr. Pravin, Dermatologist replied 2 years ago

You can use the antiseptic Paraderm Plus twice a day as suggested in place of Neosporin.

Do let me know if you have any further queries.

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.
