I can not talk on the phone at this moment, can we type instead
Dermatologist: Dr Uzair, Doctor replied 4 months ago

You can apply cortisporin cream over both the areas to reduce the swelling and to treat the pimple as it contains bot steroid to reduce swelling as well as antibiotics to treat infection. Cold compresses would reduce redness and swelling.

Ok what kind of cortisporin cream should I buy?
Customer reply replied 4 months ago
Also should I go into the dermatologist office and get a shot into the blind pimples?
Dermatologist: Dr Uzair, Doctor replied 4 months ago

Thanks for the reply.

It is better if you can see a dermatologist for examination and quick remedy. It comes by the name cortisporin itself.

Dermatologist: Dr Uzair, Doctor replied 4 months ago

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.

Can I talk to derm and submit pix? Terrible skin infection
Terrible skin infection been going on for six weeks. Started around mouth lips. Made my lips kind of peel even though they were covered with deep deep pimples. Finally got my lips cleared up and the infection moved on to other parts of my face. My chin, around the sides of my mouth. Also feel the infection deep inside my jaw and cheek bone. Also In my left ear and mastoid. Have had several mastoidectomies and have osteomyelitis of the skull bones. Have primary immune deficiency. Chronic infections. Cultures come up as clear. A skin biopsy has been sent out but it's not back yet. I'm fairly certain this is cystic acne that has just moved into other parts of my head. My ear nose and throat doctor has referred me to Infectious Disease. I have been on two rounds of IV anabiotic's which helped. But I made the problem worse… Bye… Don't judge me… By picking. Pic pic pic. Picking squeeze and pick and squeeze. It drove me crazy to have this shit all over my face. So now here it is six weeks later and I don't leave the house without a surgical mask because I look so disgusting. And I am on oral Keflex now which seems to be helping, but nobody knows with this infection is. But I was thinking today, that I hadn't talked to a dermatologist … read more
