Hello, welcome to the site! My name is***** will try to assist you with your medical question and any medical information you seek.
What you are experiencing is called folliculitis
It is due to inflammation around the hair follicles
This may require antibiotics to treat it, if it is not treated it may become more painful and red
Usually amoxicillin is sufficient
I got this before a couple of times already. I dislike it and it is irritating. I took it off last time by burning it off with a creme and toothepaste. It is just in the center are of my mustache area. I don't have hair there so I don't know what causes this
You don't need to have hair there to have a hair follicle there
It is from inflammation of a hair follicle
So what medicine can I buy to treat it? So it isnt warts right?
No, it is not warts
Where can I find Amoxicillin?
It requires a prescription by a doctor
You may try neosporin ointment or cream as well
It may help
Placing a warm washcloth over it twice daily may also help
I can't find it without a doctors prescription? Is there any thing elsse that I can apply?
Okay thank you. I will try neosporin and a warm cloth
Neosporin may be obtained OTC
You're quite welcome
How long will it take to go away after applying neosporin
It may take 5 days
Will it leave a mark? Because last time I had this my mustache area was left with a red scar
It may leave a marl, but it is less likely to leave a mark if you don't pick at it or try to burn it off
Okay because I have been applying makeup and coverup and it seems to make it look worst
I would avoid applying anything over it like make up
Alright thank you so much do you know the price range for neosporin
It is less than $10
Thank you. I can find it at any pharmacy such as cvs or rite aid right
Yes, any pharmacy
I looked up folliculitis and it looks like nothing I have.
Then please post a picture of what you have
It showed pimple like things on the skin. I don't have pimple like things. I have a bunch of balls full of water together forming a patch
Please see my reply above
I don't know how to send a picture thru here
There is a link in your page that looks like a paper clip, click on it
I did and nothing came out. I ain't using mobile web not a computer
Do you see the paper clip?
and when you click on it what happens?
It just says to instert a url of the image but it doesn't give me the option to choose from my gallery
copy your image and paste it in the area that you type
I will be here waiting
I cannot copy and paste
It just basically looks like warts. I googled warts in mustache area and it looks just like the first image
I see, if it is warts then it will require liquid nitrogen to treat it
Did you look it up as well
So you can see the picture
No picture came up
Okay, I saw it
It is similar to the first image that came up but much smaller and not that color. Mines are see through
I feel like getting a needle and popping the balls. Water was coming out from it yestersay
So what do I do?
I know it isn't hiv warts because I don't have that
If they are warts then it requires liquid nitrogen
But if it isn't?
If it is not warts then it may require antibiotics, and you need to have it examined by a doctor
Are you there/
I'll be good then thank you
