hard bump on face
I have a hard bump on my face.  I get these periodically.  sometimes when I squeeze them I get puss and blood and other times it is just blood.  They are very sore and swollen/red.  What is this and how can I treat it.

Thanks

Hello,
It can be an infected hair follicle or a sebaceous cyst. Please keep the area clean and apply some topical antiseptics. Also use an antibacterial soap or mild soap like dove. Avoid any kind of cosmetics. Topical antibiotics such as mupirocin or neomycin containing ointment are also useful. In case the symptoms persist then oral antibiotics may be needed. Please consult a dermatologist in that case.
I hope it helps. Take care and please do keep me posted in case you have any additional doubts. Kind regards.
