It sounds like folliculitis. The only way folliculitis papules can scab is if you scratch them. Folliculitis doesn't itch, so I have to assume that yours do because you're worrying about them. Ask your doctor about suing an antibacterial soap like PhisoHex on a regular basis to keep the bacteria at bay, along with the Bactroban.
I forgot to add, that sometimes these things can scar and sometimes spread if i keep scratching.
Im sorry, but also i would like for you to know that my lymph nodes always get swollen when this happens, and they are fluid filled because when there is a hair in the middle a little clear fluid comes out of it when i pull it out, not an extreme amount either, but still there is no pain, just very itch, unless the medication is placed, then the itching becomes a little less aggrivating.. Thanks.
Please do not scratch. Please do not pull the hair out. If you need further reassurance that these are OK and should be left alone, please talk to your doctor again or get another opinion. Thanks.
I have this small red bump in my pubic region its like a pea and has been around for about a month. It is just one bump and has been squeezed once where a little white pasty substance came out. It does not itch it is just there with no other bumps in site. I have thoughts of Herpes, epidermal cysts could it be one of those or something....Thanks
