Doctor:How can I help you?
User:Hi.. I have a sore on my under belly. Its giving terrible pain.
User:The sore is having a puss tip but its not puntured
User:The place where it happened isjust where you put your leather belt on the pant
User:Please advise a pain relief and also any medicine which ill puncture the sore and then we can put any antibiotics
Doctor:May I know since when you have this problem?
Doctor:Do not notice visible lump?
Doctor:if yes, what is the size of the lump?
User:Its only last two days..
User:there is no lump...but a small sore which is red in colour and about to get burst ..White Puss visible on TIP
Doctor:Let me brief you.
User:its a terrible pail led to fever 99 F
Doctor:The symptoms that you describe look like an infected hair follicle.
User:so any remedies....
Doctor:Now, medical drugs will not help in puncturing or draining the puss. If the pus is large in amount it needs to be drained by making a small incision.
Doctor:Since it is important to incise it in sterile condition
Doctor:a doctor is best to do this incision.
User:not so big..2 mm dia
Doctor:If the pus collection is not large, the condition can be observed with medication.
Doctor:I suggest you to apply bactroban ointment on the affected area.
Doctor:DO not try to squeeze or pucture the lesion.
Doctor:Take calpol tablets 500mg thrice a day for fever.
Doctor:If it gets ruptured spontaneously clean it with sterile cotton and running water.
Doctor:And continue to apply the ointment for some more days.
Doctor:But if it doesn't rupture and causes more discomfort
Doctor:it would be ideal to visit a doctor and get it drained.
Doctor:Have you followed?

Doctor:Thanks for consulting me.
Doctor:Bye for now.
User:bye..its a great help.
Doctor:*before concluding
