Suggest treatment to remove infected pimple on face - Online Doctor Chats
Please proceed with your query.
I recently developed a pimple on my face just a week back
It is a big one filled with puss
Please advise how to clear this without leaving a scar on the affected area
Approx. what would be the size of the pimple?
Double the size of normal pimple
It is filled with puss
Is there any pus point?
Yes the pimple is red. At the bottom there is white puss
The best treatment here would be to drain the pus.
Do not squeeze the pimple.
As that would lead to scar formation.
The physician would drain it using antiseptic preparations.
which would avoid scar formation.
Is there any cream which can be used on it
you can apply over it twice a day after washing your face.
So by only using this cream can i eliminate the pimple without leaving scar on my face
It depends as this medication would prevent further infection and you can wait for the pus to drain on its own.
If no improvements observed within a week you need to see a dermatologist.
Ok while washing my face should i neglect washing the affected area with the soap
No, you can wash the area with soap.
soap too acts like a antiseptic.
As suggested by you if i use Soframycin cream on my pimple. Will there be any side effects
Usually no side effects are found while using topical antibiotics but some times irritation of the skin, blackening of the skin is observed in few people.
If you have any such symptoms you need to stop the cream immediately.
And also just a week back i developed a hole like mark in my face
Till last week there was no such mark. But suddenly last week when i just looked at the mirror a hole like mark was there in my face.
I cant understand why it has happened
Can you upload a photo of the mark. It will help me in understanding your condition better.
Sure just hold on will do it now
Think so some technical problem in the site
But the mark is like a pore
How to clear that
very much disappointed with it
Is there any elevation of the pore compared to the surrounding skin?
Its just small in size
Its like a cut on the skin
where the top layer is missing
No havent had any injury
From the description of yours I feel that it could be a black head or a normal pore on the face.
As i said these many days there were no sign. Suddenly a week back i notice a hole like mark in that spot
Might be a black head.
We go through the photo and will guide you accordingly.
So mine is an oily skin
So which is the best face wash to control both oil and pimples
Take steam regularly as it will clear your oil from the skin and also will clear the pores.
It will clear the oily skin and also will prevent future pimple formation.
You can go for any face wash like himalaya neem or neutrogena which ever suits your skin.
But dont you think it will have side effects
You mean the side effects from the face wash.
I feel they are mild and usually no side effects are seen. In my personal experience never seen any side effects.
What about Calamine Lotion. Is it safe to use or it has side effects associated with it.
calamine lotion is a medicinal preparation and is seen good in preventing further pimples.
No side effects are usually seen.
