Thanks for the query
I would be pleased to answer your question .
Your history and clinical picture are suggestive of 'Recurrent Folliculitis
' associated with secondary eczema
ointment twice a day for 5-7 days whenever the bumps come. If there is no improvement within 3 days of this then you will require a addition of steroid
cream along with that .
2. Dial Antibacterial liquid soap for bathing. Continue this even when asymptomatic.
3. Mupirocin cream twice a day in the inside skin of the nose for 14 days. This may seem strange since you have no symptoms there but this is the commonest site of carriage of the bacteria that causes this condition (staph). Infection keeps recurring from here through carriage by the fingers to other parts of the body.
NOTE: Steroid and mupirocin will require a prescription so I would recommend discussing my recommendations with your GP/family physician. Bacitracin
is an OTC alternative to Mupirocin cream.
Please feel free to ask if you have any queries.
