hard lump between eyebrows, perifolliculitis,crawling bugs sensation.

Hi, I have this lump between my eyebrows, and it has been there for 6 months. It started out looking like a large blister , but it was hard and no fluid . It got infected and was diagnosed as a strep or staff infection. I got a shot and pills of antibiotics . The infection went away, but the bump is still there, then it started to spread over my left eyebrow, and it felt as though there were bugs crawling inside. I went to other docs, and each time it was diagnosed as something different. Some of them gave me steroids, and they didn t help. I had a biopsy done, and they called it perifoliculites, and not cancer . Well I got it to go down with hot compresses and aloe vera jelly, but it is back to the same lump between my eyebrows. I don t feel the crawling feeling as often as I used to. I don t think that I have the perifoliculites, but haven t gotten any satisfaction from all the docs I have gone to, and everyone of them wants to give me different drugs. In fact some of those steroids made me extremely sick. What to do now?

Perifolliculitis is a complex term which says an inflammation in the area around your hair follicle.What I advice is to use the aloe vera jelly and along with it you can use Canesten ointment three times daily for around 10 days on the bump in the middle of your eyebrow.Do not worry if a swelling reduces in size it is not usually a cancer.hope your problems come down with this solution
