Hi

Thanks for posting the query

Your son-in-law is suffering from folliculitis of the nose (also termed as nasal vestibulitis). This happens when the hair follicle in the nose gets infected leading to pain and swelling.

Do not worry! It will subside with the above antibiotics. Plain Emanzen will not be sufficient enough to relieve the pain; he needs to take a pain killer along with that. Also, he can try using neosporin ointment for local application to relieve the pain and the swelling.

Hope with these measures he will recover soon. You can write back to me if there are any further queries.

Regards

I am a 22,male .Actually i got a bump on my skin of penis towards the base. Then it increased in size for 4 -5 mm and become red and then ruptured with 5-6 drops of blood. I washed it with shavlon and applied neosporin ointment . but today after 2days i found the skin of scrotum just below that wound became redish ( i can see very few blood within skin) and senitive also . I think it to be some liquid or blood accumulation. I am getting scared , what should i do now.

My name is Ric and I'm a 20 year old male. I never really had a huge problem with acne until recently. The acne isn't like typical acne I've had before they are slightly more swollen and more painful. I keep from picking at them but when they eventually pop they drain a yellowish pus and take an extremely long time to heal even with the application of Neosporin and other facial cleanser products. After I wipe off the Neosporin or whichever product I may have on my face there is a swollen yellow head on the abscess but not because there is pressure or puss under it it's just like a raw cap over it that will not pop or wipe off with a towel. I also have three lymph nodes on the right side of my neck/jawline that have hardened to slightly smaller than pea size. That also seems to be where the breakout gets the worst is right on the corner of the mandible. Again, the sores stay raw and drain for 3-4 days and do not heal as fast as they should. A lot of the hair follicles on my face are getting infected too. Any idea as to what is going on?

Hello, My 8 month old son s big toenail is split pretty far down toward the middle. I clipped some of it off so it wouldn t get caught on anything. I also applied Neosporin to it before putting his sock on. Is there anything else I should be doing? He is a big time crawler and climber. I think he must of snagged his nail doing one of these things. Thanks for the help!
