Suggest Remedies For Red Bumps On The Hip Area
Hello. Thank you.
I am Dr. kakkar(Dermatologist). I have noted your concern.
I have viewed the image. Seems like bacterial impetigo. I can make out crusted lesions, which is perhaps dried discharge on a background of erythema. Impetigo is commonly staphylococcus in origin though streptococci may also cause impetigo.
I suggest an oral antibiotic e.g Amoxicillin and Clavulanic acid combination(a penicillin) Or Cefadroxil (a Cephalosporin) Or Cephalexin (also a Cephalosporin) for week.
Topically you may use either mupirocin or fusidic acid ointment.
These are prescription antibiotics and i suggest that you talk to your general practitioner for a prescription regarding the same.
Oral and topical antibiotic
Rather than plain penicillin I suggest either Cephalexin or Cefpodoxime (cephalosporins) Or a Penicillin and Clavulanic acid combination (Amoxicillin and clavulanate) for a week. Topically I suggest either mupirocin Or neosporin ointment for a week.Not cortisone.
