Detailed Answer:
Hello
Thanks for the follow up.
I could not find attachment.
I saw your recent query where you mentioned that its painful.
This suggests that you have developed furuncle a bacterial infection.
I treat such cases with a combination of oral and topical antibiotic.
Tablet augmentin 625 mg three times a day for 5 days and ointment mupirocine to be applied twice daily for the same duration gives good results.
If possible upload a photograph of the involved area.
You can mail the photograph on YYYY@YYYY with subject ATTN dr XXXXXXX XXXXXXX
Let me know if you have any other doubts.
Thank you.
