Posted on Wed, 11 May 2016
Question: Good evening Doctor
I am XXXXX,34 year old.
I got a blister on left part of chin and initially I thought its pimple. But after 4 days ,now the pain increased and the blister seems to be little hard and not even opening(If pus is there,atleast it will come out)
2 Years back,faced same kind of blister on left eyebrow,but when I have consulted GP,after taking some antibiotics as suggested by DOC,blister opened and pus came out immediately and the blister got healed completely without even scar.

Request you t suggest me the medications.

Thanks,Regards

Brief Answer:
Take antibiotics and anti inflammatory medicines

Detailed Answer:
Hi
Thanks for being at healthcare magic

I have gone through your complaints and according to me you are having furuncle which is bacterial infection of the hair follicle.

In such cases I recommend my patients to take oral and topical antibiotics.

I recommend them to take tablet amoxicillin clavulanic acid combination 625 mg twice daily for 7 days along with mupirocin cream on the affected area twice daily till it heals.

For pain and swelling I prescribe them anti inflammatory medicines containing serratiopeptidase aceclofenac combination twice daily for 3-4 days.

This heals the infection in 7-10 days.

Regards
Dr Asmeet
