Bump on eyebrow, swollen, redness, pus-filled. Ingrown hair?

Hi, I have a bump on my right eyebrow. At first it was small then yesterday I started to mess with it and squeeze it. Today it seems swollen and is red. I used a needle to stab it because I thought it was a pimple , puss and watery blood came out of it and it didn t help at all. The bump is under the skin. I know it isn t a cyst . It s hard and circular. Maybe a ingrown hair? or a Infected follicle? Please help.

Hi,

You are right , it might be folliculitis.

There may be infection of hair follicle.

The lesion is erythematous and painful.

Oral antibiotics in proper dose and anti inflammatory drugs might improve the condition.

Apply antibiotic cream like mupirocin oint.

Improve immunity with immunobusters.

Improve hygiene.

You will feel better.

Thanks.
