Hello and Welcome to ‘Ask A Doctor’ service.
I have reviewed your query and here is my advice.

I have gone through your complaints and it could be folliculitis which is inflammation of the hair follicles. I would recommend you to apply topical antibiotic like Neosporin ointment on the affected areas twice daily and take tablet Cephalexin twice daily for 5-7 days.

Hope I have answered your query.
Let me know if I can assist you further.

Hello. Fatty tumors run in my family. My brother has had about 50 removed and they were all benign. I have about 5 or 6 small ones in my arms and have for years and they don t bother me. About a week ago I found a BB size bump or lump in my groin and last night I noticed that it has grown and is now the size of a gum ball. When I first found it I could almost roll it in my fingers but now I can t and it is bothering me a little. I have Barrett s esophagus that is pretty bad, I ve recently had a polyp come back precancerous. None of the lumps in my arms have changed in size or how they feel, they just appeared one day the size they are. I m a little worried about this new one in my groin...should I be? What could it be and what do I need to watch for?

I recently noticed a small bump on my pelvas area (groin) and i thought it was a pimple. A few days later it got bigger and some swelling had started. I showed it to my dad and he sais it was infected, but i have no idea how or why. I dripped to pop it and squeez it out and alot of puss and blood and some clear liquid stuff came out. i thought it was over. but today i woke up and its as big as a golfball and it is really hurting very bad and i cant harldy walk or even wear cloths over it. im a bit scared because i know infections can get bad. i do think its serious and need to go to the hospital but my medical canceled and i have no ride. PLEASE, someone tell me what i should do. i tried anti-biotics, proxide, and salt-water, and taking meds for the pain. i need advice today as soon as possible. please if you have questions feel free to ask....this is serious and it hurts a lot!
