They r painful toothed touch and hot. Not sure if the infection on my face is the same as the others or not. I have had this for going on 2 weeks now. Please help with some feedback

Dermatologist 's  Response
According to your complaints it can be a furuncle which is due to bacterial infection of the hair follicles.
You should take oral antibiotics and anti inflammatory medicines for this along with application of antibiotic cream on the affected area twice daily.
This should resolve the infection in 7-10 days.
