Hi,
You have infection and cellulitis in the part.
There may be having dermatitis or fungal infection and due to itching there is infection resulting pain and induration.
In this case use of triple antibiotic is not of much helpful,
You have to go for antibiotic course and some anti allergic medicine.
ok and bye.
I find this answer helpful

I applied triple antibiotic ointment to sores. Had oozing, tender skin in spots where it oozes, and redness. I have been using Lamisil because the sores apparently are a fungus from my bra- on top of my breast that I have gotten most of life on each breast from time to time. Am I allergic to triple antibiotic?

Had surgery on right long finger @ dip joint to reduce osteoarthritis pain. Earlier procedure on left index finger was successful (bones fused). This time bones did not fuse so a bone graft was done. Follow-up x-ray showed bone was a casualty of infection. At no time was the infection visible or painful. Third procedure was done to take out pins, debride area, and take samples for culturing. Results showed staph (not mrsa) infection and fungal infection. Immediately went on fuconazole by mouth and cefazolin infusion. Infections are gone but so is the pin that supported tip of finger. Tip of finger is unstable and requires a splint most of the time. On three-week hiatus. What are options aside from amputation?

I am having blurred vision, which sometimes starts to tunnel with outlining streaks. I have headaches in the back of my lower head, I feel as though I just got off a marry-go-round, or doped up, or drunk. Then there is a feeling of a low voltage shock in my head and everything moves side ways. I also and have a cough that is productive and a discharge with intense itching. The palm of my hands and finger itch and I claw them raw during the night. I think the all of these are intermingled some how. Is there a fungal infection that would cause all of these? Or is my head problems something else completely? I am really tired of feeling dizzy. I also seem to be sleeping more--but it seems the only way to couping with the being dizzy. Thanks!!!
