Painful bump near elbow. Puss coming out. Is it folliculate?
I am 18 and I have a bump on my arm near my elbow . It has some puss that comes out every once in a while but it is very painful and it also has a red circle around it and it is hot/warm. I had folliculitis not too long ago and I dont know if thats what it is. My grandma also just went into the hospital for Strep B and Sepsis .
From your description it definitely sounds like folliculitis or a very small abscess.You need to start taking antibiotics as Ceftum or Cloxacillin along with an anti inflamatory drug as Voveran. wishing you a speedy recovery.
