Red spot on face, discharging pus, spreading to cheeks. Can I use fucidin cream?

Hi there, a few days ago a spot appeared on my face. Pus came out and now 2 days later the area has gone red, it s itchy. It looks like a bacterial infection no blood weeping but slight yellowish fluid came out. I feel as if it is spreading in my cheek. Thought it may be a cold sore but not sure. I was told to use fucidin? Please help. Thank you for your time.

Thanks for posting your query to HCM. You seem to have acne or furuncles on the face. Both has to be treated effectively for early cure. Face is also a danger zone for spread of infection. Hence you may have to consult your doctor for starting appropriate antibiotics. However till then you may use fucidin cream.
Have a good day
