Thanks for the query,

He might be suffering from a deep bacterial infection.

Sometimes the bacterial infections are recurrent

Prolonged treatment with antibiotics is needed.

A culture from the fluid and sensitivity for antibiotic will be of great help.

Please meet a dermatologist.

I have a small hole in my skin above my right eyebrow. It has been there for a few years. It is small but deep and ssometimes has fluid. It has left a small ropelike scar and seems to very slowly open a little to the l of where a scar forms. What could it be? No odor & seems to heal supervicially but never from the inside out.

I had a lumpectomy in April 2010 followed by brachiotherapy and chemo. The insertion site of the SAVI device never healed. In June 2011 I suffered a massive infection in my breast. The infection has resulted in a large lump of scar tissue that has fluid inside. It is attached to my pecs and is only moderately uncomfortable. The surgeon says it is OK, the radiologist says it needs to go as it makes any cancer diagnosis in that area difficult. I have had OT with massage, light therapy and Kenesio tape. I would like a few outside opinions on whether I should keep the messy tissue, or get it removed.

My baby has these hard lumps that come and go. Sometimes they are on her legs, back, buttocks or stomach. They are painful while they are there but then they go away in a few days. It may not come back for a few weeks but they do leave a scar. What are they?
