Dermatologist 's  Response
thank you for posting on HCM.
as per your history, you may have allergic dermatitis with secondary infection.
-- infection is a probability as you complain of yellow liquid coming out of lesions.
my treatment advise would be:
-- maintain hygiene.
-- you can take a course of oral antibiotics like tab cefixime 200mg twice a day for 5 days.
-- you may take tab ibuprofen for pain and tab levocetrizine twice a day for itching.
-- you may apply Neosporin ointment twice a day over the lesions.
-- once the infection subside, you may apply topical corticosteroids in the form of betamethasone valerate(0.1%) cream.
consult a dermatologist nearby.
thank you
