    What causes bump on head and bridge of nose also noticed swelling below the eye?

recently spent a week I Florida. Get a bit of sun,not too bad, but felt a bit tender o parts of my bald head and bridge of nose. Did some weeding for my parents, possible bug encounqter, possible plant encounter. . Swan in the Gulf of Mexico. Two days after I got home to NC, I had a TRAIL of bumps on my head and bridge of noae. Next day a pack on my nose the looked like necrosis, shaped in a VARIETY about half inch long., and swelling below one eye That was a week ago. Bumps are starting to break open, some puss colored nodules inside. The necrotic skin still unhealed. No more swelling. Any idea what this is?

Dermatologist 's  Response

Perhaps it is a sunburn. I suggest you use a topical steroid and antibiotic combination ointment e.g. Fluticasone propionate 0.05% and Mupirocin 2% ointment, twice daily for a week.

Use a sunscreen before going outdoors.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Take care
