Odd Pus spots, help me figure what's wrong?

Posted , 3 users are following.

Okay so about 2 months ago i notice i had spot on my leg, it the skin around it was hard and red, and when you felt it it was really warm, i went to the Doctors About it and they thought i had been bitten,i was tested for scabies and came back clear. prescribed me some Flucloxacillin and some Flucebet and it did go away, over the last two months more appearead, they werent so bad so i just squeezed them and they went away (probably shouldnt have) but now i have one which is just too bad for me, but i think i might know where the problem may lay. Everytime me and my girlfriend sleep together (no clothes) ill wake up with either a little lump or larger, usually when its a little one it will get worse over time (as it is now, last slept with her two days ago) but im just not too sure what it is, can someone help me out, i have posted a picture below.

Thank you.

    Hmmmmm, my sister had the same exact think about a year ago. Hers turned out to be bacteria that kept on getting stuck in the pores of her legs. It lasted 2 years. You said you might know where the problem is..did you try sleeping with your girlfriend with clothes on? Did the lumps appear? Or, when was the last time you changed your sheets and covers? Im no doctor, (im only 19) but you never know. Most likely you or your doctor would figure this out. Good Luck. smile

    It seems like folliculitis. There are a few old wives' tales to getting rid of it such as white cider vinegar, turmeric and hydrogen peroxide. Some anti bacterial wipes should work too. In fact bursting the spot is probably OK if done hygenically!
