I had 4 small red water bumps (the kind that are really itchy, and when opened a small amount of watery stuff comes out). After I itched them they didn't heal though. They opened, and left a small round hole in the center that never healed. Now, months later, I have a round raised sore where they were, that is red around the outside edge, and has a circle of white, dead skin in the center. When I remove the dead skin in the middle there is an unhealed hole underneath.
I have tried antifungal creams, antibiotic ointments, tried leaving them alone and uncovered, tried opening up the center and putting on the creams/ointments then putting on bandaids... Nothing works... How do I get rid of this???
If it is folliculitis complicated by MRSA, could I pass it on to my family? shouldn't my derm have done a biopsy since I have had it so long, and nothing is working? He said something about chronic scarring and said to see a plastic surgeon... problem is there is still an open sore there??? Help!
