Avatar n tn go to walgreens and get a soap in a green bottle with white writing called Hibicleans -- its over the counter in the first aid section-- this is a great product---- have everyone in your household wash with it, it will kill the staph on your skin-- it doesn't smell bad either. 4. If your lesions don't rupture and drain after about 5-7 days, go back to the doctor and have them lance it, it will fell 100% better once it opens up and drains. 5.
Avatar f tn Reading some of the posts regarding the same problem, i applied bactroban ointment and it helps a little bit, there's no pain or itch actually , it could be folliculitis indeed , but theres a few more remaining but much smaller than the usual, is there any antibioitc i could take orally to speed up the medication and also what kind of anti-microbial soap you may recommend , thank you so much for the response.
Avatar n tn is it really safe to put over the counter antibiotic ointments such as neosporen/polysporin in your nose to clear out infections? i read somewhere online that putting petroleum in your nose can lead to a type of pneumonia and when i tried this a few times i would develop a bad cough. secondly, my dermatologist does not seem to think that folliculitis is really a problem, he says we can try out antibiotics but it seems to go away on its own after a while.
Avatar m tn My wife took small tweezers and as gently as possible, removed it and other small hairs that had bundled up in one small sore place. It seems to be healing but is very sore and irritatewd. What over the counter medications would work best to help with healing this up? I don't believe it is but mildly infected.
Avatar f tn If a week of compresses and emollients don't do the trick, you can add over-the-counter 1 percent hydrocortisone ointment to your regimen. If the condition still persists or there is deep cracking in the region of your mouth,then pls consult your doctor as it can be due to infection(Angular Cheilitis).Antibiotics are needed in such cases. For rash around the lips, a mild soap or soap substitute, such as Dove or Cetaphil should be used for washing. Scrubbing should be avoided.
Avatar m tn 4. If it is folliculitis, is it transferable to a sexual partner?
Avatar n tn Wash off the peroxide after two minutes. Apply an over-the-counter antibiotic ointment. Ice applied to a large spider bite can decrease the pain and burning. Following these steps will usually prevent an infection from setting in. Infected bites - if the red area around the bite continues to enlarge, becomes more swollen and painful, and starts to drain pus, then it has become infected.
Avatar m tn I've used Benzoyl Peroxide over the counter cream on them, but i'm not sure if it really helped or not. Could it just be a stubborn infection? Should I make an appointment with a dermatologist or is there an over the counter medication that I could try? Will I outgrow it like acne?
Avatar m tn Would you suggest using and is this prescription only or can you buy it over the counter. 2) What is causing the small red blisters on the corona? Like tiny blood blisters. Have you seen this before and will they go away when the underlying cause goes? 3) Would pictures help? I do have some pictures, two posted in the private section of my profile. If it would help I can make them public if you cannot see them otherwise. Thank you in advance.
Avatar m tn Drainage of the boil is done only when it becomes soft and forms a head. Take some over the counter pain reliever, apply Neosporin cream or Bactroban cream and consult a doctor for examination and oral antibiotics prescription. I hope it helps. Take care and please do keep me posted in case you have any additional doubts. Kind regards.
Avatar n tn but, I gained 8 pounds the first month I took it. I decided on the cysts over the fat....And the birth control shot is NOTORIOUS for causing large cysts. Don't take that!!

Avatar n tn 5 hyrrocortizone cream (which my son was screaming when i put it on his face) i think the cream is to much so i switched to over the counter childrens cortizone cream. i have to keep rubbing the aquaphor ointment on his face every 2-3 hrs. a day to keep it from drying out and once i dont it gets worse. We also have been waiting for insurance approval to see a derm. dr. but until then im hopping to keep it in control with the above meds.
614034 tn?1304360040 The reason I'm saying this is because the Muciporcine ointment (Bactroban) you're using is used for BACTERIAL skin infections.... while Acyclovir is an ANTIVIRAL...used to treat shingles/herpes (which look like BLISTERS). And I really doubt that you have both a BACTERIAL and a VIRAL infection on your face at the same time.
Avatar f tn I was so glad when I finish the Incivek, I really though the itch problem was over (and other well). But then I had the worst nightmare in my live. First nights in week 13 I sat with ice box try to cool my skin down all night long, so I would not scratch myself to bloody hell.
Avatar n tn Just a very sharp pain in the nose that seemed almost to be in the bone and cartilage, hurting mostly over the bridge and traveling down to the tip of the nose, as if my nose was broken. But I hadn't had any injury to my face. I've been on an antibiotic, Cephalexin, for 10 days and the pain is nearly all gone. I still feel it slightly if I push my finger into the bridge of my nose where the pain started.
Avatar m tn Also for it being an allergy, there is nothing in my diet that I have consumed for that steady over the last 6 months for the OB's to be constant. I appreciate your concern about the supplements, but I need to stop these OB's. I know there is no cure, but to even slow down the frequency would be a dream. It seems like I am doing everything I have researched to prevent the OB's but they have continiously came for the last 6 months roughly.
Avatar n tn What I also did though was to rub the cream all over the lower (infected) part of the outside of my nose, on the opening of each nostril and on the upper lip area. My theory was that while I was able to clear up the original infection I was continually re-infecting it from the outside. Anyway, seems to have worked. I've now been infection clear for the last week. I will continue treatment for at least another week, although now just three times a day.
Avatar n tn I also highly recommend a product called Cerave, which can be purchased over the counter at Walgreens, Target, Walmart, etc. I've had very good results using the facewash, then using the lotion throughout the day. Also I've found its crucial to wash my face only with warm (not hot) water, and then rinse with cold water. Good luck.
Avatar m tn It creates a large light yellow scab, then it is hard to breath, hurts and you start all over picking it off the next day, I was tired of driving down the street, trying to get the scab out for the last time. Or when I put makeup on, it shows cracks in my lower nostril.....always uncomfortable, wondering if it is cancer, very embarrassing, anyway, back to MRSA, I just dabbed a small amount of mupirocin 2% ointment prescribed by PCP, and it is gone!!!!!
Avatar n tn I took the prescription to my local pharm, they said the cream he'd prescribed was a very very expensive prescription, and told me that the exact same thing was sold over the counter, its an antifungal cream for athletes foot and jock itch!!!!!!!!!!!! I've been using it for about 4 days now just applying it to the outside edge of my lips, and the corners.
Avatar n tn After about a week of it I started using/trying everything I could find over the counter at CVS and other pharmacies with no luck. I was spending tons of money and even trying anti-allergy things when I started to wonder if it was an allergic reaction vs. just dry/angry lips.
288415 tn?1231634102 If the eardrums are intact, a drop or two of baby oil (mineral oil) every few days can help quite a bit. Over-the-counter 1% hydrocortisone cream (apply to outer ear canal with the little finger) can be very helpful. There are other prescription treatments (Dermotic oil) that can help also. There are actually some people that have chronic external otitis due to fungal infections of the nails. This is called an "id" reaction or dermatophytid reaction.
Avatar n tn Hello, ladies! I'm battling the same symptoms many of you suffer or have suffered. I'm so miserable. Saturday while at a church picnic, I started feeling bad, sluggish, feverish, etc. Once I got home & took a warm shower, I could hardly make it to the bed. I could not be still due to the aches & pains. I looked with a mirror in the vagina area to find a large white spot on the top of the right lip. It was painful to touch.
Avatar f tn chest. Topical Over The Counter (OTC) antifungal creams helped a little, but I found treating from the inside out by killing the fungus and boosting my immune system was the best approach. I highly recommend  Syntol by Andrew Arthur Medical to everyone fighting a fungal infection as it's an oral supplement containing many yeast digesting enzymes in addition to multiple strains of probiotic spores (spore germination = better recolonization of good bacteria).
431531 tn?1254101806 I have that pimple under the skin feeling right now and just touching the tip of my nose hurts like crazy. I am a pharmacist, so I am thinking an over the counter anti-fungal cream might help. I may try that and if that does not work then go to a doctor and get something stronger.
Avatar n tn As for seeking relief right now, use hydrocortisone cream (over the counter). Apply it to the itchy area. The itching should go away immediately. But just because you can control the itch, don't give up on seeking a diagnosis.
Avatar n tn An anal fissure would be a single cut that keeps happening in the same place over and over again on in the center of the pernium. An anal fissure is caused by repeatedly tearing open the thin skin in that area from straining. Not like the small cuts that just happen for no reason the way they happen with the Herpes Simplex Virus and Behcet's Syndrome.
