a few months ago i got this spot on my upper lip the size of a small button or dime that had clear liquid stuff coming out of it and it was all red like the blood had come to the surface, there was a hard spot under the surface and it was swollen to all lengths of grotesque. well it happened again and i was wondering if anybody could tell me how to get rid of it quickly and what exactly it is... last time i just kind of let it go and it went away in about 2wks... any help would be great. thanks in advance.
My son and my niece both had infantiago last summer. It was caused by a mosquito bite. I guess maybe kids get it more because they play out side alot and stuff. It was horrible. It started out looking like a little ant bite and then it started to puss up and look like a blister. It's a good thing that you got it taken care of. I guess it can cause you to get really sick ( a high fever & vomiting). My niece's was worse then my sons was. Because my mom had already seen my nieces a couple of months before we went to visit her so she knew what she was looking for and told me to take him to the doctor. The only sad thing about it is now my son will not play outside for more then 10 minutes. My niece luckily was only 2 so she doesn't remember getting bit. Well like I said I'm glad your feeling better. Be careful when your outside.
My son got it several times as a child and was put on some heavy antibiotics. One breakout cases a very large scar on his face because he couldn't resist picking it.
The main thing his doctor said was to be sure his hands were always clean and don't pick it because this actually causes it to reoccur and spread.
Glad you got it all fixed up.
It's correct name (anywhere) is Impetigo, and it's a bacterial skin infection, usually around the nose or mouth and more common in children. It is also contagious and is not rare. Antibiotics are the treatment.
That would be impitego, and it is not rare. It's a bacterial infection that is HIGHLY contagious, and tends to recur. It is more common in children ONLY because they are in close contact with several others, and their hygiene is not as good as an adults'.
