Couldn't find what you looking for?


About 1 week ago I had a zit which was big, I then touched it and tried to get it away, I think maybe something got inside it? It has now turned a purple/red coulor but is under the skin and has no head. It feels sort of hard and like it won't go away! I went to the doctors about other acne problems and he gave me antibiotics, however he didn't touch or feel it and just said it should die down. But it has been hard and under the skin since Monday and it is now Friday, anyone know what It could be?


It's called a stye, a common infection or inflammation of the follicle.  Antibiotic drops would help but should go away on it's own.  You might try a warm damp compress.  Not to worry, but if it doesn't go away, see your Dr.
