Got a blackhead extracted and now a month later it

Patient

Q: Got a blackhead extracted and now a month later it seems to be infected or something

Symptoms:  Just a little bit of pain and discoloration
Doctor

A:   Hi.Thanks for your query and explanation.

The blackhead was extracted and you have got a problem after 1 month that there is little bit of pain and discoloration.
It looks you are getting antibiotics, add on anti-inflammatory medicines like Ibuprofen and take multivitamins as they work as anti-oxidants.
It is possible that the blackhead was removed partially, the sac remained there only to be infected later or there is infection of another gland.

Hope this helps you.
