Patient

Q: I have these red bumps around my knee and some on my thighs. they looked like pimples so i popped them but they have endless stuff coming out. what are they ? and they kinda itch, i have 5 around my right knew and 1 on each thigh. please help ?

Doctor

A:   Hello.
Thanks for your query on ATD.

It seems that you are having furunculosis. It is a bacterial infection of hair follicles. The fiddling or popping may further spread the infection. You may require antibiotics both orally & topically. Kindly contact your family physician or dermatologist ASAP.

Hope this helps.
Get well soon.
