Hello AprilLia, thank you for asking to HealthReplies.com.
A definitive diagnosis of a cutaneous abnormality does require direct examination by a doctor, but the possibilities are: folliculitis, furuncle, carbuncle (a larger form of furuncle (several boils) become one).
Festerous wounds are generally caused by bacterial or fungal infections that trigger pus, due to the treatment of unclean wounds or poor immune system. Generally, festering wounds can subside and disappear on their own with treatment at home, such as: clean the wound with water + antiseptic soap, compress the wound with gauze / cloth that has been soaked in warm water, use a skin ointment that contains antibiotics (can be obtained by prescription), also taking paracetamol to reduce pain, always keep your child's skin clean. It is recommended to be diligent in changing towels, clothes, bed sheets, blankets that children wear so that the bacteria that causes pus that has stuck to the fabric beforehand can be immediately cleaned.
All of our suggestions and answers, hopefully useful, good afternoon.
