Nose piercing has a puss-filled bump slightly above it!?
You have a cyst that got infected. This is fairly common on new piercings, especially if you don't clean it 2 times for the whole healing period. How to treat : Sea salt soaks 2-3 times a day. Warm water + non iodized salt mixed in a cup.( 1/4-1/8 teaspoon non iodized salt + 8oz water ) Soak the piercing in for 5-10 minutes, 2-3 times a day. Use a q-tip to clean around the piercing thoroughly, rinse with water and pat it dry with a paper towel. If you are not familiar with sea salt soaks and you find it difficult to soak the piercing in take a cotton ball and soak it in the mixture. Apply on the piercing for 5-10 minutes. This will treat the infection, avoid new ones and help the piercing to heal. This piercing will take at about 3 months to fully heal, so you need to keep cleaning it 2 times a day with non alcohol/non scent antibacterial soap ( example : Dial ) or sea salt soaks until it has fully healed. If you had been doing that from the start you wouldn't have that issue now. Never ever use alcohol, peroxide, bactine or any other ointment on the new piercing aka the open wound. They are harsh and they will irritate the piercing, take away the good bacteria that are needed for the healing and this will lead to a new infection. Gluck ------------- No professional piercer will ever suggest to clean a piercing with rubbing alcohol or anything else than sea salt or H2Ocean ( same thing ) or non antibacterial soap. If your piercer did, do not to that piercer again he is clearly not a professional and has no experience in piercings. If you got it done at Clare's or a place similar to that with a piercing gun and not a needle then the person who did it is not a professional licensed piercer.
My cat, who loves me very much, likes to bump my nose with hers, and almost immediately bite it. Why?
It's a sign of affection. “Love bites” are common, but they have to really love you. (It took our former-stray cat-colony cat years to start doing it.) It's also, in my experience, often brought on by other affection, such as luxurious petting: the stray cat we feed is largely unloved in the neighborhood, so when I started giving him major snuggle time, he started first nipping me, then biting me, then biting me harder - purring all the while - and finally, he drew blood. He jumped away quickly when I exclaimed “Hey!” and I made sure to pet him once more before going inside to treat the wound (we have GOT to get him a rabies shot: it's newly thought that rabies-by-stray-cat might be how Edgar Allen Poe, who kept company with strays, died) so he knew I forgave him.My two indoor cats also bite, although they don't go for faces. I’ve tried to get them to touch noses with me, and they aren't interested. They do go for hands, however, or arms, or rarely toes. The male bites harder than the female, and they bite harder while being otherwise cuddled - it's like they just feel So Good that they have to express to you just how much they love you in return. Although the male often comes up to me when I’m reclining, jumps on my lap, and starts licking and nibbling me - he knows he’s not supposed to be on my legs unless they’re covered (sheet, blanket, skirt) because I am technically allergic to cats, so when he sees my legs covered, he takes it as an engraved invitation to come cuddle - and then he has to tell me just How Much he loves me! (The male is especially dedicated to me, he’s “kind of my baby”, too! And the female adores my mother - there are a couple of stories in how that happened.)So I think the nose-chomps are affectionately based, although if it's problematic, you can always train the cat to stop - but that would probably involve making your face off-limits. Personally, I think the biting is sweet, but again, no one’s going for my face! And both cats quickly stopped grooming my hair when they discovered I didn't like it. (Actually, I loved it, but I’m more allergic to saliva than fur and got large hives on my skull, so I had to politely decline the next time the female offered. She only tried once or twice after that, and then decided only my mother was worthy of being groomed!)

Boils on Vagina..they reappear alll the time, help?
First, you don't have to shave to get an ingrown hair. The natural cycle of hair growth includes the eventual falling out and new hair growing in. You're less likely to get a ingrown hair if you don't shave/wax etc., that's true. Second, A boil is a skin infection that starts in a hair follicle or oil gland. At first, the skin turns red in the area of the infection, and a tender lump develops. After four to seven days, the lump starts turning white as pus collects under the skin. If the infection spreads to the deeper tissues of the skin, then it becomes an abscess. Having so many boils is probably indicitive of an underlying condition which could be any of the following: * diabetes, * problems with the immune system, * poor nutrition, * poor hygiene, and * exposure to harsh chemicals that irritate the skin At the point where they've become nearly constant, you've probably gotten a staph infection. Most staph infections develop into abscesses and can become serious very quickly. This germ can be present on normal skin and enters the body through tiny breaks in the skin or by traveling down a hair to the follicle. Which means you likely haven't done anything do cause the condition but you'll need to see a doctor for a cure. Some tips to help you in the meantime (and after). Use a mild unscented soap for bathing and wash your underwear in perfume free detergent. Always wear clean underpants and change them after each shower (at least daily). Cotton underpants are more breathable, avoid satiny ones and those that are very snug on your crotch. STOP PUTTING VICKS on your wounds, for heaven's sake. Use an ointment like Neosporin, they've got one with pain relief that you might appreciate and will minimize scarring. Do see your doctor right away. It will be a bit embarrassing for you but that won't be as awful as dealing with this for months or years to come.
What is the reason for the sudden appearance of multiple small white heads on your face? What are some quick remedies for them?
Comedones are the skin-coloured, small bumps (papules) frequently found on the forehead and chin of those with acne. A single lesion is a comedo.Open comedones are blackheads; black because of surface pigment (melanin), rather than dirtClosed comedones are whiteheads; the follicle is completely blockedCauseComedones arise when cells lining the sebaceous duct proliferate (cornification), and there is increased sebum production. Following factors may play a role.Excessive activity of the male sex hormone 5-testosterone (DHT) within skin cells.Overhydrated skin premenstrually, from moisturisers or in humid conditions.Contact with certain chemicals including oily pomades, isopropyl myristate, propylene glycol and some dyes in cosmetics.Rupture of the follicle by injury such as squeezing pimples, abrasive washing, chemical peels or laser treatments.Certain dietary factors may contribute to comedonal acne, particularly milk products and high glycaemic-index foods (sugars and fats).Treatmentchoose oil-free cosmetics and wash twice daily with a mild soap and water. It is best to stop smoking and to have a diet that is low in sugar, fat and dairy products.Choose "comedolytic" topical medications. These should be applied once or twice daily as a thin smear to the entire area affected. It may take several weeks to months before worthwhile improvement occurs. Treatment needs to be continued long-term (sometimes for many years).Suitable topical agents include:Benzoyl peroxideAzelaic acidSalicylic acid +/- sulfur and resorcinolGlycolic acidRetinoids such as tretinoin, isotretinoin, adapalene (these require a doctor's prescription)Better to consult a dermatologist to choose the right treatment.
