Hi doctor,

I had a pimple a few weeks ago that vastly turned into a little bump that will not stop bleeding. It has been like this for about two weeks, and it is driving me mad. I am not sure what it is or what to do.

Hi,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

I have read your concern and examined your picture (attachment removed to protect patient identity).

  • It seems that you have developed pyogenic granuloma.
  • The best treatment for this is radiofrequency cautery. It should be done by dermatologist only.
  • I suggest you apply Mupirocin ointment twice daily for five days. Consult your specialist doctor, discuss with him or her and take treatment with consent.
