Patient's Query

Hello doctor,

I am a 58-year-old female, in the last seven days, I have developed a small raised, round wart-like sore on my chest. In the last three years, I have had two instances of sebaceous cysts (one in my cleavage and one on the back of my neck) that had to be opened and drained. I take only vitamin C and low-dose Aspirin tablets. Have been using typical 2 % Hydrocortisone cream with no change.

Kindly help.

Welcome to icliniq.com.

Thank you for your query.

I understand your concern. It seems you have developed infected seborrheic keratosis or maybe eczematous dermatitis. You can use topical Mupirocin ointment and take oral tablets of Azithromycin or Augmentin (Amoxicillin and Potassium clavulanate) antibiotic for five days after consulting your physician or nearby dermatologist. Once the lesions get dry, get a review with pictures for better evaluation and the best possible treatment of your concerns.

I hope this has helped you. Thank you.

Same symptoms don't mean you have the same problem. Consult a doctor now!
