I was wondering what to do for the pimples that get soooo big they become their own bodily organ? I have two on my back (among the billions of little ones) that broke open and NOW...they wont stop seeping puss. I have been treating them with first aid ointment and covering them up with bandaids for two weeks but they arent healing or getting any better. They are the size of a pea (little bigger) and just as deep. They hurt like a son of a b****     I know I am a slow healer but I am not to sure what to do about infected pimples?
I am 33yrs. old mother or 2 wonderful kids. I was diagnosed at 23. I have had 2 major flares and am now taking Imuran, pariet, and the occasional Pred. for arthritis.

Thanks ga, I went to the doc's and he gave me some antibiotics. I guess the pimples turned into sists and are very infected. I didn't think they were normal pimples. I also got probiotics for the antibiotics. I guess they cause yeast infections and I have to counteract that with the probiotics. GOD! Drugs for my drugs.... lol Well, I hope they kick in soon because they reeeeeally hurt. I also got medicated cream and some over the counter face wash to battle the acne. Thanks again for the response

I would refrain from putting an ointment on them. Just use the band-aids (changed often) to keep it as dry as possible so it heals faster.

For future preventative maintenance, I would suggest Erythromysin topical solution USP 2%. It is a bingo dobber of topical antibiotic. Works wonders.
32 years old. Diagnosed in 2002ish. 
Taking Asacol, Lomotil TID, and on Remicade since 2004. 
Lower Bowel area only, except for the short stint (about 2 weeks) that I had mouth sores.  Also have external/anal fistula and anal/vaginal fistula.

Sounds painful. Do you drink much water throughout the day?, if not try to average 6 to 8 glasses, it will help flush the toxins from your body.

Thanks for the ideas. I have been using ointment, but I will definately stop. It's like having a fistula on my back with all of the puss that is never ending. I know it isn't though. I think it is getting bigger and the puss has turned green (infection) but I am waiting for the anti-biotics to kick in. If it gets any bigger Im just going to emerg and let them deal with it. I usually eat lots of fruits, and veggies along with powerade and water. I am luck to be able to eat fruits and veggies....just looking at the upside. thanks again smurf My entire family calls me smurf lol

Has your doctor had you checked for staph?  I was just diagnosed with staph infection today from something very similar.  Those are probably not acne, but little boils that resemble pimples.

Well, I just went to the drop in clinic like I always do. They like to ship me in and out with a prescription in hand. I am usually the one to ask the questions on diagnosis. How sad.  I will definatlely ask though....about staph. Ive never had a boil so that didn't even enter my mind. Thank you. I will have to go again soon since the antibiotics are upsetting my stomach and I dont need to go into another flare. I am just getting better from the last one.
