Our expert says:
Try treating it with Bactroban ointment closed up with a plaster overnight. If it is very tender, red and warm, let your GP have a look - you may need oral antibiotics and if it makes a small abcess it may need draining. If it is not a chronic problem of cystic acne your Gp can manage it and you don't have to pay expensive fees to the dermatologist.
