Top 3 Rash With Bumps or Blisters Causes

  1. 1.Skin Abscess

    A skin abscess is an infection of the deeper skin that's typically due to bacteria seen on the skin. Recently, infections are more frequently caused by Staph. Aureus (puts the "staph" in "staph infections"), which is dangerous and requires treatment.

    You should visit your primary care physician or an urgent care clinic today or tomorrow. Treatment of an abscess includes incision and drainage. It is likely you will be prescribed antibiotics as well. Surgery may be required to get rid of the whole abscess after inflammation has died down. Do not drain the abscess yourself.
