Weeping Wound/Absess/Boil
I have an absess/boil type of thing on the inner bum cheek, not by the anal sphincter. I went to GP said it was too small to lance, gave me antibiotics - has not cleared up. Have been using traxxa and weeping wound powder to try clear it - no good. Sometimes it''s gooey, sometimes it bleeds. Help please?

I suggest that you apply Bactroban topical ointment, twice daily, but if it does not improve, reconsult your doctor.
