Dear Gots
They can cause a pimple or a blister with red around the area, with swollen lymphglands in the affected limb and even a red stripe going in the direction of the heart. You can treat with antibiotic ointment like bactroban but if it makes a sore or a red stripe or gives you fever you need to see a doctor.
