    I've got some red spots on my left cheek that are oozing puss. I also got one on my left torso, but its just one big one though, about an inch. Anyone have any experience with this shit. It dosen't hurt or anything just annoying to look at.

    Advice or have a laugh at my expense or whatever. The sick thing is I can't wait for this to pass so I go back to Thai Boxing and I'm a fat video game nerd. No pics sorry.

    Definitely get it checked out, atleast by someone who is smart in that field, even a coach or something, if you can't get to a doc.

    I had something like this on my arm last week. I went to the doc and he told me it was "strep". I just took antibiotics for a week and it cleared up.

    Best check with your doc.

    This may not be the best place to ask questions like that. A doctor's office on the other hand...

    Hives don't weep puss. You probably have staph. See a doctor ASAP.

    I am going to the doctor(duh). Thanks to my top notch health plan:rolleyes: rather than get an appointment, they are having a doctor call me back which will lead to urgent care. I thought it was healing at first but just the patch on my torso is getting smaller, while the ones my face have scabbed over and look like a mild rash. Nothing big, just looks like dead skin on my jaw.

    Could be impetigo too. I've had that before and it is very similar to what you are describing. Sprang up overnight too.

    When I got staph it looked like hives at first. You better get it checked before it gets worse. I have a couple scars bigger than quarters on my left arm now.
