thought i was breaking out on my face with pimples. i had changed face creams, and ended up with raised red areas that were very sore. I can't handle having anything ugly on my face so I started trying to pop the sores. They are very painful. I decided that maybe I should just leave them alone, but more appear..Would this cream help?
Impetigo is caused by a staph infection. You will need antibiotics to treat this. Triamcinolone ointment will not work. It may help reduce some of the redness because it is a steroid cream but it will not kill the underlying infection. Call your healthcare provider.
