Im not sure if its staph but I would say its infected. You really need antibiotics. Its yellow and pus filled. Not a good sign. I would go to any type of dr you can get an appointment with. Even try a walk in clinic. do not wait

That's definitely infected. You need go to a doctor and get antibiotics ASAP; since it's Sunday, I might even go to an Urgent Care if you can, because you need to get that treated before it becomes a problem.

The only way to know for sure is to get your doctor or derm to do a skin culture to determine what type of bacteria ae present. You can then get the appropriate treatment for the infection. In the meantime, don't panic, don't touch it/burst it, if they rupture clean with an antibacterial solution gently, one that is for the face, and cover them if you can. If it is staph, any touching at all with hands, or any other instrument can spread it, so minimise touching as much as you can. Get yourself a doctor appointment as soon as you can, so you can find out what you are dealing with.

First thank you all for your posts and sharing experiences.
I am constantly developping white pus zits around mouth and chin! I started developing this about a year ago.
- constant small white pus zits around mouth and chin. dry up in about 2-3 days.
- few more start when one stops!
- red bumps
- redness
- All these symptoms only around nose , mouth and chin. rest of the face is clear!
- constant Dandruff also.
This thing brought me down so much in my life! There are days when i just sit in my room and cry because I have pretty much tried everything under the sun. I am even worried to go meet my sisters kids sad.png Please help share your expertise and what worked for you guys. Please drop a note and i really need your support to keep me motivated to see the light at the end of tunnel.

Hi Rocket boy,

check into perioral dermatitis or sebboric dermatitis. Its actually like a rash thats easily confused with acné. I had perioral dermatitis and mine started similar to yours. Its Under the rosecea and facial redness section :)

Also have this problem, like rocketboy. But i have staph in my nose/throat and pus are yellow. Already had a course of Acnetin - cool result, but after ending of taking that - problem returns. I think because i have a staph and temp 37-37.2 about 4 years...
