    [​IMG] Hi everyone!
    Today I was out with the girls and found that one has this pimple like thing on her skin. I tried cleaning the area with hydrogen peroxide and it did bubble meaning there was an infection. Has anyone ever experienced this? Thank you for all your help.

    Not necessarily 'infection'...HP can bubble up on, and destroy, healthy tissue too.

    I’m not sure what to do with her. She doesn’t act like she’s in pain but I don’t want her to get sick.

    Where is that and how big is it? I’m almost wondering if it could be a ruptured follicle cyst. I’ve never seen that. For starters, can you clean it with betadine or chlorhexadine solution?

    Where is that located on the body? Is it on her breast?
    When you took the photo, was there still Peroxide on the pimple? Don't use peroxide any more.
    Wipe the pimple clean and take another photo so we can see it clearly please.
