I had a BCG vax a week ago and now have a red weal with a pus filled centre.

The question is: to squeeze or not to squeeze?

Leave it unless you want a big scar

maddening BCG vaccination, I think. I'm almost scared to Google anything I see on MN. My search history is er, eclectic, to say the least.

DO NOT SQUEEZE.

And if it looks big and nssty see a doc. It might need antibiotics.

Mine got ignored by my negligent and busy mother.

The night it popped in the bath is etched on my memory. rivers of pus. Gallons of it. I suspect that was the beginning if my fondness for pus and boils and stuff.

Anyway. I didn't squeeze or pick but my scar is huge and unsightly. So don't.

Although a photo would be good.

Where do we get our fascination with all things pus filled?
