I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.

Well.. about 2 years ago..i caught my first staph infection.
Well.. about 2 years ago..i caught my first staph infection. It puffed up my cheek to the size of a golf ball under the skin. Had to be surgically lanced. Nasty. Since then .. I've felt it never really went away.. rather.. felt it stayed in a couple small bumps on my cheek in that general area. Had another bad one on my finger.. also addressed by doctor. Another 2-3 different rounds of antibiotics later.. and now it has seemingly settled onto my top lip. It is literally.... driving me insane. I mean ... living with the pain.. constant bandaids on my lip... I'm losing my mind. I NEEDED THIS OUT OF MY FACE.....FOR GOOD. I JUST SPENT 45 minutes in the bathroom. Tweeting and peeling strips of skin off just to relieve the pressure / pain... but the stuff under the skin will not subside. I see.. when it is smaller.. like its small clusters of clogged hair follicles... like. 5-6 hairs.. very painful to pull.. and it leaves a wound that is slow to heal... then just freaking jumps to a different part of my lip...or face. .....i can't do this anymore. … read more
