Thank you for that information.

Yes. You should see a doctor right away. If you can not see your primary care MD this afternoon then go to the ER.

It sounds like you have a pretty serious infection that might need antibiotics.....much more than neosporin....

Does this make sense to you?

It's safe for you to press the positive feedback button now if you so desire. And, never fear, even after you press that button I'll still be right here to continue helping you, but, as I do work for tips, I want to make sure you are happy before rating me.
