Thanks for all of the support. My doc put me on a antibiotic called Vibramycin. I took it for a few days and then read up on it and it says it can make my birth control pills ineffective, so I freaked out and quit taking it. I have never wanted kids, and I have always taken great care not to get pregnant. So the anti-s were out!
But now, I've been suffering with a new outbreak. It's right in the middle of my belly, under the roll of fat, near my pubic mound. Because it's in this fold, in the CREASE of it, it is extremelly painful. It's internal (usually these things are on the surface) but this is a baddd one, infected deep inside, and bulging deeply on either side of the crease. Oh, what a bad place! I can't even get outside to play with my dog, or to check the mail, and sitting down on the toilet is excruciating. Sleeping is uncomfortable also. I'm tired today........just sitting here online, not being able to move much.
I'm back on the antibiotics now. Looks like the 'playground' is CLOSED for maintenance!!!!!
And saramae1222, I had a lesion appear on my breast, near the front. Not long ago. The darn thing won't heal, and it has left an ugly scar, like a darker nipple next to my real nipple. Talk about killing a woman's admiration of her newly thinning body! Anyhow, just wanted to say that this particular breast-alien drained so much that first few weeks that I have to cut panty liners in half and tape them on to it. I didn't have anything else! And the thing leaked tooooo much for a simply bandaid. I didn't have any large guaze pads! You gotta do what you've gotta do sometimes!
