Infection

Posted by on December 6, 2007


What happens when you’re being stupid.

I burned my neck (don’t ask) and the next day I ripped away the scab.  I couldn’t find the rubbing alcohol so I used the hydrogen peroxide.  Stupid move.  Now the small burn mark has become a major infection.

The swelling from the puss underneath is as big as the first digit of my thumb.  I’ve tried everything to get it to drain and clear up but I seem to only make matters worse. 

Today the puss underneath can be seen turning green.  I have a doctor’s appointment now today to have them take care of it properly. 

Moral of the story … don’t go pulling scabs off!  Let the darned thing heal on it’s own!  Ugh.
