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.
