Quoting Is that still my name?:" Yeah. I thought it was a bug bite.... my step-mom said she can't tell if it is a pimple or a boil. ... [snip!] ... to wait it out. They treat me like smurf everytime I go in there, like not having insurance is a happy decision I made.... ugh."
Do you have any drawing salve? I'd keep a warm compress on it and if it gets bigger, or gets worse I would definitely go in!
My hands were really messed up for a while. They were peeling, cracking, and at times bleeding. Nothing I used seem to help them. Well I guess from them being so messed up I ended up with a bacteria infection/staph/mrsa...whatever on my right palm.
It was so bad that I couldn't rest my arm to my side without feeling like my hand was going to explode, that is the only reason why I went in. The dr said if I would have waited another 24 hours I probably would have lost my hand. It didn't even look that bad until they sliced my hand open. Boils are nothing to mess around with.
