when it rains it pours
I can’t catch a break
I just got over a bad cold and it hasn’t completely gone away and now…..
The following might be Too Much Information:
so the top of my butt crack has been hurting the past 2 days and I couldn’t see in the mirror what was wrong
so today I went to the free clinic at my school to ask the nurse to look at it and tell me what’s going on
she looked and said it’s pretty bad, there is an abcess growing in my butt crack, like a cyst and it hasn’t come to a head, she said it’s not draining
It’s called a Pilonidal cysts and I’m looking at the info on it online and its horrible, I might need surgery
While the cyst is not serious, it can become an infection and should therefore be treated. When a pilonidal cyst gets infected, it forms an abscess, eventually draining pus through a sinus. The abscess causes pain, a foul smell, and drainage. This condition is not serious.
It can be caused by obesity and ingrown hairs.
she said ordinarily she would poke a needle thru a cyst but because of where this is located she would not
she prescribed me some antibiotics and told me to take ibuprofen for the pain and to take lots of hot baths to help it out, moist heat helps
I took a hot bath tonight and it felt so good, there was no pain in the bath
I have to take these antibiotics for 10 days
This is awful y’all, wtf, why me?
