Anyone can give up, it's the easiest thing in the world to do. But to hold it together when everyone else would understand if you fell apart, that's true strength

Back in the day it was called Toxic Shock Syndrome....hard to detect before it strikes and almost nothing you can do once it does.
Our 26 yr old son...just two weeks ago called and said he gone into a walk-in clinic because he had some sort of under the skin infection in his nose and it would not go away. The doctor there gave him script for Cipro and said see you later take care. Our son and his wife do not have insurance (they are getting it now) so he did not think to try and get further help or a second opinion....after all it was just a small infection in his nose. His mother and I talked him into to seeing our doctor, we paid, and they found a major abcess in his nose starting to get close to the cartilage. They got very aggresive...treated with much stronger anti-b's, topical, injected and oral, hot compresses and flushing. It appears that they caught in time but he will probably have scarring inside the nose from the big hole it made.
You just never know and you can not be too careful.
