Painful boils = worth a look-see by your doc.  Might be nothing, but then again, MRSA is a beast.

I'd go have it looked at. Maybe just for the peace of mind..
If we would read the secret history of our enemies,we would find in each mans life sorrow and suffering enough to disarm all hostility.

I went to my doctor this afternoon and it was staph they drained it and sent a culture in and the results will be back on friday. They don't know if its mrsa yet but they started me on bactrim and i had to cancell my remicade this week and depending on the results i may do it next week.

wow, thanks for posting that. I hope it is nothing to serious!!!

Might I ask was it a large boil? my son has some small pimples on the inside of his armpit and I can't decide if we should take him to the Dr. It seems to be getting better and he has had them before (Allergic child) They bumps don't hurt him.

 

thanks! Karen

yes mine was rather large about the size of a quarter.I would just keep an eye on it.It could be a sebaceous cyst which is in the oil glands of the lymph nodes.If it keeps coming back though i might have them check if i were you.Better to be safe then sorry .

My son's rash turned out to be small warts. I forget the name. Yucky but not life threatening. I was glad...
