I've just come home from seeing my GP about
what I thought was an infected pimple or boil on my bottom cheek near my anus.
She said it was an abscess and didnt offer anything other than to keep doing what I was doing for the last 4 days that I have had it, which is salt bathing and zinc cream, that it will eventually pop and go away.
Im happy to keep doing that, so long as it does eventually pop (each day it seems to be a little better, but still not popping).
I have been reading Randy and Phoebes posts on their abscesses and I know I could be a hell of a lot worse off.
So, I guess I was asking if we are prone to getting these anywhere on our bodies or just peri anal.
Also in my GP's defence she was more worried about the cough I have at the moment and is making me take antibiotics for that, so really the abscess was secondary to that in her mind. (I feel like Im hocking up a lung lol)
Thanks for any replies
