I suddenly got a 2 in size infection on my waist.  GP says its a sebascious (sp?) cyst that is infected.  Not on the surface just under the skin, with no head or obvouis pus.  She is treating it with amox tr-k clv.  Today I feel like crap.  I was feeling so wonderful....
I have a call in to my reumy on if I should take my next humira due before I run out of the antibiotic...So far no call back. Anybody have any opinions or thoughts? 
I am agrivated because of this little infection.  I was feeling so go and full of energy and no pain in the back anymore.  I can't even figure out why I got it and two weeks prior I had the best blood work I have ever had. For once I was completely normal...
