Marge, is this a pimple or a boil? [fair warning for personal healthtalk]

Post by fakely mctest on Thu Jul 09, 2015 10:13 pm

Okay, so, in what I HOPE is the capper to the month that just won't quit I was bitten the other night in my under-boob area by what I really freaking hope was a spider but my doctor says might have been a tick (Lyme disease test results pending. Seriously WHAT IS GOING ON.) A slightly bloody, itchy lump on a breast is definitely something you want to wake up to on a Monday morning, holy nuts.

So I have a very pissed off, slightly tender, itchy patch in a...delicate area. The lump has gone down, but there's still a sizable irritated patch. Doctor recommends warm compresses. Does anyone know how long I should keep those on? I forgot to ask. Shrug

I also have something that apparently wants to turn into a sinus infection which has given me a sore throat and a metallic taste in my mouth and is making my tongue feel like I've eaten too much pineapple -- sort of burny and a bit swollen.

Anyone have advice for lessening...tongue swelling? Ugh.

Can't help with the thick boron tongue issue, but depending on where the bug bite is, maybe you can cover it with a band aid or a pastie to keep it from chafing?

Gargle and rinse with salt water several times a day. Also, that sounds horrible! Poor Fakely Sad
