A spot or boil or something??

I had a zit type thing right above my belly button it was red and hot and sore it was small like the point on a pen, so I squezzed it nothing came out. That was yesterday and today it is bigger than a 50 cent piece, sore and red and hard. What am I going to do---I do not want to go to the doctor.

  • I think you might have to. If it grew that much overnight, it doesn't sound like it going to go away.

  • I had a fever today and yesterday, maybe that will kill what ever off, if not I suppose I should go in tommarrow, why can't I have a normal disease like strep throat--- I am always calling the clinic with weird stuff----ugggg

  • Sounds like you're going to have to go get that bad boy drained. I had something similar when a cyst on my shoulder got infected. They'll numb the area with a local anesthetic and then pop it.
