This is on the side of my boob. It started as a big bump, and has progressed to this in the past 3 days. What could it be? You can see the meat from my boob, and it hurts like hell. I go to dr in am, can it wait til then? I'm at a loss right now. Idk what to do. It hurts like hell.


***on way to ER! It was not close to being like this yesterday at all. It happened fast. It's been 3 days from the bump to this. That's it. I'm scared as hell cuz idk what it is. Please pray for me..


*** done with ER. It's staph. They looked at it and squeezed it. Said that since its already leaking on its own that my body is trying to heal itself. Gave me bactrim and keflex. Told me if it gets redder, more painful, or bigger to come back immediately. Warm compresses as often as possible. Said it would take awhile to heal. Thanks for the prayers, and sorry to those that think I made a mistake by posting on here before ER. I was very freaked out. When I got to hospital, they had 3 drs in the room and took me back to my room immediately. So I was even more freaked out. They didn't do a culture or anything, but I'm sure my dr will tomorrow when I ask him.

Again, thank you all for the prayers.

That is horrible. Why the hell have you waited this long?! That looks like like either staph or MRSA.

I'm no nurse, but it looks like a nasty infection.  If it's gotten that bad over the course of three days, I wouldn't wait much longer.

Thats an infected staph infection which needs immediate attention from the ER. Since its open,  you've been spreading contagious staph everywhere. Yuck.

Looks like the sores my son got that were MRSA. It's not flesh eatting bateria but it's definitely dangerous. Go to your doctor today.
