Underarm boil update

A few days ago I made a post about my underarm boil, I just wanted to give an update, I went to the er, she said it was about .5in deep and 1in wide. She cut and removed it and omg OUCH lol. I'm on 2 antibiotics and perks. It still hurts but I know it will be worth it. I'll post a pic in replies if you don't remember.

I wanted to explain the procedure, she put a numbing shot in and immediately after cut it open I felt it all, I tried so hard not to scream. Df laughed at me and called me a big baby. After she drained it she put a cloth strip in it so that the inside will heal quicker then the top.



Thank you ladies for all your advice and help!

I am so glad you went to the ER. It looked painful and that is a massive amount of infected matter. I hope you have a quick recovery.
