This is my third one in like a year. They hurt so damned bad. Which explains why I'm up at 3:00 a.m.  I guess it's an ER visit for me in the morning. 

Before you jump my shit, yes, ER.  The first one I had I went to my PCP, she sent me to the ER, where the doc told me I was in the right place. Second one, I just went straight there, as I will do this time.

Oh, yeah, this post is strictly a pity party. There's no one awake to feel sorry for me here. Lol

I get them too and use antibiotic cream that eventually clears them.  Why the ER instead of  dermatologist?

I've had ingrown hair or boil in my arm pit. That shit hurts like a mother fucker. Never had to go to the ER tho.

My mom's ended up with mrsa a few times.

I don't have a derm and by the time I get a referral from PCP and insurance approval it would be the size of a basketball.

I had one during the last month of my pregnancy, and it was very painful! My Dr lanced it and gave me antibiotic ointment and I never had another. Hopefully yours heals quickly.

Mine grow big and fast. Can't put my arm all the way down after a couple days.
