I thought it was a pimple but it's gotten larger and fever in it as the day has gone by. It's hurting more as well. I'm thinking it's staph. I'm also a diabetic. I am really worried. Go to er as urgent care is closed or wait?

What's your blood sugar doing? I do everything I can to avoid the ER.  Have you taken tylenol for your fever?

As bad as it sounds. I would have popped it by now.

You have 2 threads about this. If you want to go in, go in.

I'd wait until tomorrow , but that is just me. Take a hot bath, hot packs and compresses.

It's been running high all day. Fever is just in the leg. No Tylenol or anything of the sort.

That's not a fever. Go to urgent care.

Don't pop it! That will open it up to more infection.

Everyone knows that, but I would have by now because , well... It would scream at me.

Blisters too, with my medical background you would think I know better. Nope. I pop my blisters too
