A Big Zit
Posted June 29, 2008 at 04:51:11 PM by Bean
Went to the urgent care center for what I thought was a spider bite. Turns out it was an abscess (aka boil) and she had to cut it open to drain it. Mind you, the actual amount draining out was probably less than the size of a grape, but prior to her cutting in, it felt like a baseball in my calf. She packed the cavity with an iodine soaked "wick" to keep the wound open so it can drain some more.

At least it wasn't a sac of spider eggs like I thought!

spider eggs hahaha unfortunately it might have felt like something as bad as that though...

So, I'm very curious: has it been back? I recently got my first one (on my bum), and it kinda freaked me out. Reading all the horror stories of them being stubborn online has me totally spooked.
