oh no, not again.
posted on my f/b:

freakin' cellulitis, LEAVE ME ALONE!~ this is at least twice in 6 weeks. hoping to see my primary dr tomorrow because i can't take this pain a whole lot longer. the urgent care dr said i might need a specialist to cut and drain it and pack it if it doesn't get waaay better by like tomorrow or tuesday. ugh - no way, not.gonna.happen.

UPDATE MON: saw my dr and ended up having a minor surgical cut and draining. it hurt like @#$%^&* but it was done and over pretty quickly. then he told me that i get to go see him each morning this week to have the packing removed and the wound cleaned and re-packed. OMG. because of where it is, i get to have gauze wrapped around my head like they do in cheesy medical shows. ugh. hoping tomorrow that i feel way way better. he did culture it btw, so we will see what it is in a few days.

Re: oh no, not again.
well i had the first episode around 15 august, then a smaller one about 10 days ago and now this one that is as terrible as the first time. so i don't know if it never cleared up all the way or is separate episodes. but the dr i saw said it may not even be staph, which is what she is treating for based on symptoms. when i asked 'well what if it isn't'' she said that a specialist would have to get involved next time (please God, no next time) and cut, drain and culture it to figure out what germ it is before they can treat it correctly. if this one drains it can't be cultured because i am already on antibiotics.

less than an hour till i can call MY dr and get an appt -- hopefully for today but based on recent experience i am not expecting that to happen.
