So, I've had this abscess near my bikini line for a while. It losed up, but then filled up again. Like an idiot, I punctured it. I went to the doctor several times--it's not big and it didn't require lancing or draining. I was given antibiotics and Mupirocin ointment to prevent against MRSA.
The abcess closed up, but it won't go away--it's this red spot that's just kind of....there. It doesn't hurt or itch. But I'm concerned that it hasn't gone away.
Moreover, I had tried putting bandages over it, but my skin reacted HORRIBLY as I have a latex allergy. That healed as well, but once in a while, the areas where the bandages were will start to flare up and itch.
I wish I could see a dermatologist right now, but I can't afford to until I get decent health insurance from my job, which won't be until December 8th. Until then, I have no idea what's wrong, I worry that the skin rash flare-ups could be a blood infection or something to do with the abcess--but I suppose if it was something like blood poisoning I would've had fever, chills and been in the hospital or something.
Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
