      Hi 1 James. After I had wrote this comment I went to doctors and we're prescribed stronger antibiotics than amoxacilin were told to to take the both together it took about 3 weeks to clear up and was extremely painful through out 2 weeks of the time. So I'd go to your doctors and ask for pain relief and antibiotics it will soon start clearing up. I'm still not in the clear tho as I have a stich now hanging out of my belly button were the scar is and we're told these would disolve I would keep your eye on this also
