    For anyone out there who thinks they have this get checked right away!!

    mine went from a small itchy bump to a full blown infection within days.

    I had to have it cut open and cleaned out, it had gone pretty deep, over an inch.  This is nothing to mess with.  It's not going to go away by itself!

    I see that this was posted a year ago, but I'm 18 and already on my second surgery. Doctors think it will keep coming back.
