    You have access to the Internet, Carol - why wouldn't you search for mucopolypoid disease and see what you find.  As Pauline says, it can look worse - but then you can find out so much more than posting a question here and hoping some random mucupolpoid expert happens to see it!

    Webmd is a good site and I'm sure there will be many others.  The only thing I will say is, if they recommend you take antibiotics NEVER let them prescribe Ciprofloxacin, Levofloxacin or one of the others that end in -floxacin.  These are called the Quinolones and they can have very serious damaging affects on your muscles, joint, gut, everywhere.  There are always alternatives. Never take them and pass this message on.

    Good Luck!
