    sore and no new skin replaced/ Micro Bacteria ?
    An_248284 posted:
    I had a small bump come up on cheek bone area, then it turned into sore, then it blacked and sunk in. It was getting bigger and bigger then I realized It wasnt just one place, There were more bumps coming up around it and spreading. Now there are bumps a 1/4 of an inch away. It started about 1 and 1/2 to 2 months ago and I am scared to death. There is no new skin. It just sinks and turns blackened. My face is swollen on one side. I have been to Advanced Dermatology and now he sent me to W. GA Infectious Desease Center. They are working together on it now. They have taken now 5 biopsy's and 2 came back neg. Now they say others could take up to a month. Checking Micro Bacteria stuff. I am on Clarithromyc 500 MG and an antibiotic ointment and 600 mg Calcium and 5000 IU Vitimin D3. Is anyone out their that has had something similar? It's eating my skin and not replacing it. Help........
