From time to time I have a pour in my skin that gets over and becomes almost a hard marble under the skin. They don't hurt and usually don't bother me unless it gets poped. Made that mistake once and it abscesses up had to be lanced drained and cost me more then enough at the er. Now it seems on has decided to become a. Infected cyst or boil. It's on my back so I can't really see it. I've been taking antibodies for the last 3 days hot compresses hot baths with epson salt and drawing saves but still nothing. I'm ok with a deep hole I just want it to drain but I can't Fford to go to the er .
