Re: Bug Bite Like No Other

Hi there!

It doesnt sound like a bug bite to me at all. It sounds like it might be a MRSA infection. To know for sure, you'll need the doctor to inspect the area and maybe culture the wound.

I had an area exactly as you describe on my chin. I waited too long and it ended up needing to be surgically opened and drained. I also needed heavy doses of antibiotics. Go early to prevent any additional problems. MRSA is everywhere in the community and its nothing to take lightly.

Let us know how it turns out, okay?
