My boyfriend has been having some weird problems and it is starting to freak me out. About 3 months ago, the inside of his nose starte to hurt really bad. At first, his mom, who is a nurse, said it kind of looked like herpes. It's been 3 months and I do not think that's what it is anymore. Around the same time he got this bump on the side of his neck. It looked like a zit except it was much bigger and clear, not white inside, and it wouldn't pop. Then a couple days ago he got this humongous bump right in the middle of his back up above the shoulder blades. He said it was about the size of a gold ball and it started to ake his tatoo looke all cracked and stretched apart. He said his mom tried to pop it, but it wouldn't. Yesterday, he woke up puking, and he was puking up blood. Whether this is related or just a coincidence, I have no idea but I told him that it's not normal and he needs to get his butt to a doctor. I have told him over and over to go see a doctor from the time his nose started hurting. I am thinking he is afraid to find out what he has. This a 22 year old guy I am talking about here and he won't go do the doctor! I am wondering why his mother hasn't told him to go, she has told him to go before when he had a problem with his nose. (Totally unrelated and turned out to be an ingrown hair) Does anyone have any idea what in the world this could be? It is starting to worry me becaue it could be something really serious, or it could turn out to be something that can be taken care of with antibiotics. I won't know until he goes to the doctor, but I can't make him do that. What should I do, and if anyone has any possible idea what all this is, PLEASE let me know!!!
