    Exclamation Please Help Can Someone tell me what this is... pics inside

    Last Tuesday i wake up to a pimple sized bump under my jaw... it itched really bad so i scratched it until the next day it swelled up i popped it and this clear fluid came out... then on thursday it started to hurt and the area was very tender and itchy... i was thinking about going to ER but i was advised to just wait till the morning to see my family doctor... he told me it was probably an insect bite that i infected by scratching it he thinks i may have a STAPH infection so he puts topical antibiotics on it and prescribes me a ZPACK... today i was looking at the scab that formed on wednesday it was beginning to annoy me so i took it off to reveal a little yellowish green snot looking thing... i applied pressure to my"sore" which is about a half dollar size... this puss starts oozing out and blood also comes out... i wipe it away to see the green thing stil there, looks like snot... then i take a paper towel and i start messing with the green thing i though it was just a scab of some sort... i get a hold of the green thing i pull it thinking it was just covering the sore but to my shock it pulls out of a hole... it looks like a 1/2 inch bogger its totally gross... even grosser is the hole left... check out the following pictures and please tell me what you think...

    i'm scared people keep telling me i may lose tissue and all this crazy stuff

    Hi,
    Well I must say that looks pretty nasty, My son has gotten those about three times now, We went to the doctor and was labeled having a staff infection and given both antibiotic meds and cream. Once you get all the **** out of the sore, your on you way to recovery.. yes we had the clear fluid, them the bloody fluid and the yellow and green puss. We always kept it clean, we even cleaned it out with hydrogen peroxide a few times a day. Don't let it get a big scab on it until you know for sure that it is done draining, if you keep a band-aid on it, the sore will stay moist and most likely won't scab. I know it's hard to ignore but let the medication work. Did the Doctor say he wants you to come back??

    THank You so Much karen!!!

    It itches did your sons itch? doctor never said he wanted me to come back... did his dr recommend cleaning it out with peroxide? how long does it take to heal and does it leave behind a mark? should i urge the doc to see me again in the moring?

    thank you so much for your help

    Hi,
    No they did not say to clean it out with hydrogen peroxide, I just did it because the infection was so great. my son's itched a little but not to bad. I would let the medication work and then decide if you need to go back to the Doctor. My son did have a scar but after awhile it did go away, we put coco butter cream on it once all the infection was gone. We were told that helps scar tissue heal better. Now that you have gotten the infection out I bet it dose not hurt as much.
