today i visited my gp. my pa kristen took me.
it was an ok visit. he looked at my abscesses, and said they arent actually abscesses, that the area underneath my stomach is all infected, red, sore, and has a few spots that are kind of like abscesses they come up and then break oozing pus.
the gp put me on oral antibiotics and an ointment cream. the antibiotics are for six days. he told me to clean the area thoroughly before putting the ointment on, so when i went to get my prescription at the chemist i got some antiseptic to clean it with.
my doctor said if the redness and infected skin havent cleared after the weekend that I should come back in. hopefully these meds will do the trick though and it will clear up.
