basically, its an infection of your hair follicle. there's a red bump/sometimes white pus bump and its itchy and painful.
I've had a few here and there over the years, but I currently have 4 on my left leg (2 bad that are healing, one bad that formed today) and 5 on my right leg (3 healing, one neutral and one very itchy and painful that started today).
I don't have insurance or money, so I'm trying to avoid going to the Dr., but these are driving me crazy! According to multiple medical website they should go away in 2-3 days. But new ones keep coming. Any advice?
Edit: after the spots recurring and going back to the Dr. for a culture, its MRSA. So I have to use this special wash 5 days in a row while taking another round of antibiotics. If this ever comes back again, I'll be pissed. As of right now, the Dr. said no shaving, and when I do, use only an electric razor.
