    The last time I saw a doctor was for a absess and the question I got was what do you want me to do which is normally the other way around but I normally get anti - biotics but I can't use the lower strength one's I've got to use the strongest one's and that is well before I go to hospital to get it lanced as I don't think I should use a bed up just for this.

    Yeah - I got thrown when my doctor asked me what I wanted to do about such and such.

    At least first give me some options!!

    Hi. Is your blood sugar under good control? Elevated blood sugar can cause higher infection rates.

    My Dr is like talking to a brick wall ... I talk .. they don't listen .. I talk .. they look blank .. I leave .. nothing sorted ... I now stay at home and talk to the wall, cutting the middle man (Dr) out completely !!!!!!
    If its something that can be fixed by the wife I leave it up to her .. sadly she did not master the art of open heart surgery, so had to trust the medics for that, and yes they did muck it up :(

    yes they can do something about it, I had the aria of skin removed and have never had one from then and it was the hospital recommended that.

    They grow anywhere as I have had them on most parts of the body and the most painful are the groin and base of your back
