Hi anyone reason this.
I apologise in advance for TMI but am so sore right now I just need to ask.
I have an abscess on the top of my thigh in my pubic area. It is a result of an ingrown hair that has become infected.
I'm 38 weeks pregnant so it's just a barrel of fun at the moment!
I originally thought it would turn into a pimple and would just go away but after a few days it just got bigger and sore. I saw a doc yesterday and she said its turned into an abscess and given me antibiotics and cream. I am taking 4 tablets a day and she said in 48 hours it should start to feel better. She doesn't want to drain it as I am close to having the baby and she said the wound would hurt during labour.
It feels like it has gotten sorer over night but I am not sure if this is normal. Like it gets worse before it gets better. It stings and I can hardly walk because of where it is and it rubbing on my other leg. I got about 3 hours sleep last night so feeling emotional today.
Just wondering if anyone else has had one of these and if it does get better after the 48hours? Or if there is anything else I can try at home at the same time to relieve some of the pain.
Thanks and sorry this is so log!
