Bushwhacked by a pimple!  
Ugh, haven't beene having a good time of it this week so far. Last Thursday/Friday I had a large pimple on my lower back. Didn't think much of it, I popped it and drained a bit and figured that was it. Over Saturday and Sunday though, it started developing into a sore red spot and on Sunday at work I just started feeling sick and getting the chills. Was so tender I had trouble walking. Monday morning it was quite large and I could feel lots of pressure, so I went straight to the clinic across the street when I got up.

Turns out it was a huge staph infection and the doctor numbed and cut it open immediately. It drained A LOT, like a scary amount of crap coming out of my back. Currently, its all cut open and packed full of gauze and taped up. I am do to go back tomorrow and have it looked at, repacked, etc. and they are doing a culture to see if its the MRSA strain of staph, hopefully not.

I doubt its an MRSA strain of staph, otherwise you wouldn't be feeling better at this point. Please be sure to follow the advice I gave you as well as your doctor of course hehe. As you know, I went through the same thing last year so I have plenty of experience with this kind of staph infection. Sadly you popping that pimple on your back may have caused the infection as staph usually enters from an opening in the skin :(. Not saying its your fault of course, this kind of thing just happens.

Again, I wish you a fast and painless recovery my furiend *comforts*.
