I had an infection in my darn face this past week, and it blew up the one side of my face and it was only in just the
last day or so it went down back to the normal shape of my face. Phew!!!!! Such a relief to have it over with!!!
And likewise the fact I never used any anti-biotic which I'm proud of.
thought I'd have to use something like an anti-biotic, having been suggested that by my doctor!! ~Egads!!
I've never had a face infection before. It is a highly unlikely thing usually (in the way it occured at least).
It resulted as far as I know from some mysterious insect (best guess) or some "foreign object'
of wtf proportion/denomination (God Knows). A small thorn maybe even it could have been (which
got in my face btw, by me laying on my pillow as my head hit it, or "side cheek" to be precise!)
Anyway I'm better now and I was not put out by it, apart from some slight soreness and the psychological perspective and wondering what the hell was happening to my face caused by even the smallest penetration of a foreign object!! Strange, isn't it?? Well I'm telling this just for your general interest, to indirectly make you feel better (as I know my infection is not the same sort of yours I guess) but the fact I resisted using anti-biotics really gives me hope for my body in these situations, and well, I am well fit physically at least, so that helps.... The way I got the swelling to go down ultimately, was to apply warm/ almost hot water with a sponge to the infected area every so often and I didn't allow the small scab to form for too long until nearing the #end#game#of#getting#better# as I knew it was best to let bleed some to let out the infection.
Sorry to go on about me Carried, but I do very much wish you well too, which is why I tell my recent event/story to depict for you how things that seem drastic do clear and get better !!
