Sick and Wrong

There is nothing better than an abscess that has the pressure built up so much that it spurts a foot as soon as it is incised. I think they are my favorite office visits.

Love them.

Biggest vulvar abscess I've seen was about the size of a football. Worst place for one (that I've seen) : right on the clitoris. OUCH!

Reason #1 I'm a neurologist. No pelvic exams.

I'm slowly beginning to realize that anything horrible that you can imagine the body doing to itself, or that other things can do to it, can and does happen ...

ugh, an abscessed Hoo Hoo?

True, Dr. G, but you do get to do breast exams ...

seriously?! how on earth does a woman let it get that bad w/o going for treatment? (hell, how does she sit down w/o it rupturing, for that matter?) that's just...wow...wrong on so many levels....

Go on Youtube and do a search of abcess, sebaceous cyst, zit popping, etc and you'll find some truly glorious video.

I thought Doc G's breast exams were hound dogs... ;)

And, no STB, I have NO IDEA how she made it that long before getting seen. The size of a football!!! OMG!

She fumbled, I guess.

And it sounds like nobody scored, either.

Yerk. Must have been painful.
