Y'all can decide what describes this mess later
There are furuncles and there are carbuncles, and it looks like you had the latter. (I knew that stuff I learned in Corps School would come in handy someday.)Not that you asked, but a furuncle is a boil with one head. A carbuncle, on the other hand, is a boil with multiple heads - yours had two. Looks like you are healing nicely. The way the wound is granulating in suggests you might have an interesting scar for your troubles.I'll send you my bill...or you can pay me in eggs, if that's easier.:)
Carbuncle is the word the folks back home would have used. That second head appeared late in it's unfortunate life. The hot waterboarding did the trick, but I give more credit to the triple antibiotic ointment. BTW, it ITCHES!!!
Itching, in this case (as you likely well know) is a good thing!Scratching, on the other hand, especially in public, probably not so much. Be well, friend.:)verification word (so help me): spedia, as in wishing you a spedia recovery?
