Hi, I hope I'm posting this in the right place.... I'll try not to post TMI... About three weeks ago I had a large abscess lanced. Everything seems to be healed for the most part, but the skin around and where the abscess/incision was made is very dark, purplish black at this point, and I don't know if I should be concerned about it or not.
Also, I have a small red bump that has developed almost directly beside where the original abscess was. It does not hurt whatsoever, but the fact that I know what it could possibly turn into has me very paranoid. I have been keeping the area cleaned and applying Neosporin.
Any advice or insight is much appreciated it. All of this was done at an ER center so I don't have a doctor I can directly contact about this that is familiar with he situation... I have been unhappy with my PCP lately so I don't want to contact him unless absolutely necessary.
