I visited the doctor twice to drain my abscess behind my ears. They said it wasn't an infection, but just blood when they took a culture. Now that it has healed, there's an indent where the abscess used to be as well as some protruding on the side of the indent. It feels as if it's completely drained, but the extra layer of skin caused by the abscess is still there. Will it ever go away? It's been several months.
