Hello...I haven't had luck figuring out what these bumps are from doctors...yet. Still in that process. But thought I'd see if anyone here has a clue. I get these large, slightly painful, bumps that used to show up on my torso. It's always just one at a time, and start out looking like a normal pimple. Then they become large, painful, and have a scab in the middle. When they heal in a few weeks, they leave a scar. This has been happening for a few years. Then a few months ago, for the first time I got one on my legs. When it healed, a month later another shows up. Then another. 5 total on my legs. Now the current one is on my butt. My doctor said it was a MRSA infection, and gave me antibiotics. Then anther one showed up, so he did a MRSA culture test, which came back negative. I decided to see a dermatologist. He also said it looked like MRSA...another culture test, again negative. Since that one was healing, he said when I had another one, he would get a sample and do a biopsy. Well I have one now, but he's out of the country until next week. Hopefully by the time he can get a sample, it will still be there.
Anyway, anyone have a clue? I'd like to post a pic. (Of the previous one on my leg...not the current one on my butt) But every time I try to upload to my profile, it says internal error.
Sorry for the long story...just tried to get the important facts. And thanks for any info in advance!
