i've never had a serious bite like this and i gotta say it hurts like a sommummabitch.
i ended up going to an urgent care office on friday after work after showing my mother my leg when just a day before i was so blase about it thinking it was simply an ingrown hair. um. no. not that. i got a shot of strong antibiotic along with another prescribed antibiotic. yuk. sometimes i think antibiotics are the devil.
so i went through the weekend in major pain with the bite not getting too much better. i made an appt with my general practitioner to see her on monday morning. she proceeded to tell me that sometimes our bodies build up immunities to "new" antibiotics so they have to go back to the "old" ones. she has now got me on an "old" antibiotic mixed with a "new" antibiotic. dear lord. i feel like crap. i hate the way antibiotics make me feel. however, my bite is getting smaller and doesn't hurt as bad.
