This is absolutely way TMI for the poor readers of my blog, but I’m so relieved that I was finally able to pop the biggest, most blood-and-puss filled thing that had been living behind my left ear for the past week, in the hidden area where the lobe attaches to my face. 😧🤢😅 I soaked a washcloth with disgusting goo that I squeezed from it, which very nearly made me puke, so you know it had to be bad.
No lie, this thing had been so “full” lately that I was worried that the infection might enter my jaw or my brain. 😯😷 But at the same time, I was determined that I was not going to go to the ER, and instead just leave it up to fate to decide. 😳 But now that 3/4 of the goo has been removed from it, I’m feeling much less concerned. I’ve soaked my ear in peroxide, and now have a generous coating of generic neosporin on it. 🤷♂️ All better. (ie: I’m going to continue to just ignore it.)
