I'm going to see the gp after work about the monstrous carbuncle on my chin - thought it was just a cystic spot at first but the bit you can see is just the tip of the iceberg, there's a margin of about an inch under the skin. It's pulling my mouth up on one side - gp reckons that antibiotics won't clear it alone and it'll have to be drained. Will post after pictures later.

Ooh that is lovely. Please update. Sorry if it is painful though.

coughingbean Tue 17-May-16 14:25:07

Nice!!! Although poor you, you look really fed up! flowers

CakeNinja Tue 17-May-16 14:37:10

Amazing!!! 👏🏽
Although obviously sorry you're looking so glum. Stupid question, is it painful?

auldspinster Tue 17-May-16 16:07:48

Very painful if touched, stings rest of time, apt is in half an hour, got a feeling it's gonna hurt a lot more.

CakeNinja Tue 17-May-16 16:11:15

Ooh you poor thing, I'm not really surprised it hurts, it's fairly impressive to look at!
Hope all goes well for you.

Is there any chance you could take a friend? For support? And to hold your phone for a video. In the interests of medical science of course.

Hope it's not too sore but you are doing a beautiful thing

auldspinster Tue 17-May-16 17:46:12

It didn't need lanced as the pus is coming to a head so just antibiotics. Unfortunately I need to take them on an empty stomach so dinner is delayed.

auldspinster Tue 17-May-16 17:49:49

Here's another photo, got a lovely ingrown hair in the tache area to match. I had such lovely skin in my teens, could do without the breakouts now I'm in my 40s.

NellysKnickers Tue 17-May-16 18:15:01

That's a beauty, it's going to be beautiful when squeezed..........I'm rather jealous

Junosmum Tue 17-May-16 18:20:05

Oh wow. That's impressive. I'd ha e squeezed that myself (I did a boil once, the GP was not happy with me!).

auldspinster Tue 17-May-16 18:41:28

Much too sore to squeeze, will of course provide photographic evidence when the pus makes its break for freedom.

It burst during the night and is oozing pus, i put a tiny bit of micropore over the top while travelling to work but dunno if i should just leave it open to drain. Gonna be a bit of a pain having to dab away the pus all day.

Dowser Wed 18-May-16 09:01:32

You're never 40? I would have said 25.28 at the most!

That looks so sore. Wonder what started it off.

auldspinster Wed 18-May-16 09:20:22

Aww thanks. Mirena fell out during a heavy period and i've been taking norethisterone to stop the bleeding, think that could be to blame.

OhWotIsItThisTime Wed 18-May-16 19:32:56

Have you tried sudocream? It'll help keep it bacteria free.

coughingbean Wed 18-May-16 21:02:51

40?! You look good!

CakeNinja Wed 18-May-16 21:28:20

Oh my goodness, the photography is magnificent! Thanks so much grin
And I'd have put you at my age, 31!

paxillin Wed 18-May-16 21:31:59

This way --> Sporner Corner

CakeNinja Wed 18-May-16 22:25:23

Oh my god, had no idea sporner corner even existed!

AlpacaPicnic Wed 18-May-16 22:27:56

Ouchy! And in such a public area as well, you poor thing.

But I applaud your dedication to your fellow sporners flowers

StickTheDMWhereTheSunDontShine Wed 18-May-16 22:35:06

I reported your OP saying it needed moving!

That thing needs a name. It looks very sore, mind, and I don't think I coulld bring myself to call it anything gentler than Bastard Spot.

DawnMumsnet (MNHQ) Wed 18-May-16 22:45:54

Hi auldspinster,

Would you mind if we moved this thread over to our Sporner Corner topic?

It'll bring joy to the masses. smile

ps How can you be in your forties?! shock

auldspinster Thu 19-May-16 08:42:02

Not at all! Good genes i guess, my mum is 69 and looks like she's in her early 50s. Here's a pic of us on my 40th last year.

auldspinster Thu 19-May-16 08:46:39

Not forgetting the daily update, i accidentally hit myself on the chin while i was running for the bus and burst it and got pus all over my hand - thankfully i was prepared and stuck another bit of micropore over it till i got to work and able to clean it up properly.
