    Yes she did, Hound. She said it definitely looks like it's healing and said I should keep doing what I was doing before - putting on Neosporin and gauze. I felt it myself for the first time in the shower (I was afraid to touch it this whole time) and there was a lot of dead skin that I just wiped off. It was pretty easy... Now all that's left is a tiny little bump and it drains a lil because there's not much left. My doc said I can either visit a surgeon to getit looked at within the next few days (cause it's healing fast) or I can wait for the next time the cyst comes around. I'm still thinking about it...

    Well I guess seeing a consultant is something that will arm you with more info to make your choices, even if you do choose to live with it. However next time could be in a week, month, year or decade. It sounds like you have a great GP and you have learnt a whole lot about the condition. I'm glad you have been keeping us updated. Are the antibiotic kicking in and making you feel better?

    Oh yes! She is great and unlike any doctor I have ever seen before (I moved here half a year ago so I haven't been seeing her for long). She never rushed me and her reviews on the internet confirm my feelings about her - that she truly loves what she does and prefers to develop long term relationships w/ her patients (my fiance's parents have been going to her for over 20 years). The antibiotics seem to be working because I feel much better. The nausea, chills and fever all went away and I even have a little spring in my step. Let's hope it cleans my system out completely :)
