TravelingChris Posted November 1, 2012 Share Posted November 1, 2012 On Tuesday, my dd had what she thought was a strange pimple on her cheek. Yesterday, she was doing college work and I didn't see her in the morning. Around noon, I went grocery shopping for a little while, came home, and her spot had grown and now she had dusky red in the undereye area. I called her doctor and we sent her a text with a photo (her doctor has half day on Wednesday), and then I drove her to the ER. Between the time I came home and we left for the ER, she already looked worse and that was only 20 minutes. We were seen in the ER fast and she was first diagnosed with an abscess. However, when the doctor tried to lance it, no pus came out and it just bled and bled. He decided, yes it was cellulitis and prescribed an antibiotic and pain medicine. I had to be hospitalized three years ago with an antibiotic resistant periorbital cellulitis and I would appreciate the following prayers- that the antibiotic works and that she doesn't turn out to be allergic to the antibiotic. She had never had this kind and her two siblings and myself are all three allergic to sulfa drugs and it is a sulfa antibiotic. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
