Well this is probably kind of a weird thing to post on a Blog but that is one reason i am posting it--
July 4th i was going to a party and after my shower i put powder on as i was gonna be outside all day and here in florida its HOT--
When i applied to powder to my stomach area it stung like heck -- and when i looked i had this oozing red sore --
i had never seen it before - i had NO pain--- i had no idea where it came from or what the hell it was....
i applied some gauze and anti biotic cream and went to the party--
Long story short is i have been doctoring this thing since the 4th.. antibiotic cream, along with peroxide , epsom salts, -- and although it has been getting better it is still raw, and infected.
i have scoured the "net" to see what it could be-- didnt look like cancer, didnt look like a boil, or cyst... the closest thing it looked like was a bed sore but it really didnt fit all the criteria for that either--
i finally decided to call the doctor and got an appt today--
turns out it is a yeast infection-- yeah -- how weird is that --
i had a C-Section 34 years ago and the incision was made vertically - so those stomach muscles are useless and that area kind of hangs down-- and the sore is underneath there....
doc said moisture got in that area and the yeast infection grew and then bacteria got in there and the infection set in--
i told him that i take a shower every day but he said that has nothing to do with it--
yeast infections can show up under your arms, in your groin, pelvis area-- where ever you sweat ---
so keflex antibiotic and a cream -- that is the fix for this sore--
ten days i should see major improvement--
so go figure that out?!?!?!!?
i worked in the ER and never saw anything like this- and my friend who is a nurse in the ER never heard of anything like this either-- she was as surprised as i was...
so the cure is POWDER-- baby powder-- desinex-- gold bond- whatever- doc said to always apply powder to those areas where moisture accumulates--
at least i know what it is now- and hopefully the dern thing will go away in a few days-- THAT WILL BE GOOD..
so that is my health lesson for the day!!!!
