So very happy I found this. I too found a small pea l size bump, being who I am I couldn't leave it alone. It became an abcess within a cpl days. Probably the size of a Brazil nut more long than circular. Found this site tried the tea tree oil, turmeric, baking soda, coconut oil combo. Made a paste and applied it to a piece of gauze and layer it on the abcess. While I can say it burned badly could only leave it on for a cpl hours while trying to sleep. I suspect it was the tree oil causing it to burn. The area before hand was almost raw looking. And the bottle of tree oil did say not to apply it to open wounds. Not sure. But anyway a bath before doing this did soften it a bit. I awoke this morning to it draining. Another bath and I applied another piece of gauze, we'll that was the wrong thing to do. It stuck to it. Ouch!! On getting it off. It does feel much better. I'm curious though how long it will take to completely heal. And should I go ahead and see a dr? I'm thinking since it's already drawing not much a dr can do. I also had a prescription for antibiotics that I started myself on. Thoughts?
