Fast Forward 10 years to current:
Strange facial smell. Aprox. 6 open lesions, all on right side of face. Scalp sores, and athletics foot (sever) most of my nails have fallen off.
This began about 3 years ago with an under the skin eruption of what I thought was a pimple. After about 4 to 6 months of attempting to extract all of the congestion, I seen improvement. New nodules began to appear. I developed one on my rt, cheek, 3 on my chin, one on my frontal jaw line, 2 on my forehead and 2on my nose.
These were usually not painful but would become extremely festered to what appeared to be a white head. Not able to resist the temptation to squeeze, I would attempt to pop these things. Never once did any of these things pop, in fact they only multiplied and got larger.
About October of 2013, I started noticing a build up on my scalp. When I scrubbed my hair with shampoo it would hurt in a few spots. The spots felt like gaping holes and they would ooze. These were extremely painful and interrupted my daily living. While attending to my nightly routines of washing my face I discovered I very large lump on the lower right side of my skull. It was projecting up from my scalp and was about the size of my thumb. The next morning I called my FD and made a appt. to have her exam. She looked at my scalp and concluded that it was a fungus. And the knot on my scalp was a swollen lymph. Nothing was prescribed and I was told to go purchase Selcin Blue and that should cure me right up. After one week of use my condition had only gotten worse. I went to the pharmacy to see if there was any other product I could buy since it seemed that the blue stuff wasn't.
I was at a loss with all the products so I made my way to the Pharmacist on duty and explained my condition to him. He was very helpful in assisting me to a better product but he also advised me to contact my doctor for a script as the condition I was diagnosed with would not be cured with OTC shampoos. He explained to me that I needed a prescribed shampoo along with an oral anti fungus. I call the office and left this info with my nurse. I must say that I was more then surprised when the return call from my doc. Was to tell me to continue with the shampoo for another 10 day and nothing else was suggested. BUT THIS WASNT WORKING AND MY CONDITION WAS GETTING WORSE.
Frustrated by this and in great pain from these open sores I went to our local urgent care. There I was seen by a doc who examined my scalp and said it was a staff infection. She prescribed a round of antibiotics and I was on my way.
The scalp sores did heal but the growths on my face excelled. One of those that is on my chin took on a different look. I started looking like a wart. i left it alone until the moment I thought I seen a white looking sorta wormish thing poking out of it. It was one of those things that many here have described. It was a plug and there were many more to follow.
I worked that thing down over many weeks until I got every one of those things out but it wasn't until I began to use some Athletes foot cream on it until I noticed to start to die off.
Its been about 3 months and just last week that wart thing is coming back. I also still get scalp sores monthly and as of last week I now have a growth under my right eyebrow that bubbles and oozes with crud. I just want this to go away once and for all!
I will be seeing a derm. This thursday, but I do wish I could find a magic natural remedy to cure what ever this is that has plagued me.
