So guys I need some advice and words to help me stay calm. This year has been rough. Ive been through a lot. Some years ago I went through a health related scare. It was terrible because it messed with my mental health. I had to be put on anti-depressants and what not. Ever since if something little happens with my health start to think the worst and have overwhelming anxiety. Ive been having anxiety lately because long story short we had a bed bug infestation and ive been getting bit all over my face. My skin reacted bad so now i have bumps and whatnot. Everything was going well I was washing them with soap and warm water till some from under my face started to hurt and pulse a bit I thought it was tea tree oil that I applied so i left it be for 2 days. I saw that the pain wasn't going away so I went to my doctor today and she said it looked like the beginning of an infection so she prescribed me antibiotics every 6 hrs for 10 days... and a skin cream ointment antibiotic. She said if I wasn't getting better that I should go to the E.R that freaked me out. Just taking medicine freaks me out cause I start to feel dizzy and such. Im so scared guys... if i were to go to the e.r they would save my life right? >.<

Heres a pic: WARNING LOOKS GROSS /:

This was yesterday , it looks a bit less red today but it still hurts. I would take a picture but i have a bandaid with coconut oil and witch hazel on it. I applied the antibiotic cream as soon as i got home. And took the antibiotic pill. I hope i heal by tomorrow/:

UPDATE: cotton fell off so i decided to snap a pic. It still looks red :/ maybe it will go down tomorrow since antibiotics take time to kick in . Sigh* https://postimg.org/image/xfrkhohnp/

Calm down, it doesn't look that bad.. believe me, i've seen bad. The antibiotics will help clear it up, just do what the Dr. says and take them all, even if the infection goes away, you take every thing from the bottle. Keep it clean and dry, bacteria love warm and wet places, so keeping it dry is a MUST. Go to walmart and go to the pharmacy section and get medical tape, medical pads, and what ever else you think might help. Calm down.

If you went to the E.R. they would do their best to help, but you aren't going to die.T They'd give you and IV with antibotics and something for a fever/pain to help. They may admit you to administer the iv antibotics, but it's okay, don't worry.

Also, don't touch the infected area without gloves on or washing your hands with a germ killing soap. Do not touch it unless you are cleaning it, messing with it, will irritate it and make it worse.

thank you very much. Ive been washing it with warm water and soap then applying the antibiotic ointment. Ive also been covering it with cotton . My throat feels infected today but i have to give the antibiotics 48 hrs if I don't feel better by then i need to go to the e.r . I think its weird how my throat lymh nodes hurt while the bite is too . The doctor mentioned it being close to the neck lymph nodes and she seemed concerned/:
