@ZipLine: I have recently, during this spring and summer season, started getting bitten periodically by something, I don't know what. The first one was on my index finger, which got all swollen and a greenish-yellow pus filled blister formed, which I drained and it started feeling better. It also hurt like hell the night before I drained the thing.
The next bite was on my temple just behind the hairline, same deal. I had greenish-yellow pus, a pretty large, hard lump-like blister, which I had to drain several times but it finally healed in about a week. By that time I was already taking antibiotics for a tooth infection, so that helped.
The next bite was also right inside my hairline on the other side of my face, which took two weeks to heal after I drained it because I'd run out of antibiotics.
This current one is on my chin and the pain and the large knot forming is making eating painful. This time, it’s the same deal, but the pus is more greenish-yellow.
I wonder what is biting me this year because I've never before seen anything that color come out of me when I’ve been bitten by, you know, ordinary fleas or ordinary bugs. At first I thought it was the geography because I got the first one was in New Mexico, the second in upstate New York and now I'm in Western Massachusetts. Do these three places have some new breed of bug, bedbug maybe, or have I developed a severe allergy to whatever it was in all three states?
Another thing these things have in common is that I've been in cheap rentals with dodgy mattresses and furniture all three times. Back when I was younger and on mild antibiotics (tetracycline) for my acne regularly, these things didn't happen. Anyway, I fogged the room with insect foggers I'd brought back with me from New Mexico but I wonder what kind of insect I'm dealing with, so as to know what to kill it with, If I have to use at least 40 percent DEET as cologne while I sleep or sit still, I will!
