One of the guys I work with got a bump on his finger. Well, there are only a few of us who are going to get out of sorts over a little bump. He didn't think anything of the new bump. Then after a few days or so, the finger turned really red and there was swelling. He said he had probably been bitten by a spider.
He was determined to let his finger get better without going to the doctor. However, more little bumps popped up and they were filled with puss. Our supervisor finally told him to leave work and go to a doctor. The finger looked terrible.
This was just the beginning of his ordeal. He was sent to the hospital where they found out he had a staph infection. Everyone thought he was fine after treatment. He came back to work, but the infection came back, and he had lesions on his hand and he also had satellite lesions on his arms. He spent an entire year battling the infections. He was lucky that he didn't have any permanent damage to his body.
