Eddie, I completely understand. I deal with those quite frequently. Sometimes what I've found that helps is get in a hot bath tub, as hot as you can stand it. While the water is running, add about a 1/2 cup or less of regular bleach. I know it might sound crazy, but it works for me. The bleach for me tends to bring them to a head. Also, if you can go without wearing a bra at all, please do. Sometimes just the friction alone can cause it to become worse. Let me know if you have any questions.

Eddie, try the hot soaks... If you can't sit in the tub, then take HOT wet compresses to the area. (As hot as you can stand it). That will usually bring it up to a head and you may be able to gently massage it to open the head and squeeze out the crap that's in there. If it does not bring it up to a head, then continue with the hot compresses and also if you can, don't wear your bra so it doesn't get irritated. I hope that it helps you get through until you can get to the doctor. I'm sorry you can't go to the hospital or to the Urgent Care but I pray that you get some relief soon.

Update I have been soaking in the hottest tub had hot wash rag on it and it got to that point where I leaned back to a door frame and moved back and forth slowly and I felt a wet spot running down my back I got cleaned up again and at least it's at a eight instead of a 15 thanks the reason I can't go to regent care or hospital is with out insurance for a few more days and would have to pay more than I have #stupidsomeoneis
