Three days ago I got a massive boil on my leg and I was concerned so I went to the Dr. He made an incision, drained it, packed it and gave me some antibiotics. Says it’s probably staph from bjj, although I’ll find out for sure in a few days time as he took a swab. 3 days later, the packing has been removed and now I have a small bandage over the incision. Just today the whole area around the incision became red and warm, so it still must be fighting the infection. Going to have to keep a close eye on it. If it gets any more angry I will probably be off to the hospital.
Was wondering what I could do to prevent this from happening again? Do rashes make any difference? I know it’s best to shower straight after class, but often by the time I get home it has been 30 minutes before I can shower.
I read in another thread of moisturiser with antibiotics in it? Anybody use this?
