Son I'm afraid this is a stereo disaster.

You need to stop dicking around, a staph infection is no joke, you need to get antibiotics and treatment. My father almost had to have his leg amputated because of a staph infection, if you try to let it heal on ti's own there's a chance they might not be able to "save" your nose. Who knows, maybe it'll heal, or maybe your laser surgery will be the end of it. Hopefully that cream you put on your nose IS antiseptic cream meant for staph. If not go get something official.

My condolences man, that sucks really bad. I wish you the best of healing luck.
Now,

1. Get your nose treated, loving now, I'm not joking, stop reading this thread, go get something done to it, bt if they say anything about lasers run like a motherfucker.

2. Sue so that they have to pay to fix your nose, AND for whatever, loving your nose in the first place. (lol, nosefucking)

3. This is a numbered list, it is in numerical sequence, therefor should be listened to.

First off, I didn't think they would do something like this when you aren't even through puberty yet.

Second off, all the sue goons, shut the gently caress up, have you ever had surgeory?

First off, you want him to heal instantly. I had a cyst removed on my hand that had me out for a couple of days to heal. It's not going to heal because you want to see a perfect nose before you log off. None of my operations took less than four days to get healed from.

Second, YES, his mother signed something. They don't go, "OMG HERE you go if something Happens MONEY MONEY MONEY!" If this is an alergic reaction then more than likely the doctor is covered.

It's like the blind leading the blind.

Oh, and by the way:

I just now read this thread from beginning to end. I used to be totally self-conscious about my face when I was younger, so I slightly know how it feels to think that your nose is red when it actually looks fine. I used to get zits all over my nose in grade school and everyone would make fun of me. :(

It seriously is starting to look better; just try and be as careful as you can. Good luck, dude.

That's Augmentin 875, which is a pretty strong antibiotic.

Edit: oh it's Amoxicillin and Clavulanic acid, which work well together.

This has nothing to do being impatient with healing normally, and it has nothing to do with allergies. He has a bacterial infection, and signed waiver (waivers definitely prevent lawsuits :rolleyes: ) or not, if the doctor did not provide proper postoperative care or instructions he's pretty much at fault. You can't just cut someone open and let them loose on the world--in a way, the procedure is not over yet and he is still under the doctor's care.

It's looking better already, but that should totally not stop you from asking a doctor (even if it the same one) what the gently caress went wrong and why he didn't tell you anything if he knew right away.

And never let lasers near any other part of your body. Ever. Under any circumstances. Unless kidnapped by a James Bond villain.

Well, it's possible that you could get Versapulse laser treatment. That doesn't result in bruising/scabbing like mine. Go talk to your dermatologist and see which laser treatment would be right for you...

So do you actually feel sick? I've had two infections that were bad enough to be treated with antibiotics and both times I felt terrible on top of having open oozing sores all over my arms/face/legs. It wasn't fun in either case either :(

It wasn't ever really confirmed that I have a staph infection or whatever, it was just a precautionary diagnosis made by that female doctor.

I don't feel "ill," or anything. The only pain I'm experiencing is when my nose is touched.

I had a Staph Infection on my knee earlier this year. It looked a LOT worse than that, since my dad refused to let me go to a doctor until I showed it to him about 3 weeks later. I was lucky, I guess, that I didn't have to get anything randomly amputated.

When it's your own, it's just different. I've had quite a few injuries that, had I seen pictures of it I might retch a little but because it's my own body, it doesn't bother me. I'm absurdly allergic to poison ivy and if I get any where near it I break out in oozing sores that look a lot like Gumby's nose but I get them on any exposed skin. I've also popped my own knee back into place before and that didn't bother me too much. Let's not talk about my hernia or the first aid I've had to do in my life. It's just different when it's your own body or if it's your job.

Bantha_PooDoo came out of the closet to say:

Of course it does. Ever had a bad sun burn that started to peel? I'd say that the redness of the skin under the scabs is a good thing because it shows that there is blood flowing which means that A) It's not scar tissue and B) It's still healing. When it starts itching, that's when things are looking really good.

edit: Having had some serious skin infections in my time, you'll probably be surprised how well it heals up. Scar dissue doesn't usually form for something like an upper tissue injury which is what you have. It usually forms for deep tissue trama like surgery or a stab wound, or something. I remember one open poison ivy sore that had to be 1/8th of an inch deep right on the meat of my forearm once. Can't even identify exactly where it was now.

Is your brow twitching all the time? 24/7? I dont think the laser therapy would have an effect on your eyebrow, but I could be wrong.

One time I was helping a customer at work she asked me a really stupid question and at that moment my right eye started to twitch. Holy poo poo, the look on that old ladys face. It must have looked like I wanted to jump over the counter and beat her retarted. I've never seen an older person shuffle away at such a fast pace. Ahh good times.

As tacky as it sounds, it probably looks a lot worse than it really is. The bruising is gone, (at least in the most recent picture) and the skin that is open looks pretty good. The scabs are so dark because they were formed with a lot of blood. That's no surprise considering how bad the bruising was and how much blood corses through a nose. The puss obviously makes it look loving awful but is usually a good thing because that's how your body fights an infection like that. Just keep it as dry as possible. Well, maybe dry isn't the right word. Let me put it this way: carry a hankerchief (but keep the hanky clean and change it often) around with you and dab it every once in a while to keep the scabs from getting too wet and coming off early. When it starts looking better maybe try some calimine lotion on it. It'll dry out the skin and forms a second-scab over the top. Plus you can tell if it's weaping because the fluid will come out through the lotion.

I wish I had pictures of a guy I did first aid on who had some burns when he tried to blow out and alcohol camping stove (something that you are told quite explicitly, not to do). It looked terrible but in a couple weeks you could hardly see anything.

Do you mean "why didn't she elaborate or test for staph" by "no recourse"? It's obvious it's an infection so determining that it's staph doesn't really matter. Antibiotics treat all that poo poo.

Before I forget, what antibiotics are you on again? Fairly high-dosage amoxicillin?

edit x2: I'm about 90% positive AMOX is amoxicillin which makes sense. Be sure to eat a fair amount of yogurt every day (whether you like it or not) so you don't get the runs.

Sounds like a little nerve damage from the procedure. Once the skin is better healed it should go away. I doubt it will cause any long term problems.
