Bisul is also known as boils. Since last year, I was proned to having bisul. What causes it? I don't know...people used to say when you sit on a 'hot chair/bench' , it causes bisul.
This picture is taken from the internet. My bisul is scarier than this.
I thought it could be because I sat on the hot 'swimming pool' bench while waiting for my kid to finish his swim. At the same time, it could be because my car seat is hot when I went to fetch my kids daily...if the 'reasonning' about heat is true. Others said it is due to dirty bedsheet which is definitely not in my case as I wash the sheets often.
Bisul if left untreated can swollen into the size of a diameter of a cup. The pain could be unbearable.
So this is the 2nd time, I had serious bisul on my butt cheek. It just grew so fast and before I knew it, I was almost bedridden for a whole week. Too painful to sit, walk or move. Had sleepless nights due to the pain and the painkiller didn't work.
I should have not left it untreated for so long. I had a cream which if applied when the bisul has just started, it will go away after a few days....save all the drama.
Somewhere about day 4 of my 'bedriddeness', the bisul burst and all hell broke loose. The pain is unimaginable and thank God it was a holiday and hubby was around to 'attend' to my bisul. Thank God I married a man of medical background because I can't imagine having to go see a doctor exposing my butt everyday....yes everyday cause the dressing needs to be changed, sometimes up to 4 times due to the amount of puss oozing out.
So I had a week of 'rest' if unaccompanied by pain, would be perfect! My kids and hubby has to attend to the house chores and make sure there is food on the table. Hopefully after this episode my kids would realised how much I do for them everyday.
I have not fully recovered but at least I can walk like normal although sitting can still feel some 'bearable' pain. Would has not fully healed and in the process of healing, itchiness sets in! Aaaaargh...................
And....will never take bisul lightly again. If you know what causes bisul, do let me know. Prior to this, I never ever had bisul.
