Patient :Do I need to return to the ER? I had an abscess lance under my left breast Nov 7 and I am packing it, but now I have another one under my left flank with a temp. 99.9. It is by the size of my fist. I am type 2 diabetic and I get the skin infections back to back on the left part of my body. I have tried everything. Nothing is working.
