I will spare you a photo

Really, it's that I'm too lazy to take a picture and post it. If I'm going to do that, then I'll get mired in the process of sorting through those other photos I wanted to post, and nothing will ever get done.

And I also don't want to horrify and repel you, or show you The Scarlet Pimple.

Words must suffice. On my neck, above the larynx/Adam's apple zone, just left of center, I have a giant...thing. I believe it to be an ordinary pimple, but it's completely ignoring the tea tree oil assaults I have administered, and it won't shrink or appear vulnerable to a good, firm squeeze. It is not anchored to anything firm.

In short, this thing is freaking me out, not to mention those who behold it.

It needs a name. And there will be a poll in the sidebar for one week. Won't you please help name this evil baby?

Try some hydrocortisone cream, 2 or 3x/day. That ought to chill the fucker out.

I vote for none of those. My choice is "George Bush".

What, no Scarlet Pimplenel?

I voted for Helga, but I think I need to cast a write-in ballot for the Scarlet Pimplenel.

I have a big painful one right where the elastic of my undies hugs my crotch tendons. Ow. No one can see it, but I can sure feel it.

OMG I've got one too! Exactly the same place. Probably too late, but don't squeeze it. It then goes hard and apparently takes months to subside. My doctor assures me it is a cyst. it was angered by my recent house move, and got huge and infected. Had to take antibiotics that tasted like ground up toe nail clippings for a week. Fun.
