    Uhm I was just wondering this a week ago, but thought it would go over, a few cuts look infected and one really is, with pus etc, kinda nasty. The cuts are from at least 2 weeks ago and healing kinda slowly, but they were pretty deep. Anyway its still infected. Is it really necesarry to go to a doc or will I just be fine in a while? Do I get realy sick or something? Feeling sick, dizzy, headache and fainted last week, maybe because of the infection? I dont know, maybe its because of my anti depressive meds or i'm just sick, lot of people are here. I'm just wondering what happens if I wont go.

    Ive asked a few people Blubs in chat, and they think you should see a Doc. Any time a wound gets infected its best to be on the safe side, im not sure feeling sick, being dizzy etc is related to the infection, but please see a Doc. Worse case scenerio of an infection is blood poisoning I think, and possible death...so I dont want you taking any unneccessary risk :hug:

    depending on what you cut it might actually fall off.

    but yes also blood poisoning, skin necrosis, and my god will you suddenly find out what pain feels like!!!!
