I have a problem. I know what it is because I have had it before. Yesterday afternoon, I noticed a slight rash on my jawline and today it has tripled in size. I had it once before in mexico and was lucky enough that my father was with a doctor. He told me to get the strongest antibiotics available as it was staff a infection. I have no idea how I got it this time as I this is the first time its ever reoccurred in Mazatlan. Does anyone have any advice on what I should do.

It's much worse then the other time and it is growing hour by hour. I want to go home as quickly as possible but I know that I have to control it before I get home. I have sun life insurance so the cost is no problem, but I don't know where to go to get treatment.

Thank you to anyone that can give me advice. The last time I had it, it left a horrible scar on my neck and this time it is on my face. Freaking out.?...?yes.?.

Hey Gillian,

Unfortunately, I have no advice for you to help but just wanted to send you my best wishes for a speedy recovery. You know the great hospital to go to in Mazatlan though right?

Hando,

Duh....I asked for advice on where to go. Obviously I know I have to see a doctor.

Duh.....read posts thoroughly before you offer your words of wisdom.

Thanks Laura and Judy.
