I've had this for two days (Monday and Tuesday; it is now Wednesday for me). On Monday it was red, and swollen, with pus underneath. I figured it was an irritation from bad hygiene for the past few days - I get small bumps like that when I get really lazy -so I pinched it, popped it, and chewed away the deflated skin. There was definitely pus underneath it. I noticed earlier that it was back, though it feels slightly smaller, but it is now mostly grey and surrounded by white. It doesn't hurt much if I try to bite it gently; less than yesterday even. The decrease in sensitivity has me a little uneasy, though. No clue what it is, this is the first time I've had anything like that.View Thread
