ok, this is not my first abscess, (one on my shin, two in my toes, and 2 in both of my front teeth) but every single time we came in, the doctor told us "if you had come in a day later, the infectino would have seeped into his shin bone and it would've been very serious." then for my toes she said the same thing. then for my teeth the dentist said that either the infection was going towards my brain, or that my brain saw my teeth as an external body and was attacking them. So what I'm scared about is, I have an abscess in my earlobe now, it isn't big enough to be seen, but it can be felt, and I noticed it on tuesday or wednesday, and my mom refuses to take me to the doctor "on such short notice". so is there any way to tell how long I have until any one of the above mentioned things happens?
