Hi Dr Phil, I don't seem to be able to see your answer.
Hi I'm Dr. phil
Can I ask your first name?
nice to meet you
This is absolutely correct Paul
This is not really scar tissue though
more like residual infection
that will heal up over time
But nothing to worry about
the abscess kind of retracts into this spot
So is it like a build up of Calcium for example?
that is a good way to think of it Paul
OK, it kind of makes sense as it is still slightly tender and has reduced so much but left this deposit I guess...
So my body will eventually break it down... Timescale approx?
yes it is basically the body walling off the residual infection
usually lasts for a few weeks
3-4 I would estimate
OK perfect... many thanks for your help and I can crack on now... Thanks doc :)
you're welcome :)
would you mind rating positive before leaving?
of course and many thanks :)
