I got my first abscess 4 years ago. I started to get them again about 2 months ago and it went away, but I now have what seem like 3 in one area and it is very painful. I don't know what to do and am seeking help. Can anyone advise me for pain relief? I have pain meds but I am a mother of 3 and I cannot be on pain killers all day. My Dr sent me to a specialist for a colonoscopy but that isn't till next month. Also I have done some research and it seems like maybe I have Crohns but my Dr hasn't diagnosed me with it. Can you please advise for any tips to help me get through this painful season, thank you.
