Please help: Painful Pin-pricking Sensation..

Recommended Posts

I broke out pretty bad about 5 weeks ago....I have never in my life experienced something like this. After a month of it not going down, I decided to go to the doctor. He told me I had what looked like pustular acne and abcesses caused by a staph infection, and gave me cephalexin and on my way I went.

The pain has subsided considerably, and things are clearing up, but I am getting these sharp pin-pricking sensations in the areas Im broken out every now and then..and they HURT. It feels like im a) being bit by a small bug or b) being pricked with a porcupine quill. Its that sort of sharp, pinching/pricking feeling.

Has anyone ever experienced this or does anyone know what this might be?

The only way to stave it off is to chow down on IB Profen and Im already unhappy being on antibiotics as I dont like medicine.

Please help :(
