I'm a little worried becuase I woke up with this on Monday morning. It's large, like a dime and painful. I have looked it up on this site (nothing) and on the internet. I found some stuff about carbuncles and boils which sounds like what I have. However, (this is where I get scared) it seem whenever I look up any of my fibro related symptoms on the internet it pulls up a bunch of HIV/Aids related symptoms sites. It freaks me out that I might have HIV instead of fibro. I have tested negative. Is it just me or do these diseases have a lot of the same symptoms? Also, if anyone else gets boils or carbuncles let me know how you treat it . Thanks.
