I had a bad run of seizures recently and ended up in hospital etc for a few days. Three weeks later and the infection in my lip still hasn't healed, although it is getting there slowly. I bit it up quite badly and you know what human teeth are like, swarming with ugly bugs.
The same thing happened about a year or so ago, almost identical, and although the gp gave me antibiotics the specialist said it was a viral infection. So I said that to the A&E dr this time... and he gave me antibiotics again! Unsuprisingly they made no difference to my lip but have upset my guts. Brilliant.
I'm so glad I don't live in Australia, they have such insane weather. Come to the Lucky Country, your kids can be ten years old before they see rain and then be drowned in a flood 30 minutes after the storm starts.
