Hi Anonymous

You need to go to the ER. Right now. As soon as you read this message get your things and go.

This is a serious situation and this type of infection can really blow up over a few hours and put you in an ICU bed. You need emergency medical care and IV antibiotics. I am not being alarmist, I am not joking.

Go Now. Please let us know how you are after you get treatment.
