Thanks for your reply. I'm asking about this because with such condition I was having symptoms of bacteremia and I was scared of this. It was at a time that I was having blood test done and I wasn't feeling well due to this condition. The women who drew the blood from me told me "I don't look so good and said why your blood is pumping hard." Ever since I've been wondering about this. I had a pumping feeling in my stomach. I was breathing hard and constantly this pumping feeling in me wouldn't stop. It was at a time that I had this condition and had boil under my arms.

I'm going to see my dermatologist soon do you think it's something I should let him know what I experienced? Please let me know soon.
