Why would he feel the need to do that
Call the hospital and see what they think? I had an abcess that was hard as a rock. And mine was the deadly hospital staph version.
I went 5 days before I went to the hospital, and they said if I would have waited any longer.....well I wouldnt be here now!
I had to have surgery to remove it. Very, very painful. Call the E.R.
after going to the ER, you might want to take him on over to the psych hospital.
