medical question  
ok! so Wednesday has developed a small lump, pimple size, underneath her skin half an inch under her nose. I originally thought it was an ingrown hair or a pimple or something like that so I took her to the vet & the vet thought it was a bug bite, the vet said it didn't have fluid in it so it definitely wasn't anything that was infected & it would just go away. it scabbed over for two days & then the scab fell off & it didnt look like there was an open wound or anything- but it started shrinking until I came home this afternoon & it got even bigger than before! & this time it looks like it's very irritated but it still doesn't look like there is any puss or fluid it in. She is going back to the vet Thursday for her lyme shot but I was wondering if anyone had any insight on to what it might be? I know my description is very vague & it could really probably be anything :P argggh!! I'm just one of those overly concerned moms really.

Something very like this happened to Obi a few years ago, on his eyebrow. I didn't know there was anything wrong until suddenly what looked like a scab peeled off. As it turned out, it was a fungal infection, most likely caused by a jab of a kitten's claw - the kitten had ringworm.

Not good news - he wound up needing surgical removal of the infection. He looks super-rugged from his scar. Hopefully Wednesday's issue will be much less complicated.

that sounds like quite an ordeal! i am glad it was nothing more serious than that!

it is looking a lot better now- but it still has me worried. i guess only time will tell.
