Not too deep, not too dirty. Decided to forgo a trip to the doc because I had a tetanus shot about 10 years ago and my deductible is kind of steep. It closed up quickly and 7 days later the pain is less.....BUT the area is still swollen. It feels a little warm, but no excess redness. Just hurts when I push on it. How long do these things take to clear up? At what point do i suck it up and go to the doctor?
