Anyways, can't see doctor without referral which won't be for two days. I saw my primary care doctor, and haven't heard back from hospital after the receptionist sent my paperwork. My arm has since then become extremely painful, red, a bit swollen, and going numb. developing rash down my arm.

Thermal burn from Nov 1st. Blistered really bad for 2 days, then turned blackish...then the outside (which wasn't as bad) healed up, but this part WON'T and it is hurting more and the outside of it is turning greenish brown in some places. I do not have money to go to the hospital right now, because it's not life threatening and it'll be really expensive! Ugh! What do I do!? Can I wait another day or two? It really hurrts!
