Hi, my dad has a lump on the back of his neck, which, after my mum popped it has a white discharge.
On the first visit to the hospital we were told it was some sort of infection and given antibiotics.
On the second visit to the hospital we were told it was an apsiss and that my dad could take ibuprofen for the burning pain he was getting. The lump had gradually began getting larger and is now causing discomfort preventing him from sleeping. The substance also now seems to be moving over towards his right ear.
He seems to go cold for a short while and then start shivering his nuts off. Afterwards he seems to get too hot.
He is also having recurring headaches starting at the top of the lump and working the way forwards. It also seems to be interfereing with his muscles and causing discomfort
There is also some bouts of wheezy nausia.
Can anyone help with a diagnosis as this is no way an apsiss as we were told on the first visit it was an infection. The doctor we saw today didn't seem to know what it was and seemed to be just guessing.
