The pimple on my right arm fizzled out, but the one on my left leg turned into a new lesion, about 4 cm from the previous one. Damn. It doesn't hurt yet, but if it follows the normal progression, it won't be long before it does. There's a new reddish bump on my left ring finger, too, that doesn't look good.

I'm stymied. Onion only helps with the pain, dissolves the scabs, and seems to kill little pockets of the bacteria. It doesn't seem to kill the primary infestations in the center of each lesion. I tried burning out the center of the left-hand lesion with a cigarette today, and it helped a little but nothing close to a cure.
