Well been exactly a week sence i got them, by friday/saturday they seemed to be going away. Then i wake up this morning only to find out that they flared up again and are quiet hard. The medication doesnt seem to help in anyway and the pain returned. So im thinking about going to a doc and putting some rubberbands over them. So i just wanted to know if anyone here has done it, and how painful is it.? Is ther any chance of infection?
