Nasal boils

Rapper T.I.'s niece, Kamaya Harris, posted the following photos on her Instagram page today. In the caption she wrote:

I wasn't going to post this but I wanted to share my flow for the past 3 days... They have been very miserable, very sleepless, & very painful but thru it all God is good almost over & I'll be back to myself soon

The "boil" is real

Based on the information in her caption, I'm guessing she is suffering from a painful boil (Furunculosis, Folliculitis) inside her nose that can be caused by Streptococcus pyogenes or Staphylococcus aureus bacteria.

You may recall my discussion on Staphylococcus Aureus in my Medical Minute post on MRSA. I told you that Staph lives on our skin and inside our noses. When the bacteria colonizes our noses it becomes necessary to decolonize the nose with antibiotics to prevent recurrent infections.

    T.I. Mike Vick Tiny Harris

    Yesterday I posted a contest giving my readers a chance to win tickets to T.I.'s concert at the Tabernacle on Friday and box seats to the Hawks vs Bulls game at the Philips Arena on Saturday. The response was so overwhelming that Grand Hustle's GM Hannah Kang allotted more concert tickets for my readers to win. So instead of giving away 4 pair of tickets, I will give away 14 pair of tickets! That's 24 chances to win tickets to T.I.'s concert at the Tabernacle on Friday (Dec. 21)! Sadly, only 4 pair of tickets are available to meet T.I. in his Suite at the Philips Arena on Saturday.

    There is still time to submit your Trouble Man CD photos! You have until 3 PM today.
