I'm hoping he's gone in to the hospital tooLDP wrote: ↑Mon Aug 05, 2019 1:18 pmI hope so too. Given his absence here since the initial posts, I'd really hope he took the advice and sought medical treatment.

And of course they need a good confirmation on the assailant. They supposedly usually only treat the symptoms themselves and try to lessen the pain and reduce the swelling. Can someone please confirm this? My information might be outdated. (my age shows here)
