  1. Esther Jacobs on

    I Had a dream my Son has 4 abscesses on his body, one on the chest, one on his hand, one on his back and the last on his private part

  2. I had a boil in the inner cheek. When I looked closely the boil had a worm at the opening of it. I squeezed it out, until the worm fell off and some white substances was oozing out. My cheek shrink to its normal size and my teacher then said I should relax I won’t die… But everyone in the dream looked disgusted with the worm.

  3. I dreamt that I had an abscess in my mouth… By the second it got bigger and bigger to the point that it was affecting my speech.. I wasn’t going to let it defeat me, so I squeezed it until it started to drain.. As I kept spiting the toxic fluid out pieces of my cheek were also coming out of my mouth.. It wouldn’t stop draining.. It was gross…

  4. Great thank you for the understanding of the dream, for I do have a lot of cluttered thoughts and have just made advances toward this when I had this dream. My dream was of a boil on someone else’s knee that was draining fluid. I who in my dream was emotionally linked with this person drained it and sucked the puss out so this person could be of support and not self pity. I was left picking my teeth to rid of the abscess as people watched in awe
