Whoa!!!!: Until proven otherwise, this is an infection. Like most infections your body is able to manage them with time. Your body will make anti-bodies to the infection, cause an inflammatory reaction to help cure the infection and with time get better. This is normal. If you feel like the normal course of events are not happening, talk to your doctor.
