Dear Guys, I developed abscess three times with in two weeks interval in my groin area.....the last two were big and required surgery with full ansthesia. My doc therefore suggested to escape the shot at least for one week so i did not take the shot last week. I continued to take it again but I developed another abscess on the preannal position. I am afraid it will force me to discontinue the therapy. Has any one exprienced such problem during therapy?

It went away in a few days. She said its an abscess. I got another one now and its really small comapared to the one I had before but its on the right side this time she prescribed me dicloxacillin again and said it should go away soon. This time it didn't need to be popped because its really small and donts hurt at all like the first one. Hope this helps but I do suggest to anyone to not rely on a fourm / website for info to go to a doctor or emergency room to get it taken care of.
For 2 weeks I have been dealing with a very painful abscess on my ear, where after alot of research and several trips to a local medical clinic and ER, I have found that what I have is an abscess in the Preauricular pit/sinus. I have been given 3 rounds of antibiotics, one of which I am still taking (Clindamyacin). I have yet to see any improvement from taking the antibiotics, so I went to the ER yesterday where they attempted to do and Incision and Drainage procedure.

I am a BIG guy 350lbs. I have on my upper leg in the crease between groin and leg a lesion that is very sore and bleeds constantly. The area stays moist most of the time. The lesion is swollen and hard and has an round opening where it bleeds. The soreness has expanded to my pubic hair area. Any ideas what it could be?
I have recurring groin abcesses, usually in my panty line. Should I see a dermatologist or a gynecologist for this issue?
I was travelling for a month and was having problem in my groin area. My scortum was too sweaty and itchy all the time. Further, on itching , powder like flakes will fall from my scortum and later whole scortum will burn for hours. Cleaning it with cold water and putting some oil would help for few hours only. I couldn't do cleaning every two hours because I was travelling. Coming back home , I read online about ii and symptoms look similar to eczema.
I will tell you that it's very painfull and I personally have a slight tremor in my right leg. (the abscess was on the right side of my groin). I went to my local emergency room yesterday because it was bleeding and leaking nasty puss. After waiting 8 hours I finally got in and got it drained. Every 48 hours I have to go and get the mesh gauze that they put inside the abscess hole changed. The mesh is what helps close the hole once the abscess is drained...
Some possibilities for this growth include swollen lymph nodes, infection, or abscess. Are there any growths on your penis or scrotum? The main concern is cancer, but only by seeing a urologist and having a biopsy of the growth can help determine this.
Hi Welcome to the MedHelp forum! If abdominal causes like stone in the kidney, kidney infection, abscess in psoas muscle, adrenal gland tumor etc have been ruled out, then a MRI of the lumbo-sacral spine should be done to see if there is a pinched nerve. Persisting pain can also be due to herpes zoster which can appear without a rash too. Hence discuss these possibilities with your doctor. Hope this helps. Please let me know if there is any thing else and do keep me posted. Take care!
Hi my partner had a football accident where he ended up taking a blow to the groin area a few weeks back. This resulted in a massive bruise appearing and only just starting to fade. Since doing this he seems to have gained two small lumps in his groin and has been complaining it now hurts the back of his leg to sit down. Do you have any idea ad to what this could be?
Hello So i am 22 years old male and i noticed that i have 1 little lump at the right and left side of my groin(where the leg joins with the pubic area) and i also noticed that my left lump is a little larger that then right one.It's painless and i am fairly healthy .I have checked at the web and i freaked out because a lot of pp say that painless swollen lymph are dangerous! i cant even sleep now! P.
About a year ago a hard red lump developed in my groin just to the side of the crease where inner thigh turns into genital. It wasn't painful if I recall (if anything it was never very bothersome, which is why I let it go so long) but over the course of the year I've developed another on the other side of my groin, in almost the same place; the two have also gotten larger and more sensitive.
husband has a egg size lump in groin where leg meets trunk, no pain, all labs came back normal. Dr wanting him to MRI. what could this be?
This has been going on for about a 2 years. Sometimes it happens every few weeks, sometimes a month, or sometimes I'll get 2 within a few days of each other. I can always tell when there is going to be a breakout, because it will feel like my pubic hair is sore, probably near the base of it. The breakouts always consist of a small cluster of about 6 different sized white pimple like blisters, with red irritated areas around them. The breakout site usually is about a half inch in diameter.
TWO ENTIRELY DIFFERENT THINGS... abscess: An abscess is a localized collection of pus that generally develops in response to infection. An abscess is typically painful, and it appears as a swollen area that is warm to the touch. The skin surrounding an abscess typically appears pink or red. Abscesses can develop in many parts of the body, but they usually involve the skin surface.
can a abscess tooth make abscess in other parts of the body..such as the armpits and groin....
The hair follicles swell and eventually harden and the skin around the hair peels back leaving an abscess which heals in about a week or so. The swelling reduces dramatically but for the affected follicles, which remain raised and swollen. They are not painful, and produce no visible discharge, blood or pus. Occasionally I'll see what look like tiny whiteheads, but vanish after a few hours leaving flaking skin.
It does look like a scar of some sort. Do you remember ever having any cyst, boil or abscess in that area or an accident where you may have got a cut? May be one of your parents may have some answers and know it is. Best wishes.
The problem that i have is that i have a groin lymp node swollen on my left side that hurts slightly when i press on it, and i am just woundering could it be from my planter wart that is also located on my left foot?
Hi Thanks for writing to the forum! If the pain is still persisting, it could be due to kidney stones or groin infection. Crohn’s disease, diverticulitis, infection in kidney, kidney stones, constipation, and an abscess in rectus abdominis muscle or psoas muscle can all cause lower left abdomen pain. Orchitis, prostatitis etc should all be explored as a cause of pain. Hope this helps. Do let me know if there is any thing else and keep me posted. Take care!
About two days ago, I found a large lump on my outer vagina/groin area, near the bikini line. It is about an inch. It is swollen, tender, and red. I don't feel any hard bumps inside, it's just a large lump. It is painful just to walk or sit down. I don't think it is an ingrown hair because I've had those before, and it looks nothing like this. Also, when I had an ingrown hair, it was not this painful as the lump I have right now. Can anyone please help me? It would be much appreciated.
Hi everyone, for 5 years I've been haunted by this abscess in my groin/labia. It comes and goes, sometimes it's gigantic (REALLY) and sometimes just a painful, red, inflamed, deep seated "nodule" (so it doesn't disfigure me completely, but still makes it awfully painful to walk). I had the abscess drained at the hospital once (never again, the anestesia hurt like hell and did not numb the area at all... urgh!) and the material (the pus) was sent for culture....
just the other day I was using the restroom when I noticed a small lump near my in thigh by my groin. felt a little hard, and i thought it was a zit. but I could not pop it. I have gotten something similar under my armpit, and I left it alone and it went away.
