Abscess lanced

Common Questions and Answers about Abscess lanced


Avatar_n_tn My lower left rear abscess appeared overnight, even my dentist said it was "a good size abscess" so yesterday I had it lanced and drained. I was put on Erithromycin 250mg and per my Dr.'s instruction, took four immediately then one every 6 hours and will finish them by the time of my root canal appointment in 6 more days. He also prescribed Hydro/apap 7.5-50 for pain. They seem to work ok, but I hate how they make me feel.
Avatar_f_tn Hi, The abscess in your breast should be lanced and drained.But if your infection keeps coming back after incision and drainage, a wide excision of the infected area may help. Has your doctor made a culture of the infecting organism? If not,then it should be done so that a proper antibiotic treatment can be focused on the offending organism. It is also possible that your infection keeps coming back because you have some other illness which could affect your immune system, such as diabetes.
Avatar_f_tn If the infection does not clear up after you have completed the antibiotics,the abscess should be lanced and drained.But if it doesn't clear up after this procedure,a wide excision of the infected area may help. I would also advise you to consult a Breast Specialist who might recommend a few tests,including a Mammogram/Ultrasound to further investigate this problem. Best wishes..
6388161_tn?1380850057 Yesterday i went back to the emergency room and the abscess was lanced but nothing came again but blood. It is so hard and large the doctor said it was urated i dont know the exact word but it needs to be surgically removed. So has anyone had abscess in the below the vagina are surgically removed? If so did you have to stay overnight in the hospital? Was their a lot of pain afterward?
Avatar_n_tn I immediately went to the doctor where I was sent to the hospital and the abscess was lanced and drained. I was seen in the emergency room the following night where it was once again lanced. This was left open to drain for approx. 6 weeks. I also might add that this was the most painful experience I have ever had.
Avatar_m_tn I have a groin abscess that was lanced 2 months ago. Have been on two rounds of antibiotics and still hasn't healed w/air exposure. Any suggestions?
Avatar_n_tn ) After feeling the scalple slicing open my abscess, then the doctor found a previous abscess under that one and had to slice it open as well. After all of this, it was time to begin packing the wound with this stringgy gauze filled with antibiotic by using a small pair of sissors to do it. I felt everything! It felt like he was poking the abscess with the sharp sissor and then dragging it around the inside edges of the wound. Another very painful and tramatic experience!
Avatar_n_tn I have had these before. There are 2 main causes. #1 Ingrown hair. for this i suggest you go see a skin doc he can write you a script for medicine to bring the hair to the surface or you could go to the regular doc and have him lance it open (OUCH!). #2 Abcess usually caused by an irritated fat cell.
Avatar_n_tn 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.
Avatar_f_tn I am a 24 yr old female and recently had a tooth abscess that I took care of with 2 different antibiotics (Clyndmiacin and cephelexin). I went to the ER and got the abscess lanced to relieve some of the pressure. I went to my dentist and received a partial root canal. I am feeling no pain in my mouth and the swelling is all gone. Now I'm not sure if the infection is in my heart.
Avatar_f_tn Hi, I have what I am 99% sure is a Bartholin Cyst or abscess since it is painful, tender & swollen. I am a medical technician who spent 2 years treating regular abscess' so I kind of know what I am in for but have never dealt with the bartholin gland type. I am worried because I know that it is very difficult to anesthetize and abscess locally. I am hoping I am not too late for antibiotic/ sitz bath therapy.
Avatar_m_tn I can't walk, or function, it hurts to sit or do anything basically. Do I maybe have a Bartholin duct abscess and thrush as well? I've tried several things that don't seem to be working too well, i started with monostat 1 the 1 day plunger and the miconazole 2% cream that comes with it, then i tried vagisil anti itch topical cream, followed by plain yogurt dipped 100% cotton tampons. i'm so sick of this and i just want to feel normal again.
Avatar_f_tn My 16 year old son had a rectal abscess that lanced itself last week. What natural post care do you recommend he be doing to make sure this heals without complications?
Avatar_n_tn Over a month ago, an abscess formed on the back of my thigh (midway between bottom of buttock and top of knee). I was on vacation and delayed medical care. Finally it became huge and I went to ER where it was lanced and packed and I was given Bactrim and Cipro for 5 days. I used compresses on it. The culture came back (days later) as strep. After another 10 days, it reddened again and seemed a bit bumpy. I was put on 10 days of Clindmycin. Just completed that course.
Avatar_n_tn First off you need to find a new dentist, I had that happen to me because of an abcess where I looked like I had a baseball in my cheek, I had to go see a specialist to move what was left of the molar and have it lanced, where he had to cut the inside of my mouth open and have all the puss sucked out. It was a horrible infection. My face just kept getting bigger and bigger. That was several years ago.
1219288_tn?1266694789 meaning that it was not completely lanced the first time. DO YOU THINK THAT I SHOULD HAVE CONTINUED TO SEE A PCP??? LOL.. JUST wondering!!! just do not think that would have helped considering that the PAIN WAS BEYOND INTENSE!!!
Avatar_n_tn i had a bartholin abscess it was lanced and drained and continued draining for about half a day. ive been taking antibiotics there is still a small lump that does not hurt or cause any discomfort, is this from tissue build up from the swelling.
Avatar_m_tn The pain became unbearable so I went to the ER. They lanced it and told me I had an abscess. They just put gauze over it and sent me away with antibiotics. Well it's been a week now and I'm worried how long before it heals? It is still draining I went to the doc yesterday and they gave me an antibiotics shot and did a culture. How long will I have to deal with this? Its the size of a quarter but its giving me a lot of trouble. I'm not sure if this is the appropriate forum.
Avatar_n_tn and she lanced it once in a different area that needed drained. When the hole (that never closes) starts to try and close it fills up with puss and gets very painful. Other than that it stays open and drains periodically and is a real nuisance. I'm afraid to wear deodorant or powder. Has anyone ever experienced this?? I would appreciate any information or direction that would work for you.
Avatar_n_tn I'll try not to post TMI... About three weeks ago I had a large abscess lanced. Everything seems to be healed for the most part, but the skin around and where the abscess/incision was made is very dark, purplish black at this point, and I don't know if I should be concerned about it or not. Also, I have a small red bump that has developed almost directly beside where the original abscess was.
Avatar_n_tn my antibiotics finished yesterday and since i have been in extreme pain, the tooth itself its very tender to touch and a hard lump had formed on my hard palet again, when pressed on some pus still comes out as the dentist left a hole in the abscess where he lanced so it could self drain. will i need another dose of antibiotics? what can i do in the mean time to keep the pain down? i also am experiencing pain in my cheek bone on the same side, is this connected? thanks....
Avatar_m_tn (Blister means a swelling with clear fluid. An abscess is deeper and has pus.) An abscess in this location could be due to an STD like gonorrhea, but more likely isn't an STD -- something like staph, strep, etc. And the urine blockate sounds like you may have passed a stone, even if one couldn't be found at the time -- and that could also contribute to an abscess.
Avatar_m_tn I was treated for an abscess on my breast, about a month ago. After the abscess was lanced I noticed a red streak going across my breast. After taking antibiotics the streak receded, but left a large red area on my breast. I have had sharp shooting pain in my nipple, and an overall sensitive breast. Could this be the remnants of the initial infection, or should I be concerned about a larger issue?
Avatar_n_tn My dog has what seems to be an abscess on his neck. It's underneath on the side. I only noticed when petting him. It doesn't seem to hurt him, he still has his appetite, and is as playful as ever. Do you think this is something I can treat by cleaning with a warm compress and peroxide?
Avatar_f_tn You can try applying warm compresses for about 10 mins a few times a day. If it is an abscess, it would probably have to be lanced and drained. If you aren't sure, best to consult your Vet or at least call, tell them what is going on and see what they advise.
Avatar_f_tn I have been struggling w a bartholin abscess that is reoccurring And I have had it lanced a number of times painfully! How do I have it removed? What kind of doctor do I need To see? I have a bartholin abscess again now and I am Feeding going to the doctor. My doctor says there's Nothing they can do but lance it. But there's got to b a better way!

Avatar_f_tn I was diagnosed 4 years ago with an anorectal abscess. It had to be lanced, drained and packed everyday for 2 months. It healed properly. Just recently, in march 2010 I had another occurrence. This time it was not caught in time. I became septic and it ended up bursting. I had to have surgery, a tube inserted for 4 days to allow for any additional draining. The tube was removed and the part that burst healed with in a month.
Avatar_f_tn Now out of antibiotics and her paw has swelled up again. I think it needs lanced but Vet not opened till tomorrow morn. I dont know if she can wait? Emergancy Vet will cost alot!! What should I do.
