Abscess on finger tip

Common Questions and Answers about Abscess on finger tip

abscess

I was working with a Dremel tool making jewelry. I laid down for a while because the tip of my finger hurt so bad. Like a fool I put ice on it. Then went to bed with a hot pack. As I laid there I could feel the infection draw through my finger into my hands and down my arm. I turned on the light. Look and saw the red line and knew I was in deep S..t. After a very long night in the ER, I was moved to the heart hosp because I was now in heart issues.
Hi, making it short and quick. My finger tip is swollen, red, tender, and a bit discolored. Could it be a ingrown nail or a infection? If so can it be treated at home? If so what should I do? Thank you in advance.
It actually seemed like it was gone for about 10 days then all of a sudden it was back. It has stayed mainly at the tip of my middle finger but has gone as far as the first joint. It is starting to really freak me out so if anyone has had anything like this and has a solution, I would be appreciative.
A felon is a fingertip abscess deep in the palm side of the finger. It usually is caused by bacterial infection, but a herpes virus called herpetic whitlow and, more rarely, fungi also can cause felons. In herpetic whitlow, small bubble-like cysts on the skin, called vesicles, and repeated episodes are there which distinguish it from bacterial or fungal infection. It is less likely to be the cause in your sister’s case. Hence it can either be bacterial or fungal infection.
its sore to touch i can't put pressure on that part of my finger, i have also noticed little red dots around my hand and up that middle finger. it almost looks like a blister, the skin is stretched and shinny, but i literally have no idea what it could be. the whole tip of my finger is very stiff and hurts to bend, but this has all come on very randomly, any advise would help!
Ok so about 3/4 weeks ago I was chewing food and felt a pain on my tooth/gum area and noticed a white patch/blotch. It was only that time that hurt because the food was rubbing right on the area. After that I forgot about it and went on about my business. Today I remembered and looked in my mouth and saw the same white patch/blotch still there. It doesn't hurt only when I slipped and scraped it with my finger nail. It is soft, and almost pliable like you can move it side to side.
Or does it feel like cartiledege - like the tip of your nose? I have a lipoma on my skull that has been there 48 years. Feels like cartiledge. It's totally harmless. Best wishes.
I have got these especially bad on my right index finger, and it seems to be seasonal. Tiny, painless, water/oil filled bumps that rupture easily and are itchy. Really really annoying and not much to look at either. I had it break out particularly bad last summer, and I ended up obsessing over it and picking it apart. not the best idea as it all ruptured and simply would not stop leaking water.
I had skin-to-skin genital contact (no sex, but everything but that -- including him giving me oral) with a guy on Aug. 13th. On Aug. 22nd, I first started feeling extremely itchy on my vaginal lips and around the entrance to my anus. This itchiness increased to the point that it was unbearable. During that time, I tried taking yeast infection meds, but that didn't work. On Aug. 29th, I noticed 2 large bumps under the skin near my anus.
What would the hard, painful, pea size, lump within my middle finger at the tip be caused by ? I did not bump it or injure it in any sort of way. I noticed it about 3 months ago and it has gotten more sensitive to touch and a little increase in size since then. There is no thickening of the skin,no discoloration nor any openings on it or near it. I do have a history of NHLymphoma and have been in remission for 14 years.
and have seen many different locations for an abscess on the body and i have to say that the groin area is the most painful and most re-occuring location. I have assisted both Dr.s and P.A.s in lancing(making a small cut into the head of the abscess to release the pus) these painful abscesses. Here's the thing....if you've gotten one before----you're more prone to getting them again....
I had skin-to-skin genital contact and had oral sex performed on me (but no vaginal intercourse) with a guy exactly 4 weeks ago (on Aug. 13th). 9 days later (Aug. 22nd), I first started feeling extremely itchy on my vaginal lips and around the entrance to my anus. This itchiness increased to the point that it was unbearable. During that time, I tried taking yeast infection meds, but that didn't work. 7 days after that (Aug. 29th), I noticed 2 large bumps under the skin near my anus.
but stupidly had unprotected drunk sex with a few times, which thankfully she didnt notice but now about a month later, she shows NO signs. but yeah neosporin or cortozone help on the feet and legs but not the tip of my penis. (which is getting worse) highly doubt its bed bugs for any of you because i'm on vacation (new bed) and its not getting any better. reaaaaaally would like this to go away.
While washing my face a few days ago, I felt a hard lump under my skin near (under) my right nostril. It is not painful at all, is immobile and is about the size of the tip of my pinky finger. I had my GP look at it, and she said if it were an abscess, it would be painful. She thought it may be a calcium deposit, and to be on the safe side, she had me have x-rays done of my sinuses, with the reason being due to a suspicious palpable mass.
my problem is that for the last year (perhaps a little bit less), i've had one (and recently another) bump on my left butt cheek. i notice I often lean more heavily on this side when i'm sitting in my computer chair (which has little padding) and i have to sit at my (or a) computer chair frequently because of studying and work.
Over the past few days I've noticed a hard lump on the back of my right ear where it joins to the skull it hurts when it's got pressure on it as well as being a reasonably big size maybe the size of the tip surface of your finger? I'm not sure what I should do?! Any ideas...

The tooth was beginning to feel uncomfortable and every time it was touched, even lightly with the tip of my finger, I was experiencing a terrible feeling......the only thing I can liken it to is running your fingernails down a blackboard! I was also having short sharp nerve pains radiate in the tooth, which my dentist couldn't understand, as he was sure he had destroyed the nerve completely. He wasn't happy putting a permanent filling on it so he referred me to an endodontist.
Trying to not kill anyone, i seem to have lost my calm tollerant self, it feels like i'm bulding up for an all out screaming match, but I cant really put my finger on why, just this irritation when i've had to repeat my self again, oh and again, oh and again!
I'm feeling around my butt cheek, ever-so-lightly running the tip of my index finger over the infectuous war zone that is the beginning of the crack of my ass. Things feel pretty hectic back there. There's no bleeding, no pussing, the face of the pimple is glazed over with a thin skin. I'm pretty sure this needs to be an "open wound" for the salve to do anything - at least that's what makes the most sense - so I know what I have to do. I eyeball the safety pin on the bureau.
00, so there’s no income, and if, on the outside chance, a patient falls in the shower, they can sue me. What doctor’s gonna recommend this?” He’s right, doctors aren’t stupid—that’s why they’re doctors.” If you don't wish to take the risk involved, then at least you may wish to try the Dr.Grossan Hydropulse Nasal Irrigation System.
I occasionally have numness/tingling on my tongue's tip. I developed what appeared to be three cold sores from the edge of my lip up to my left nostril. They never crusted over and is now a red looking discoloration. I have had it for four weeks. When looking at the head of me penis when flacid it has dark spots/nodules just under the skin on the underside of the glans, and when erect the glans has deep fissures in the skin and is still numb especially after sitting.
If you have chipped teeth or sharp edges on your teeth, get your dentist to smooth of fill. On my last surgery one of the stitches developed an abscess, extremely painfull, could hardly swallow for days. I am still waiting for the results on whether its cancerous or not. Dentists are meant to check your mouth for Leukoplakia, I am not sure they do. Be aware. If you can stop yourself sucking on your teeth, do it.
I had an episode about six weeks ago where my left forearm felt weak and my left thumb and index finger were paralysed. I could not bend them, I could not touch the tip of my thumb to the other fingers on my left hand. I slowly regained use of thumb and forefinger over about two weeks, only some partial tingling in arm and hand remains, on and off. A CT scan revealed a 1.5 cm ring-enhancing right posterior frontal lesion with oedema.
I am relieved to know that I am not alone (though I wouldn't wish this nightmare on anyone). I went to the ER about a year ago for a really painful abscess that appeared out of the blue. A Physicians Assistant diagnosed me with an "ingrown hair that might have gotten staph" after she poked the wound with her (bare & unsanitized) finger. I was sent on my way with a prescription for antibiotics. I returned within a week because it grew about 5 x in size.

Dear Dr. I posted a question recently on this forum where you said i was low risk for HIV but I believe you may have misread. I had a condom break during vaginal sex with an unknown woman. Since then i have tested negative for everything except herpes and HIV My symptoms are as follows Confirmed (by a MD) swollen lymph nodes in the neck and groin Approx 3 weeks after the event i had a sinus infection that took a while to clear even on antibiotics About 3 days ago I went to the Dr.
To apply it I put four or five drops on the end of a q-tip and saturate the infected area, once in the morning and once at night. It's smelly, but it works for me.
not spray deodrant, but a little bit of roll on deodrant, like dove. i put a tiny bit on my finger and rub aroung the edge of my belly button, making sure i dnt go all the way in because that can cause problems. i hope my advice helps, because since ive been doing this my belly button doesnt discharge and doesnt smell!!! even if my boyfreind tries to chew it off!!
Over a couple days of a couple 1/2 hour soaks a day, the Epsom salts drew it out closer to the tip of my finger, 1/2 inch from where it went in. I could tell it moved a whole lot faster after I started the soaks. So while Grandma isn't a scientfic answer, her lifelong experience is that Epsom salts can draw some toxins out through the skin.
