abscess

I know it may sound really strange but I am in so much pain from recurrent abscesses. The abscesses are usually on my leg or in my arm pit and under my breast. I had one in my rectum area too. I had been to the doctors so many times and put on dicloxicillin which seemed to help at the time, yet they still kept on recurring. i don't know what to do.......
My husband had his colon, rectum, & anus removed 4 weeks ago. He has an abscess in the rectum area. The Intervention Radiology department put in a drain and he is taking antibiotics. Do you think that an abscess can be conquered? This discussion is related to <a href='/posts/show/587000'>vitamins</a>.
Doctor performed surgery/ incision around her rectum area to drain the abscess immediately. However, about a month later, there is an abscess build up again around her viginal area. Went back to ER, Doctor performed surgery around her vignal area this time to drain the pus. She didn't has any fever both time. Two weeks after the 2nd sugery, she flet the paint and lump or swollen around her viginal area again (she is still taking her antibiotic at the time).
Antibiotics treat the infection that has caused the abscess. The specific antibiotic depends on what infectious organism has caused the abscess. Whether the abscess is drained or not, antibiotics are always used to treat the underlying infection. Needle aspiration of the abscess to remove the infectious fluid. This can be done on superficial abscesses that can be reached by a needle and syringe. For those abscesses inaccessible by a needle, surgical drainage is done.
Last September I had an abscess drained on my right lower buttock. I have HSV 2 in genital area. Ever since draining of abscess I've had issues with ulcer sore like holes in rectum area that come and go. I've been to 4 specialist. The first one had me put every crème, ointment, steroid and you name it on the area. I even tried more natural approaches with minimal ingredients like calendula, lavender, vitamin B etc.
The other day I noticed slight pain (like what you'd have from a bruise) about an inch or less from my rectum when I was in the shower. I attempted to examine, but I couldn't see anything and I could only feel that it is slightly swollen and is under the surface of the skin. I also (inadvertently)noticed a white, soft bump on the inside of my anus and there may be more than one, but I can't tell.
Could this be an anal abscess? It feels like a hidden pimple on one's face that would itch and then the pain would increase as the pressure increased. One online surgeon suggested it could be folliculitis. I applied neosporin, with no relief. Last night I applied the lidocaine 3% 0.5% hydrocortisone as indicated and also on that area. It is at 4 o'clock on the anal rim. How much longer should I wait until I make an appointment with a dermatologist?
I tried western, chineses, acupunture....EVERYthing and this pain goes on and on. Please help.
I am a 35 yr-old woman, otherwise healthy, who developed a peri-vulval (slightly to the left of the vaginal, directly between the vagina and the rectum) abscess in Sept. '07. After it was determined through an MRI that it was neither an anal nor a vaginal fistula, the abscess was incised and drained in early Oct. '07 and appeared to be healing, although continuing to drain. When it was still draining at the end of Nov.
almost like the burn you get when working a muscle out to the point of burn and then waiting 4 hours before stopping. I will not have the repair done on my vaginal wall; I watched a video on YouTube and it frightened me. How are you now? When you posted last you said there was a little improvement...what about now? Can you tell me what actually helps? It's been gradually getting worse in the last 5 years, its more unbearable all the time now. Thank you, and may you be recovering quickly.
At firsrt i assumed it was like a normal spot teenagers get on their face (eg, that which you pop, puss comes out, it heals and then goes away). So upon inspection, it looked like a red zpot (no yellow puss that i could see anyway - so i assumed it was too "premature" to pop without difficulty) but in the end i popped it, far more liquid came out then i expect (hearing 5+ drops hit floor which i later had to clean up) it then bled for 2 or 3 minutes, soon stopping.
Have to take Advil or Tylenol just to get thru the day. Have to sit on a doughnut pillow. Been on Antibiotics (Cefuroxime) for 3 full days now, and it does not seem to be working. I am a 38 year old male. Dr's are telling me there is nothing they can do, but I have to get help. Something is WRONG! Any Advice would be greatly appreciated!
Hi i have been playing with anal toys and i think i injured the insides of my rectum as i had pus and blood flowing out from the inside. on the outside it looks normal as quoted frm the GP. hence he didn't see the need to feel the inside. but i told him it was due to costipation as i'm shy with telling him abt the anal toy thing. i have been having night chills but no fever and getting on and off white patches in my mouth.

I have not yet seen my surgeon and do not want to because I am tiried and exhausted from constantlly having abscesses drained, is it possible that this abscess which is on the right side of my labia could be tracking from the rectal abscess that is on the left side of my rectum?? I have been using warm compresses on the area and just last night it started draining and has the same odor, color and consistency of the rectal abscess.
Any way after a few days its now Monday I seem to have a baring down feeling around the rectum area and it is very painful to sit on.. Hubby has continued to put Iodine on it after I washed it with a watered down Tea Trea solution. The little whole abscess like thing and the paper cuts do not seem to be healing. I have stopped putting so much Iodine on the cuts now and covering it with Vaseline Has any one else been expereincing this..
I had noticed about 4 years ago I had a small abscess on my vaginal wall, I never thought too much of it since I thought it was a big skin tag. Then I had a pap, and gave birth to my daughter, and no doctor ever made mention of it. Then today, while shaving down there, and I spread my lips open a bit, I noticed I had it on the other side of the wall as well. They are about just under a cm each, and are raised. At first I thought maybe it was Bartholins Gland abscesses, but they arent firm.
When signs do occur, they typically appear as one or more blisters on or around the genitals or rectum. The blisters break, leaving tender ulcers (sores) that may take two to four weeks to heal the first time they occur. The other possibilities apart from sebaceous cyst which I can think of are swollen lymph node and a HPV wart. A sebaceous cyst is a closed sac occurring just under the skin which contains a "pasty" or "cheesy" looking substance called keratin.
OMG I AM HAVING THIS ON MY NECK AND BEARD AREA ....
Hello, There can be many reasons for this anal swelling. It can be due to hemorrhoids, fissure, anorectal abscess, proctatitis, rectal prolapsed or Crohn’s disease or ulcerative colitis. Anal fissure and hemorrhoids are the most common causes of anal pain and swelling from the anus. Depending on their location, they can be internal(rectum) or external(near anus) hemorrhoids. Internal hemorrhoids are usually painless. Diagnosed by clinical examination, Per rectal examination and anoscopy.
When signs do occur, they typically appear as one or more blisters on or around the genitals or rectum. The blisters break, leaving tender ulcers (sores) that may take two to four weeks to heal the first time they occur. I suggest you to get it evaluated from a dermatologist.

Since yesterday I've had a large swollen bump on the labia majora..it's very painful, it hurts to walk or sit. I've been putting warm cloth on it and it seemed to help with the swelling but it's still really painful. I don't really want to go to the doctor because I just don't have the money right now, and I feel like it would be a waste if it's something that I can take care of on my own. Anyone else ever experienced this before? What can I do to ease the pain?
4 weeks ago I had what felt like an abscess in my rectum. After a few days I went to the toilet and passed out a bit of blood and what looked like an abscess. I went to the doctors the next day and he said that the bleeding looks like it's coming from further up and not near my rectum. After that I had a day of passing small amounts of blood and after that bowel movements were normal, no blood or diarhhea just a bit of mucus.
They are relatively common in the area of the rectum. The problem with abscess in that area is they can often result in an anal fistula, which is an opening from the rectal wall to the skin surface in the area. This happened to me some years ago, it was corrected with a simple surgical procedure. In any event you should see your GP and have it looked at, if it is an abscess, drainage may be needed to avoid issues, such as fistula, later on. cheers.
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....
Rectal discharge can occur for many reasons, including anal fissure, anal fistula (an abnormal connection between two organs) or abscess, other infections including sexually transmitted diseases, or chronic inflammatory diseases. An anal fissure is a small tear in the lining of the anal canal. An anal abscess is an infected, pus-filled cavity. An anal fistula, which is an abnormal connection between the anus and surrounding tissues, can develop from an anal abscess if the infection spreads.

My 15 yr old dog has had smelly anal glands for a few weeks but from what i have observed on previous occasions the problem usually clears itself. This time however a large weeping abscess has appeared leading the anal glands to burst. The vet put him on Antirobe antibiotics for the past 10 days but there has been little improvement. The vet now says he has an adenoma that when he felt inside the rectum felt quite knobbly. He suggested castration could cure the adenoma causing it to shrink.
Is cancer still a possibility even though the markers were negative? This wait seems very long. Would a tubal ovarian abscess or a hemorrhagic cyst be serious as well? I would not want these things to rupture. This is what the radiology report says: Within the pelvis, the uterus is noted to enhance quite prominently. In the left adnexa a low density structure approximately 3.3 by 1.4 cm in diameter is noted - this may be the left ovary.
