abscess

i have a bump thts as abscess in my upper part of gum i wll pop it but next day r 2 it wll come right back whats thats
After few days another relatively small abcess appeared on my left cheek (a large pimple), which was subsequently drained by myself applying antiseptic cream (which ws prescribed by my physician earlier). Now, another abcess has appeared on my chest (just close to my left breast nipple) and I am worried whether this will create any serious consequences. Can anyone advise me why this reoccur and whether it is simply a skin disease.
On Jan. 16 I woke up with this awful pimple/abscess on my chin. I left it alone all day, and it got worse. When I came home I cleaned it. (I've posted picture of the progression on my profile/album). Since then, I still have a lump on my face that won't go away. It hasn't changed in size at all and I don't know what to do about it. Any ideas on what may be going on and/or what I can do about it? I've tried pimple cream but it didn't work. Thanks!
last night i was lying in bed when i realized that an area closest to the scrotum was sore. i felt it and it was a lump, i thought maybe a pimple. of course all these thoughts rushed to my head thinking that i got a std or something. i dont think its any form of std because i have been with my boyfriend for 7 months now and i never had a problem. i am very worried though. the lump is just red and is not oozing and is not white or anything but at the same time, it is sore at times.
I cleaned it with hydrogen peroxide and salt water. It's a hole like a pimple. It's a lump too. Only blood was on the qtip, nothing yellow. I checked his teeth, they all look ok. I can't see under his tongue. He's been acting normally, eating hard and soft food, going to the bathroom, etc.
I'm afraid I'm about to have my first abscess rupture and I am terrified. My doctor told me to just call the office if it happens but what do I do in the meantime? It is so painful and red, it hurts with just the movement of walking. I've read some horrifying stories about abscesses and what happens when they rupture.
it could be a zit....it's rather rare to have a pimple in that area....but it's happened before. Also if you were on anti-biotics, sometimes that can mess with the ph levels and stuff in your vagina. I once had a friend who got a pimple in that area every time she recovered from a cold, was on antibiotics for something, etc.
About a week and a half ago I started to develope a lump, redness, and pain just outside the crease of my right thigh. Over the weekend it progressively got larger, developed a whitehead, and started draining pus/blood on its own (DO NOT try pushing, sqeezing or poking with a needle on your own).During this time it was VERY painful and hard to walk, sit or get comfortable. Once that finished, there was blood, lots of it, but this is normal (I of course did not know this and began to panic).
I had a pimple on the bridge of my nose and I kept trying to pop it and messing with it. It got very red and swollen after that. It's almost two weeks, I still have a fairly large bump on the bridge on my nose that doesn't seem to go away, and it is still kind of red and discolored. How long until the bump and redness go away? does it ever go away, well at least the bump? What can I do so it can go back to normal? help!
Hi I'm 20, and since I was 12 I noticed a pimple-ish thing over my front tooth and sometimes it would be bulgy and if i push on it the pus would come out. Sometimes it is full for several days and I push it and drain it and sometimes it's empty for months or even up to a year. And I didn't really know what it was and it never bothered me so I left it alone. My parents never really took me to the dentist very often and they never really mentioned it as a problem.
Hi, For the past 17 months i have been getting absess' all over my stomach upper thighs and bottocks. They occur one after the other starting as the tiniest little pimple, The surface stays the same but underneath the skin it becomes hard red and infected filing withpuss. I have been hospitilised 3 times to have them surgically drained. I get really sick really quickly sometimes within two days of the initial tiny lump coming up i have this golfball sized absess.
From everything I have read it seems that it is either a sebaceous cyst or something new that i have read an, abscess. The bump is now to a very small size roughly around the size of my thumb nail. it is darker than the rest of my skin and hurts a bit. It can move around in that area and I can fee my pulse on it. I ask you to what you think of this and to tell me because i would really like this removed.
Root canal failed and i developed an abscess on gum. Dentist at the time said best to leave it. Several years passed, new dentist decided to redo the root canal and perform an apiectomy. One day after stitches came out the familiar pimple was back. Since then i have lived with this infection, every so often i have to forcibly drain it to reduce the swelling and pain.
I have had a smallish (maybe 2 cm in diameter) skin abscess or infected cyst on my back next to my cervical spine for the last 2 weeks which doesn't seem to be getting bigger or coming to a head (I tried squeezing it thinking it was a pimple at first.) When I touch it, it feels soft/puffy as though there's some fluid under it (same as a gum boil) and it's no longer hot/painful, just itchy sometimes.
By my description she mentioned something about fissure and the implant could cause some small infection that come to the top in the form of a pimple on my gums but could also be an abscess from a near by tooth. She said that it will continue to drain because of the type of infection and the fact that it needs to "get out" someway. As depressing as it seems she did say that the implant may need to come out and we may have to start over.
Hi Welcome to the MedHelp forum! This 'lump' can be a boil or hair follicle infection, an abscess, an infected cyst or a tubercular cyst. It is difficult to diagnose on net. Generally a fine needle aspiration cytology is done to find the cause. Otherwise some doctors do a CT scan. At times clinical examination results in diagnosis. Treatment will depend on diagnosis can can vary from medication, incision and drainage to excision.
I have what seemed to start out as a pimple in the fatty tissue area of my right breast. It drained like a pimple would, but now seems to be black and blue..with tiny little black spots over the "pimple" area. It's primariy above the surface of the skin, but I can also feel a little "root"/ball underneath. The lump underneath is tiny and moveable. In fact, if I move it around, puss seems to secrete from the "pimple".
I have a couple questions about how I have been taking care of the abscess' though. The first 2 were not that bad. They were almost like a pimple I popped them and cleaned them out and all the swelling went down and pain went away. I took antibiotics to keep the infection from getting worse...I just got my 3rd one while waiting to go to the dentist. have my methods of cleaning the abscess' out after popping them the best approach.
Like a pimple with a whitehead on it? If some are and some aren't, are the ones with a white tip more sore? Itch any? How much? How long does it take from time of birth to get to a whitehead. Etc...
Anyways, It has been about 3 days and it seems like the abscess is constantly leaking pus down my throat. My throat is sore and raw, I constantly taste the foul pus, especially when i talk or put any type of pressure on the area. I can't take it being that i am a germ freak. I have tried to pop it but it just slowly comes out (no blood) and It seems like its a small, hard, white ball that kind of moves around under the gum. I don't know what to do??? Please help?
Hello, From your symptoms,it looks like a Bartholin's abscess or cyst. There are glands in the vaginal lips called Bartholin’s glands. These can become painful and swollen, and an abscess can form. This often causes blockage in the main duct from the gland, and a cyst develops. This is felt as a painless, hard swelling.In such cases, antibiotics may be helpful, or surgical treatment might be required.
If a localized area of the breast is involved, an acute abscess of the breast should be ruled-out. Popping or pricking the pimple-like lesion will produce breaks in the skin and secondary infection may result, producing more harm than good. It would be best to consult your doctor for proper evaluation and management.
If the pimple is abscess, identification of the infection source is required.
I just discovered today that I have a pimple (at least I think it is) on the outside of my Labia Major. It isn't inside the vagina, so it isn't hurting or anything...it just hurts a little when the toilet paper touches it when wiping after urinating. Is there anything I can do to get rid of this pimple myself...or do I need to go to the Doctor?
Hello, From the symptoms it sounds like boils or abscess. Boils are caused by infection of the hair follicle by staph aureus. . Hair follicles that are blocked by greasy creams, petroleum jelly, or similar products are more vulnerable to infection. Keep the area clean and apply warm compresses and some topical antiseptics. Also wear loose-fitting cotton clothing and use an antibacterial soap or mild soap like dove. Avoid any kind of cosmetics.
Hi I have a small light brownish pimple or skin tag looking thing near my anus. I've looked at pictures of hemorrhoids and it isn't anywhere near that big, it is very very small and it doesn't hurt. But whenever I wipe after using the bathroom it always lightly bleeds and then burns for a few minutes afterwards. I don't know what it is. It Also doesn't itch. I attached a photo http://i1291.photobucket.com/albums/b547/silver12345654321/photo_zps1ee1865d.
I have never been with anyone other than my husband and the same goes for him, so I know I dont have an std. BUT I do have a rather large looking pimple in my genital area (on the skin, not the labia) It is about 1/4 an inch in width and about 1/4 of an inch high. It looks like its filled with some sort of puss. I noticed it yetserday so it has not been there for very long. What should I do?
It could be something like a periodontal abscess which you cant always see on an xray, and it could just be in the soft tissue and not show as a radiolucent area on the xray.
Eventually, the center of the abscess softens and becomes filled with pus.Ingrown hair are the commonest causes of boils. Apply hot compresses on the boil.As long as the boil is hard,it is difficult draining it.But once it becomes soft,drainage is easy.You need to consult a doctor for its drainage or for prescription of antibiotics. Hope it helps.Take care and pls do keep me posted on how you are doing or if you have any additional queries.
