Burst abscess in mouth

Common Questions and Answers about Burst abscess in mouth


Avatar f tn Over the past couple days I developed an extremely painful abscess. In an attempt to clean my mouth using coconut oil the abscess burst. I believe I didn't swallow any of the liquid leaking out and throughly rinsed my mouth with salt water and then some hydrogen peroxide. I will be receiving insurance in about 2 weeks from my new job so I am hoping I can hold off going to the dentist till then.
Avatar n tn Today I went to the dentist and they were going to put me in an emergency appointment at 4pm but as I was sitting there waiting for the person I came with to get done with their appointment my abscess burst in my mouth! It started gushing out blood/pus so right there the dentist took me back and suctioned it out and hand to numb me several times. It hurt a lot but luckily I'm numb now. They want to put me on another antibiotic (Keeflex?) but I don't have the money for it.
Avatar f tn is this normal that the pain and now the swelling has started. does the abscess have to burst or clear before it gets better. my dentist says he cant check the root canal work done previously until the infection clears., i am so worried about loosing my tooth. when will the anti botics start to work. i look forward to hearing from you, many thanks.
1657910 tn?1302375661 Eventually after I had been through all of those antibiotics I had several types of yeast infections - not just vaginal - I had them in my armpits and my mouth as well, in addition to just feeling very sick in general. The probiotics helped some with this. It is also pretty normal that your biopsy site reopened...all of my abscesses started with my first biopsy site. My doctor was not familiar with this at all either....it's pretty normal for us here, though.
Avatar n tn Hi, Can you please mention where exactly the pus has got collected, is it the upper jaw or the lower jaw? what are the medicines prescribed by the dentist? I would suggest to start on povidone iodine mouth gargles so the bad taste of the pus will reduce and also it reduces the bacterial load in the throat. Any more doubts you are welcome.
Avatar f tn As Margot said, it may be a cyst or abscess. I don't know where you live, or what diseases are present in your area, but if it is a cyst or abscess, then it isn't contagious. But do be careful to wash your hands with hot water and soap after handling it ir bathing the wound, etc, as sometimes infections like this can cause stomach upsets, if the bacteria are transferred to your mouth or food etc. At one month, he is really young and tough in his little way...yet also very vulnerable.
Avatar f tn My dentist took an x-ray of my mouth and found no sign of a tooth abscess, even though when she drilled the infected tooth (which had a filling), there was a foul smell, indicating an abscessed tooth. There is also a swelling below my left jaw, and it is difficult to swallow and open my mouth. The dentist didn't explain much regarding why the x-Ray didn't reflect the tooth abscess. When we asked about the swelling in my jaw, she answered (rather uncertainly) maybe, it was because of trauma?
Avatar n tn As long as it continues to drain from the pimple though, it most likely won't spread as it'll just drain out and not push out to other places but I wouldn't like to have that in my mouth constantly. Best to see a dentist and get it fixed asap.
Avatar n tn i again went to the docs and was put on antibiotics and luckily it didnt get as bad and burst within 2 days (previously had it for 14 days in total). I was told to squeeze it for about 20 mins each day to make sure it didnt fill back up and give the antibiotics a chance to work. I'm still waiting for it to completely go but it there's no more puss coming out and it seems to be healing well. My advice to anyone with a lump in that area is to go to the docs straight away.
Avatar f tn I don't have an abscess and I haven't had my lump burst. I just want to use it to reduce and hopefully make the lump go away instead of being put on steroids. So I'm just curious if it's going to help me any by putting the oil on my skin when the lump is internal. Thanks!

Avatar n tn Following the first one, about 2 weeks after getting it, she broke out in blisters in mouth, around mouth, hands and feet. A swab showed the hand foot and mouth virus. However she developed a hard pea sized reaction at the site of the injection within a few days of receiving the first vaccine. It was very itchy but that was it and it didn't go. About 10mths after vaccine this pea was still there and a mass developed under it about 3.5inches X 2 inches. It became sore.
Avatar m tn My question is about severe mastitis but not in a human, it's in my dog. My question should apply to any mammal though. the back two mammary glands are severely infected. I wanted to know if removal of the infected tissue increases the patients chance for survival. She has been on IV and antibiotics for the last 3 days. Her skin is now split and open. does this mean she is going down hill or a normal recoverable part of the disease process.
619150 tn?1247051874 how much damage can I have from having this infection for so long? I have had both knees replaced, a cataract surgery in one eye and scheduled for cataract surgery for the other eye next week. I am also looking at a hip replacement in the near future. I am concerned about one of my knees as the doc said the infection could settle there and I have been experiencing pain. I am also concerned if I should have the cataract surgery as I did experience a lot of swelling with the last surgery.

Avatar f tn while on the amoxicillin, I get a abscess/boil/something on my behind in a very uncomfortable spot!!...I've never had one before in my life. It was pretty bad, but burst yesterday and started draining on its own.) At that point, I thought all would be okay, at least until I was done with the antibiotic treatment and went and saw my dentist again. Next, late last night I started to get a 'weird' feeling on the left side of my face.
Avatar m tn I had bruised blood in my gum so i used a sewing pin from the drawer to burst it , i didnt clean the pin but it looked clean and new Im 60% sure i cant get hiv this way (nobody in my family has hiv) can someone confirm but is there anything else i could get a infection from it my gum feels fine and the ball of bruised blood is now gone
2216535 tn?1339412493 If left untreated, abscesses will often keep growing in size (seromas tend to stay a constant size) and eventually burst out through the suture-line or a hole elsewhere in the belly skin, resulting in wound breakdown. Abscesses generally occur because bacteria have managed to gain access to the fatty layers beneath the skin suture line either during surgery or soon after surgery.
Avatar m tn I'm just saying...) A little more background and not sure if it is related, I had an abscess in my lower jaw on the left side and came close to dying back in 2010. I had emergency surgery that drained the abscess. Ever since, I have experienced phantom sensations like having cotton stuck in my mouth between my cheek and gum on that side. A dentist explained to me that it was, most likely, from nerve damage from the infection or the surgery.
Avatar m tn Abscesses are usually not viral,but sometimes people may think a sore in the mouth is an abscess when it is really a cold sore which is a virus. Just to clear things up.
279234 tn?1363108849 I hate the taste of latex in your mouth. I hate the feeling of the scrapping with those hooks. I hate everything about the whole experience. Besides, my mouth tends to spasm and lock, when messed with too much. I guess you could say it's been awhile since I've been to the dentist, and I do need to go. My excuse in the past was that we didn't have dental insurance and could not afford it,but now we do.
1752640 tn?1352770994 They have not done any tests to find out if its staph, they told me don't shave that will get rid of it (didn't work), don't use soap (hello not working), and no one else in my home shows any signs of having it so clearly its not contagious. I don't know what to do any more its like every time i lift my arms people see it, it hurts and its leaving bright red scars. ANY SUGGESTIONS???
Avatar n tn Also, in addition to your fiber intake, consume probiotics for a while, they're in Acidophilus milk (Nutrish is one brand in the grocery) or Activia yogurt. Also, eat dark green salads and whole wheat or whole oat products, along with whatever else you're eating. If you are on a medication that has as its side effect dry mouth or digestive upset, ask the prescribign doc to switch to another kind.
Avatar f tn I believe that an abscess occurs only in some serious intestinal disease, like in inflammatory bowel disease - IBD (Crohn's disease or ulcerative colitis), or in heavy infection. If abscess has gone, this doesn't mean that inflammation in the colon has gone. Abscess is only a complication of an inflammation and it usually resolves by itself, if you treat it or not. So, my suspiction is, that there may be either IBD, or recurrent infection which is often in diverticulosis.
196896 tn?1189759421 Yes. Chromium catgut ones are used sometimes and Vicryl, Vicryl Plus is treated with Triclosan I believe. I had horrors after oral surgery years back. They spit out AND swelled so much one burst and left a dent inside that's still there. The Vicryl suture is well tolerated by most people and I guess reduces post op infections overall, but is not well-tolerated by absolutely everyone.
Avatar f tn while on the amoxicillin, I get a abscess/boil/something on my butt (in the crack- ouch!)..I've never had one before in my life. It was pretty bad, but burst yesterday and started draining on its own.) At that point, I thought all would be okay, at least until I was done with the antibiotic treatment. Next, late last night I started to get a 'weird' feeling on the left side of my face. Hard to describe, like weakness or something, but I figured I just irritated something.
Avatar f tn The biggest problem yesterday in the consultation was a stricture in my small intestine, diagnosed through a recent endoscopy. He has ordered an MRI - quite unheard of in my 37 yrs of Crohn's. I normally have colonoscopies and endoscopies but he said an MRI is without ironising radiation and is the best way to go now. Lost me there. He is now talking of surgery to resect that part that is narrowed. I was in shock and didn't even think about asking if it means an ileostomy and a bag.
Avatar n tn ive been to dr and am on antibiotics and painkillers. it has burst after 4 days of soaking in savlon baths. today ive found and burst 2 more that came up on the join of my leg/thigh area. ive had loads of tests but nothing has ever shown up. they are a pain in the butt!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
262527 tn?1285385259 The facial bones can become infected (osteomyelitis), or the lining of the brain can become infected (meningitis). The infection can spread outside the sinus and create a pocket of pus (abscess) in an eye socket, the brain, or facial tissue. Is there a correlation here between the sinus thing and the MS thing? Does anyone think that once this surgery is complete I may get rid of my symptoms? Please let me know any information, thoughts or opinions. Thanks.
Avatar f tn I mean I always bit my lip, never thought anything of it, i would go down on past boyfriends without thinking to check if I had a cut on my lip or in my mouth! OMG I hate myself for not knowing!!! My cold sores don't hurt!! They just look like a cut that doesn't heal because the virus is oozing out! Atleast this present cold sore looks that way. I know I was pisses when the dr refused to do a swab test!!! Atleast this dr was smart and did the test! I won't know the results til wed!!!!!
