Abscess after care

Common Questions and Answers about Abscess after care


Avatar m tn I have fairly white healthy teeth, but I have an abscess behind my tooth, how can I get rid of it, or sooth the pain.
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 n tn In Nov 2008, I had a swelling below my right breast which was diagnosed as "Abscess". It would ooze out puss with blood and was very painful. After healing,a scar developed around that spot and A FOUL SMELL THAT OF PUS actually emanates from that area(i.e when you touch the area surrounding the scar) What could be happening inside?
Avatar m tn by the time i got to the er the doctor told me that my abscess was 1 inch by 3/8 of an inch big. that is pretty large for an abscess. with something like this the longer you put it off the worst it will get. hope you feel better soon.
Avatar f tn I had to page my dentist the day after Christmas and she called in a prescription for antibiotics and main meds for me. If not your dentist, then a doctor should be able to do the same for you. Or go to an emergency room or urgent care. In the mean time, ice water in your mouth can help. Rinse with salt water or hydrogen peroxide mixed with water. And take vitamin C. Drink lots of fluids, and ibuprofen is probably the best thing for the pain and swelling.
Avatar m tn I had a severe scraching sensation on by buttock for about 2 weeks following which an abcess appeard on the right buttock. It was treated and cured with antibiotic for 8 days.

Avatar f tn I had an abscess in my right breast 10 years ago and it left a little lump after it healed. Two weeks ago I developed an abscess in the same spot. My GP recommended a week of antibiotics (Augmentin) and it started to drain on its own two days back. I feel a thickened area which hasn't gone down. Should I be worried? The abscess continues to drain slowly and I have covered it with sterilized gauze. Please help.

Avatar m tn Dear Guys, I developed abscess three times with in two weeks interval in my groin area.....the last two were big and required surgery with full ansthesia. My doc therefore suggested to escape the shot at least for one week so i did not take the shot last week. I continued to take it again but I developed another abscess on the preannal position. I am afraid it will force me to discontinue the therapy. Has any one exprienced such problem during therapy?
Avatar n tn Why do I still have pain in my breast abscess wound after my breast abscess incision heals?
Avatar m tn I had an abscess size of golf ball near my tailbone , I went to doctor they did the incision made a cut on corner of my abscess and drain the puss out of it , and put bandage on it after 1 week I went to follow up appointment doctor check and he said there is still some puss left inside it so he made another small cut and drain the puss out after that after 1 week went to third appointment doctor saw my abscess there was still a small lump left so he told me to remove it permanently we have to d
Avatar f tn they only thing to get rid of the abscess is to take antibiotics to get rid of the infection and after baby is born they may have to do a root canal or pull tooth all together. mine had to be pulled out. but definitely get it checked out i was told by my dentist that it can get bad enough and get into your blood stream...
Avatar n tn Hello, It is strange that even after surgical removal the abscess has came back. It means that it can be a cyst and the entire contents of the cyst have not been taken out. Consult your dermatologist and discuss this with him. Recurrent boils/abscess are found in diabetes, HIV infection, or other immune system disorders. So please get your blood sugar evaluated Hope it helps. Take care and please do keep me posted on how you are doing.

Avatar n tn Hi, I had a tooth out next to my front tooth about 6 years ago and it got an abscess after the gum healed and closed about 6 months later. I have a wound outside the gum and I feel the abscess when I press under my nose. I have been to a surgeon and the xray showed a dark spot, but when they cut the gum I felt it all and cried and cried. Due to having high blood pressure they didn't numb the area well at all, so I made them stop.
1657910 tn?1302375661 Hi Ladies, I remember reading (I think from Jo) that there is a 2 day time window to get an abscess drained from your doctor. Why is this? When is this? Etc, etc, etc???? My docs have never mentioned this and I have just always had mine burst on their own. I usually take care of the wounds myself, though I did just find out that one of them I should of had packed. My hubby and friend really thought I should go to the doctor but I said it was ok.
Avatar n tn it is an abscess that causes scar tissue to build if you don't take care of it . The antibiotics are to clear up the cellulitis. One thing I was told was to never shave down below...use nair or veet...because when you shave..and you get those little "bumps"....staph which lives on your skin enters into the nick and you end up with this problem...
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 n tn I returned to the ER the following day and had the packing removed for the final time and then was told to have a follow up visit with either my primary care doctor or dermotologist to make sure it's healing properly. I believe that this abscess was cause by a pair of underwear that was too tight, cutting off the circulation to a gland that lies right outside the crease of the thigh.
Avatar f tn I was released 3 days later but the following day readmitted due to pain. The day after that I was given a CT scan and my MD found an abscess on my right side. Immediately the following day I was sent back to my oral surgeon's office which is attached to a hospital. Later that day I had surgery on the abscess, the Oral Surgeon enlisted the help of an ENT doctor also. He knicked my sinus during surgery.

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 m tn I was diagnosed with lymphoma a couple months ago, and have been having alot of health issues, but now, I noticed swelling yesterday in my gumline of a tooth that has today become painful. I had an issue with this tooth and side of my mouth right after I was diagnosed with lymphoma, and the dentist told me there was a small crack in the tooth but did not want to do anything at that time because of it affecting my treatment.
Avatar f tn Hi! I am going thru something called chronic breast abscesses. It started back on 6/12 and as I write this question I have multiple abscesses on my left breast some about to break open other that look like a big bruise and some in my right breast. They're very painful & after 4 surgeries I am very sad to say it seems to get worst every time. My surgeon sent me to an infectious disease doctor, 3 weeks ago but still unable to see her bc of my insurance.
