Abscess after pregnancy

Common Questions and Answers about Abscess after pregnancy


Avatar f tn make sure your razor is clean. I also use witch hazel under my arms after I shave before I put on deoderant. If you need relief, use a hot towel to bring it to a head. Then burn tha tip of a safety pin or a needle and stick it in that middle. You will need assistance because it hurts like hell. Then SQUEEEEEEEEZE it til you can't squeeze it anymore.
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 I just recently had another MRI which showed no abscess present but a mild broad based disc bulge at L3-4 and L4-5. Could this be related to the abscess? I had an MRI about two days after the site was lanced the first time since they were concerned about meningitis. Also, are epidural abscesses very common? What is the main cause of them? I had an unbelievable uneventful pregnancy but this has really made me question whether I want to have another child.
Avatar f tn Doctor suggested me to take calpol thrice a day as at that time, I was 7 month pregnant. After 10 days, it was severe pain there and then doctor advised me for admission in hospital for at least 48 hours. After the breast scan, mastitis was found from 9 to 11 clockwise. Doctor advised me to complete the course of amoxycyllin (500 mg, oral) thrice a day, this medicine responded well and the red area on the breast almost disappeared.
Avatar f tn I'm 35eks,6 days n I went to the hospital and the doctor said I had a abscess n they had to drain it and put a small catheter in. I didn't know what was about to happen, it hurt like crazy is all I can say. If anyone has something like this get it check right away because it will only get worse.
Avatar n tn Has anyone experiecned this issue. It is sometimes called a subareola abscess. This is a chronic condition- I have had 3 surgeries to removed the abscess because of the pain associated with it. It is back again and my last surgery was in November. I quit smoking because that is what my one doctor to me the was the ONLY cause and that is I quit smoking it will stop them from returning 100% of the time.
592047 tn?1243389587 Swelling causes pain in abscesses so keeping the pain down to a minimum will help. The healing abscess should be much less painful after 5 days or so. Just keep pampering her, giving her the antibiotics, and soaking the paw. Once the kittens are weaned (if they are normal, hopefully) please have your cat spayed/desexed!
Avatar f tn Have just been diagonsed with GM with abscess after almost 6 mths. It actually started as Fibrodenomas in April 10'.. That settled down with Evening Primrose and Vit E.         In Sept 10' one day I got to see this horrifying looking lump above the areola which was tender, sore and dark in colour. I visited a General Surgeon after 8 days (thinking it would disappear on its on in between).

175665 tn?1306462624 And I've just started getting all 4 of my wisedom teeth in. I can't do anything about this until after the baby is born right? My mouth is swollen and I can't even chew on the right side of my mouth. Do you know if there is anything I can do while still pg? Yeah, I am young, I'll be 21 in April.
Avatar f tn I have not been to the doctors for either because I have had no insurance, but I am in the process of getting insurance here soon and seeing a doctor within the next couple weeks (for my pregnancy and abscess/fistula). I am never in any pain from the possible fistula, but am leaking small amount of pus and blood daily. I'm thinking I have a small fistula.
Avatar n tn Is this true should I had been on bed rest longer???? Was told pregnancy test will be done 14 days after transfer. I cheated did a home test 10 days after- mid morning (not 1st urine) came back negative-is this a false negative did I jump too soon could i still be pregnant 3days from now???????
Avatar f tn Can someone answer this question: How do you know you have an abscess? Do you do self-check or use the mammogram results? JoJo- My Thyroid test came back negative so I've continued to avoid soy products as much as I can which is very difficult since almost everything has soy including vitamins. There are a few multi-vitamins that do not have soy but you have to search hard. Also, Thanks for starting this forum! To All - I've continued the American Heart ***.
1227139 tn?1462338230 a 4 week long untreated bladder infection (UTI) turned a cyst into an abscess (Bartholin's cyst), A genetic diagnosis confirmed of MTHFR (genetic mutation/variant), a early pregnancy lost due to failing to stay implanted (Chemical Pregnancy), A surgery to remove the Bartholin's cyst, and to top/end it all off - A late period occurring on CD28....

Avatar n tn the ectopic was my 2nd pregnancy. My first one was similar to yours maybe. I was preganant but didnt realise as i had what i thought was my period and then it became this full blown bleeding...which later was diagnosed (after 10 days of bleeding) as a miscarriage. My level then was 56 (after 10 days of bleeding). I then had to have a D&C as it just would go down. Stayed at 56. It took a week after my D&C for my levels to go back to below 5.
Avatar f tn Its been 4 months and I am still not well-at all. I have dizzeness, severe headaches and pain, and always feel like im under water or in a fog. Oh ya I stammer a lot and have memory loss and am so very tired and just wiped out. Sometimes I dont see things right. When will this all end? Can someone tell me what kind of meds works best for the pain in the head. I tried Vicodin but got tired of being nausea, Then I was on Butalbital and that was worse-didnt help the pain.
9070037 tn?1414636566 Have anyone experienced having an allergy of something that you didn't have before pregnancy? I just notice my eyelids are swollen. Just swollen where I normally put my eyeliner above my eyelashes. I never have a problem like this before my pregnancy and I have been wearing make up since a was 15 yrs old! The weird thing is that only that area get swollen.
Avatar f tn It gets worse in the evening and also my belly start to get bigger like swollen in the afternoon. After 1 week of these symptoms they gave me Doxycycline 100mg, which didn't really help. Today 2 weeks later after all day in hospital have exactly the same symptoms like right after the biopsy! They keep saying if i'm not bleeding, have no fever, there is nothing to be worried about. They did my blood test, said there is no sign of infection in it.
Avatar n tn When I went back for my 4 wk checkup the doctor asked me a lot of questions, one was if I had a period and I told him yes. He then informed me that some women do have periods after a hysterectomy. AFTER HAVING A 2ND PERIOD SINCE SURGERY I AM WONDERING IF THIS IS NORMAL OR NOT????? Everyone says it isn't.
Avatar f tn This discussion is related to Problems after bowel resection. In February 2006 I had an emergency bowel resection. For no apparent reason, a large portion of my small intestine had twisted and the blood supply to my intestine had been cut off and died. About 40% of my small intestine (ileum and ileocecal valve) had to be removed. For the next 2-3 months I had horrible diarrhea after everything I ate. Within one week I went from 135 lbs. to 115 lbs.
Avatar f tn There is a small area behind my upper front tooth that is very swollen and hurts a lot. I already had an abscess and a tooth pulled because of infection and I don't want to go through that again. He says I should wait but I don't want to loose my teeth either. I read that hydrogen peroxide helps with possible infection and sore gums. Is it safe to use as mouthwash during pregnancy?
Avatar m tn I read a few places that the modern tests are conclusive to like 99% after 34 days, but every other place says longer. I've heard many times that my interaction was "low risk" meaning "some risk"/ I have had a sore throat for most of the time since then. tested positive for strep 2 weeks ago, but the meds haven't helped my throat. It doesn't really scratch, just a bit uncomfortable to swallow. I've read it's tell tale for HIV... What is the community's thought?
1701902 tn?1307205473 After a textbook pregnancy and vaginal delivery 11 weeks ago, my wife has had a lot of pain in various places. Since, most of the pain has gone away except three areas of her abdomen which have instead increased in pain. One area is on her right side in sort of a "C" shape and is constant and sharp. The opposite side has a similar pain that comes and goes. Lastly, she has soreness all across the top of her bladder. A crude diagram is shown here: http://dl.dropbox.
Avatar n tn I have had a number of people email me after posting this who also had a similar thing happen to them after being sick. I actually saw my doctor two weeks ago and mentioned it to her and she said that sometimes it happens and not to worry about it. I too knew it wasn't an STD b/c I have always been tested very regularly but of course anything in that area always freaks people out.
Avatar f tn I'm 20 weeks pregnant and have a fistula from an abscess operation carried out in October 09. It hasn't really been to much of a problem during my pregnancy, however the wound has now stopped allowing me to secrete any toxins and I am experiencing constant pain and uncomfortableness in that area and a hard lump has developed which is similar to the abscess I experienced previously. My surgeon told me when I was 7 weeks pregnant I would require surgery to correct after the baby is born.
Avatar f tn Last spring I developed a perirectal fistula due to a previous abscess. This does not seem to be related to the birth of my third child as she was born in June 2007 and I developed the abscess in December 2007. In June 2008 the surgeon placed a seton inside the fistula. The second stage of the surgery involves the removal of the seton and the insertion of a "plug" to heal the fistula. I became pregnant between stages 1 and 2 of the fistulectomy.
1361959 tn?1277687317 Also some things that set it off is just the pressure on my stomach when im lying on my back, my clothes against it, if i even touch or rub the area, sometimes after a bm, coughing or sneezing feels like i move something out of place. I havent noticed anything relating to my diet.
