Avatar n tn so i was wanting to ask if you could give a brief description on the mechanics of an abscess. specifically, 1)how does the abscess manage to make these holes in the jawbone itself? 2) if a person had lived through an abscess (such as they do in modern times) does the damage to the jaw bone repair itself, or is it a permenent fixture? 3) exactly how were these abscesses fatal? how does it truly manage to kill?
Avatar n tn What can happen is that the nerve inside a tooth can die and abscess leading to drainage into the gums which creates the gum boil. It might bleed and can be purulent (pus releasing) or not. The other situation is if there is a localized area of severe periodontitis (gum disease). That can also result in a gum boil. The dentist will check out the area, take an xray and be able to tell you what can be done, either possibly a root canal ,deep scaling/curettage, extraction, referral, etc.
Avatar n tn had the same situation needed to go to er because the location of the boils caused my eyes to swell and close I was put on antibiotic levaquin it reduced swelling but my picking the boil or possibly the size of the boil left ice pick scars on face I only had one recurring outbreak since then so I decided to do a 10 day fast with only lemon diluted water red cayenne pepper and maple syrup (a master cleanse) then I built up my immune system by elimininated cane sugar, white bread, junk foods
Avatar n tn Calcium is the primary mineral in all of our physical processes and it relieves pain. Rubbing an aspirin sized amount on your gums is the fastest path to the nerves of the teeth. Of course you can take recommended dosages as a supplement and that may help. Too much calcium may give headaches and cramps. People raised with or trained in modern medicine tend to have doubts about using natural remedies and will argue against them. It means they are inexperienced.
Avatar n tn Cold sores usually appear on the lips and gums but not on the cheek unless its on the gum area and when you press down on the cheek from the outside, you're causing some pressure/pain onto that gum area Its a little unusual to have more than one cold sore. I would wait another day or two and see if it gradually gets better. If not, it would be a good idea to go in on Monday to have it checked out by your doctor.
Avatar n tn My daughter woke up with a swollen cheek on right side, she's had a gum boil there for a few days and I'd been cleaning it with hydrogen peroxide and it was going away but now her face is swollen and the entire top section of her gums on that side is swollen as well. She had tooth work there over a year ago, had a root canal. Is this an infection from this root canal and will the tooth need to be extracted, it's still a baby tooth? Will antibiotics help and how dangerous is this infection?
Avatar n tn Fast forward to 2 nights ago I noticed a dull throbbing ache not on the tooth itself but on the gum all the way up near where the inner cheek meets the gumline. I had experienced pain with this tooth in recent past (sensitivity to hot and cold) but this pain was in a completely different location. Yesterday morning my cheek was swollen.
Avatar m tn There were a few things that could of caused this but about a month before I had a HUGE abscess on the back of my leg right on my *** cheek. The urgent care doctor I visited seen it was one of the worst he had ever seen, gave me a shot and medication to take and within 4-5 days it wasn't bothering me anymore but there is still a red bump where it happened. I am very concerned with my nose as it is really starting to hurt and it seems to be getting more swollen as the day progresses.
Avatar n tn A moving cyst is most likely benign. BUT, to be on the safe side, do let the vet take a look at it. It is probably a fatty tumor, or LIPOMA. If it is one, they are generally harmless unless they grow too big, or put pressure on surrounding tissues. Don't be too worried. My dog has a history of Lipomas, and sebacious cysts, and other tiny cysts. And she has had them for many years, some since she was younger. She only once had to have one lump removed, that was an infected hair-follicle.
2093279 tn?1379551553 Hello, In a dental abscess, or tooth abscess there is accumulation of pus inside the teeth or gums. The abscess usually originates from a bacterial infection and is mostly caused by a dental infection. The common presenting complaints are severe toothache, breath odour, fever, pain when chewing, sensitivity to hot or cold, swelling of gums, swollen glands etc. It can be diagnosed with the help of clinical examination, dental x-rays and other tests. Antibiotics are given for the infection.
Avatar n tn on my vaginal more on the pubic hair i dont wear panties that often but now i see them simular symtoms on other parts of my body-------1 on my upper thigh like a boil, another was in the middle of my back and upper arm i even notice i had one come 1time on the side of my face, eyebrow and now i have a sore in the inside of ear like a blackhead/scab.
Avatar n tn Also, the swelling doesn't appear to be getting worse, but it feels hard and swollen further down on my jaw than it did before. Another thing, I can feel the little boil or bump from the abscess on the gums under my tongue. I didn't notice it before, but that was probably because of it's location. I was just wondering if it's normal for it to still be there, because the dentist said that the infection was draining nicely while she was in there.
Avatar f tn Now my whole head hurts, sore throat, swollen glands. Now is this just coincidence that it coinsides with this abscess? The dentist on monday acted like since it popped it was "gone now", I just dont think that is the case.
1939607 tn?1324292900 As I proceeded to brush my teeth later on last night, I noticed that there was a scratch on the gum/roof of my mouth in the last two upper molars area.It is not a gum boil, it looks like a real scratch and it is sensitive to touch with my tongue/toothbrush/ finger. Also, on the same side of the mouth, the soft gum where my lower wisdom tooth used to be looked slightly scratched too. Today it feels better but the scratches are still there.
Avatar n tn I had an abscessed tooth removed after being on antibiotics for one week, my jaw was a bit swollen before he removed the tooth the swelling had not gone down with the antibiotics. There was an awful smell which he said was the abscess. I am taking amoxcillin at the moment and it now 8 days since the extraction but my jaw is still swollen the same as it was before the extraction, is this normal should the swelling be going down by now, it is not really painful.

Avatar m tn Wash off your hands with soap. The blood vessels on one side of the nose swell up with blood, on purpose, to close off that side of the nose to air. This gives the cilia in the closed nostril a chance to clean out all the pollution and mucus. When it’s clean, it opens up and the other side is closed to repeat the process. The things that swell up to close your nostrils are called turbinates. Keep this in mind when you are blowing your nose.
Avatar n tn Hi, i found a lump on my armpit it got soo big, i ended up going to the doctors about it and he drained it, but didnt give me any antibiotics which i thought was abit mean... anyway i found another one, on the same armpit but just next to my old one... i went to the doctor and he gave me some antibiotics and said if it doesnt go away then i will have to go to the hospital =O and get like knocked out :[ so they can clean it better and all that, which i DONT want to go..
Avatar f tn I've been dealing with it for about 9 years. I'm currently on an anti-depressant to get my life back on track, and I'm fighting hard to be happy again. We can help eachother, THERE IS A CURE! No, I havent figured it out just yet, but I'm trying everything and I'm never giving up. Not just for myself, but for YOU as well. B a r e K a n v a s @ a o l . c o m I'm currently irrigating with NeilMed Sinus Rinse around 4 times a day, tilting my head back not forward, and it It seems to be helping.
Avatar n tn Ok, so I've been putting up with on again, off again itching for months on my labia, near my vaginal opening. Never "diagnosed" with HPV but I did get rid of a suspected wart this past year. Can you have a bacterial infection without discharge? It drives me CRAZY sometimes, the only thing that calms it is gold bond ointment, which is minty and refreshing but I'd like no itch. No "rash" that I can see, unless I give in and scratch.
