Common Questions and Answers about Abscess boil thigh

abscess

Avatar n tn 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).
Avatar m tn i have a HUGE spot on my thigh area that i believe is a boil. It is very red and very large. Had several absecces(spelling?) during a pregancy in my breast all inwhich had to be opened by a doctor and had a reoccuring cyst on my tail bone that had to be drained. I dont want to go to the doctors if i dont need to. not sure if i should wait it out.
Avatar n tn Hello, One possibility for such kind of lesions could be boil or carbuncle. A boil, also referred to as a skin abscess, is a localized infection deep in the skin. A boil generally starts as a reddened, tender area. Over time, the area becomes firm and hard. Eventually, the center of the abscess softens and becomes filled with pus. Apply warm compresses and topical antibiotic cream on the boils like Mupirocin or Bactroban.If the symptoms persist then oral antibiotics may be needed.
Avatar f tn I recently went to a park with my friend and when I got home,noticed small bumps on my thigh. I assumed they would go away soon enough and didn't bother about them too much. In the next 2 days, the bumps had grown massively to the size of ping pong balls and hurt a lot. In the middle of my ping pong bumps, was a scab and it would come often come off and release pus and blood. I googled this and the signs that matched the most was a boil. However, boils are supposed to be red and soft.

Avatar n tn I recently had a boil high on my thigh that had a pea sized abscess. It occurred at the site of a follicle I was picking at. It came to a head about a week ago and is healed over, but still a little red. Also, about 2 and a half weeks ago, I trimmed my pubic hairs with scissors down to about half an inch. I had never done this before, and the hairs poked and itched incessantly for several days.
Avatar n tn It is true that herpes can go dormant for a period of time... but 9 years? Unless something has changed. It might be a cause from the minor surgery? It could also be a rubbing thing? Have you done anything different, detergent? etc? If it doesn't change, I'd go see someone about it just in case.
Avatar m tn Based on your description it seems that it could be either a boil or a recurrent subcutaneous thigh abscess. These are known to recur if untreated as focus of the infection persists once it is healed and may erupt from same or nearby spot. If it is a boil or abscess antibiotic cover and analgesics may be needed. Also rule out possibility of a lipoma, DVT and muscle spasm. A complete medical history and clinical examination will be helpful. Take care and regards!
Avatar n tn Do you have fever, redness and soreness? Then it can be an abscess/boil. It can be a lipoma (Tumor of fat cells usually just under the skin) or a fibroma (A tumor that is comprised mainly of fibrous connective tissue). Did you suffer from any prior injury on that site? Injuries can lead to growth of bacteria as a result of which there can be a swelling along with pain and redness. Antibiotics and simple pain-killers can help in this case. Pls get yourself examined by a surgeon/dermatologist.
Avatar f tn Hello, From the symptoms it looks like a boil. A boil generally starts as a reddened, tender area. Over time, the area becomes firm and hard. Eventually, the center of the abscess softens and becomes filled with pus. Finally, the pus "forms a head," which can be surgically opened or spontaneously drain out through the surface of the skin. Apply warm compresses and some topical antiseptics. Also wear loose-fitting cotton clothing and use an antibacterial soap or mild soap like dove.
Avatar f tn You clearly do have some form of infection. Could be a boil or an abscess which may require lancing and a course of antibiotics. Of course, the problem with it being at the back of your thigh is that you are not able to see it properly. The other symptoms may have no connection with your thigh lump, but still mention them to the doctor. It is very likely that the headache with the blood in the nose is likely to be a sinus infection.
Avatar n tn Hello, The lump sounds like a boil or an abscess and the lingering pain is due to some residual infection. Consult a dermatologist and get a course of antibiotics. Also take some anti inflammatory pain killers like Ibuprofen prescribed from your doctor. It is very difficult to precisely confirm a diagnosis without examination and investigations and the answer is based on the medical information provided. For exact diagnosis, you are requested to consult your doctor. I sincerely hope that helps.
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 and gave me antibiotics (oral) and topical. I took these just as prescribed but within two days i got a painful boil on inner thigh, it had a black dot in the center of it. I went back to doctor and he said to continue taking antibiotics and come back if it gets worse. It got better, and about one week after finishing the antibiotics the same thing occurred.

Avatar f tn I have a very painful growth at the top of my thigh, not in the crease, but close to it. It looks like a large pimple. Very red and sensitive to the touch. It has appeared just before my menstrual period starts, grows and then "explodes" with pus and some blood. It has occurred for the past few months, consistently. I'm nervous about seeing a doctor, mainly because I'm not sure which kind of doctor to go see. Gynecologist? General Practitioner? Dermatologist? Any ideas what it is?
Avatar m tn So i feel a mild pain on the left side of my thigh and inner thigh. Can this boil be genital herpes? I have only had sex only once in my life and it did not even last for five mins.
Avatar m tn Hi! I am 26 years old and have been having a problem with red bumps on my inner thigh. I been to the doctors several times, but they have not "fixed" me yet. I have just been worried that it might be something like MRSA or something serious. I was on the antibiotic bactrim for a while and they got better, but now and then one will pop up and get me worked up again. It started off with bumps (zit like) coming up on my inner thigh (also some on my arm).
Avatar n tn I have a lump on my inner thigh and it is about the size of a dime but,it keeps getting smaller then bigger and it is a bit discolored like a purple brown and it hurts only when it rubs on my pants or when i touch it. thanks.
Avatar n tn From my recent research I think i may have a sebaceous cyst on my left inner thigh, next to my bikini line. I was just wondering how long I should try the warm compresses before I see a physician. It is slightly tender to the touch so I am a little worried it may be inflamed. Any comments would be appreciated.
Avatar m tn just the other day I was using the restroom when I noticed a small lump near my in thigh by my groin. felt a little hard, and i thought it was a zit. but I could not pop it. I have gotten something similar under my armpit, and I left it alone and it went away.
Avatar m tn Hello, Thanks for posting your query. First of all, you need to check whether you are having any abscess or boil in the pubic hair which is causing pain in the area and also radiating pain in the testicles. Boils are caused by infection of the hair follicle by staph aureus. If there is no boil in the area then other causes need to be investigated. It could be due to excessive bicycle riding in your case.
Avatar f tn Hello, It looks like a boil or an abscess. 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. Take some over the counter pain reliever and consult a doctor for examination and antibiotics prescription.
Avatar m tn Hello, It can be a boil, abscess or due to infected cyst. Do not use any cosmetic products at the sites. Also wear cotton undergarments. Application of topical antibiotic like Neosporin cream and oral antiinflammatories like ibuprofen/acetaminophen are also helpful. If the symptoms are severe then it will be best to consult a dermatologist It is very difficult to precisely confirm a diagnosis without examination and investigations and the answer is based on the medical information provided.

Boil on buttocks is usually due to plugged sweat glands that become infected or by an ingrown hair.
Avatar n tn i have a mobile lump on my inner thigh about 1 cm in diameter it started of as a small pimple witch i squeezed and clear sticky fluid came out it then got bigger and became painfull for about a week it has been painfree for 2 weeks and no fluid comes out now when squeezed but it is still there
Avatar n tn Right where my inner thigh meets with my labia majora (in the skin crease) I have a lump there, its about the size of a marble. It almost seems like a HUGE pimple, but there is no head to it. I have had them before and when I squeezed them, white puss stuff came out and then they go away. But I squeezed this one, and blood came shooting out all over the place. I didn't even squeeze hard! Anyways, should I be worried that blood came out?
Avatar n tn boils are often caused by infected hair folicals. Bacteria from infection form an abscess or pocket of pus. The abscess can become larger than a ping pong ball. Boils occur in areas where there is hair chafting. the face, neck, armpit, breast, groin, and buttocks are common sites.....then it goes on to treatment with cloth. doesn't mention any serious outcomes like surgery.
