Abscess care plan

Common Questions and Answers about Abscess care plan


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 last week i developed an abcsess in my tooth. my cheek became very swollen. the doctor said the infection from the abscess had passed from my tooth into my cheek. they put me on keeflex. within 24 hours about 60% of the swelling in my cheek had subsided. i am now on day 6 of a 10 days worth of the keeflex.
Avatar f tn I went to an Urgent Care clinic due to an abscess in my cheek due to a tooth. My whole left side of my cheek was swollen and sore. The DR. Gave me antibiotics to take for 10 days she said I shouldn't have to have it drained. It has been 24 hours and the swelling has gone down a tad and I feel minimal pain ( mostly when I try to smile). My question is was it necessary for the abscess to be drained or will the antibiotics help it to start draining on its own?
1219288 tn?1266694789 You are additionally sarcastic, just because the person answering did not agree to your plan and nobody would have from your comment. I currently have a huge boil in not the greatest location either, and it does not hurt at all. Hot showers or a bath in Epson salt actually helps the most most of the time. There are both ER doctors and PC and everyone else for that matter who makes mistakes; does not mean you eliminate the whole profession or specialty.
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).
Avatar n tn i had a cat scan done around 3 weeks ago and was found small nonspecific sclerotic focus seen in the right proximal femur which maybe due to an abscess. There is sclerosis of the right sacroiliac joint.what would cause this abscess. The dr is waiting for the insurance company to get an mri.
Avatar f tn In the meantime, I am placing warm salt water in the area of my incisors every hour, switching between two ice packs every 15 minutes, eating soft foods, and taking amoxicillin. I had just taken my second dose of it today, and plan to take my last one for the day in about 8 hours. I am hoping that the amoxicillin and warm salt water will help with keeping the infection under control. I hope I am doing enough until Tuesday. With that said, I need your help.
579258 tn?1250652943 Fearing I had an abdominal abscess that was nearing the bursting point, I went to a third physician at the local county Emergency Room. Following an ultrasound and bloodwork, an iv with morphine and anti-nausea medication, the ER physician felt it was necessary to call in a surgical consult. Two young interns came and assessed the situation and felt the mass was above and not through the abdominal muscles and completely ruled out the hernia scenario.
579258 tn?1250652943 Last night I went to the ER for a dressing change that involves unpacking and repacking 2 newly drained abscess areas. As I arrived, the pain became sharp and shooting and I was not able to sit; no position was comfortable. We went through the normal check-in process with standard questions, BP check and an ID band and was taken back to an exam room. Once into a hospital gown and a sheet, I laid down on the table with my head elevated and my knees bent.
Avatar m tn Some fingering but one time I had a small cut on one of my finger. No bleeding. I was diagnosed with anal abscess and had a drained in October. I also had similar problem a few months before but I did not go to the doctor the first time it happened. Currently I am having the same problem again but not as severe. I got tested for hiv in JAN of this year and did not have ANY sex until EARLY august of this year.
405614 tn?1329147714 I was told I needed to be seen, and made an appointment for today. Over the weekend, I noticed pain on the other side, and discovered an abscess. This afternoon, at my appointment, I discovered the molar on the right side was cracked in a couple places (already lots of fillings), and it needs a crown. X-rays of the left side didn't make it clear which tooth was causing the large abscess, which was kind of between two teeth.
Avatar m tn I have had an extreme increase in the amount of severe headaches I have been having. I do not know if that is related. I plan on making an appointment with an ear,nose, and throat doctor tomorrow. But I am becoming more concerned with the sheer size and pain it is causing.
Avatar n tn Also said that surgery must be done to remove tumor and that to be sure a good surgeon performs due to the many nerves in the area and that of face. While I plan on getting a second opinion I'm interested in your thoughts. Thanks.
Avatar m tn Today there is a marble size lump on my wrist and it hurts severely and the vein has a hard lump again. I do plan on going into the doctor tomorrow and seeing my regular doctor because it is causing too many problems with my hand and arm. Is there any suggestions to help take care of this?
Avatar n tn Ask your vet about making payments to have the abscess taken care of. If you are considering putting him down because of an abscessed tooth I can tell you that most vets would sternly recommend against it, and it probably will not cost you a lot more to have the tooth taken care of than it would to have him euthanized. PLEASE consider having the tooth doctored. An abscessed tooth is so minor, don't consider putting your dog to sleep over something like this!
799181 tn?1246690273 hi barry, the pain is only bad before the abscess is drained, once it has the relief is unreal, if it gets to the stage where i need to take a narcotic then they will be given to my hubby to dispense for me, and locked away where i cannot get to them. i am hoping that this wont happen, but who knows!
Avatar m tn Hello Dr. I am a 31 year old male. I had an abscess in my anal region that burst open as i scrubbed while bathing and left a raw open wound about an inch and a half in diameter. I used manuka honey after reading about it's healing and antiseptic properties, on the wound morning and night for about a month. The abscess wound seemed to be healing but I started getting very itchy and red around the area (groin and anal region) and started noticing pimple-like red spots on buttocks.
4628530 tn?1369112686 I thought maybe it would help all the pus come out once and for all. Then yesterday I had an abscess come open near my areola. Now it is impossible to breastfeed on that side or pump because very little milk is being produced and because blood comes out. I believe it is possible to breastfeed with GM, as long as there aren't any open abscesses near the areola.I spoke to a lactation consultant, and now I have to decide whether I should continue to breastfeed on the left, healthy breast.
Avatar f tn Pain in the upper left abdomen can be due to stomach issues (GERD or hiatal hernia), spleen issues, due to an abscess below the left diaphragm, a hematoma (localized collection of blood), an abscess, or a muscle pull. .
Avatar f tn Yesterday I noticed the tooth seems to have changed in shape by feeling it with my tongue. I'm pretty sure it is decaying, even though there is no pain. I plan to go to a dentist and get this taken care of. However, I have a trip coming up where I'll be out of town for more than a week. I leave in 2.5 weeks. I have a feeling I'll have to get all my wisdom teeth out, and recovery can take a while. Also, it will be much more financially practical in a month.
Avatar m tn I have 5 teeth left on my bottom and two are broke off at gumline. I plan on getting all 5 teeth pulled with two implants. This is definetly genetic due to the fact I am only 37 years old and take excellent care of my teeth (both of my parents lost their teeth very early in life). The teeth broke off (again) and my dentist cemented them back on, they are now lose and have a very funny odor.
Avatar f tn It would be best to discuss the situation in detail with your treating doctor after a review appointment for suggestion of further management plan, if required. Hope the information is helpful. Take care!
Avatar f tn In October 2013 I had a recurring abscess in my tonsils that resulted in my tonsils being removed. At that time, I had a CBC panel done where my white blood cell count came back as 6.8 (in the normal range). Two weeks ago, I had an exam and was diagnosed with a 12cm ovarian cyst that is being surgically removed this week. My pre-op bloodwork included another CBC panel, and my white blood cell count was listed as being 3.9.
5609181 tn?1375335972 Right now he has a broken tooth on one side and an abscess on the other and the abscess is causing him a lot of pain. He's been looking around for a couple weeks now trying to find the least expensive dentist. I would suggest doing the same thing, don't just pick the first dentist, have a couple consultations with different dentists and see if they can work out payment plans even to help you out more. If you're early enough that there is still time to save then that's even better.
Avatar f tn It could be possible that when they were preparing the tooth for the filling, they either didn't completely clean out all the bacteria in the cavity area, or they didn't clean the entire area they were working on, leaving behind some bacteria, or even tiny tooth chips/fragments that have now caused an abscess.
Avatar f tn Give suitable antibiotics to suppress infection and prevent further infection . Please consult the surgeon for the complete management plan . Hope his helps you . Take care and regards !

Avatar f tn Hi! stills red? or it drained? because as for what you are saying it seems an abscess to me! Take care!
Avatar f tn ) I have to check on what the costs are here in NJ (only been here two months and haven't needed the vet we plan to use) but I recall they do a vaccine/shot package that sounds about the same to what PrettyKitty1 pays. He did mention something about a female spay costing $300, but that's VERY high so I'm assuming that would include aborting a pregnant cat AND fixing it. I know, very vague, but I'll check on Joisey prices if you want.
Avatar n tn says I will not need treatment for maybe 5-10 years or even longer.Our plan is every 3 month blood work and every 6 month exam by him. But this pelvis mass is separate from all that. Can you give me some suggestions or advise? Thank you so much for your time.
