Abscess drainage children

Common Questions and Answers about Abscess drainage children


Avatar n tn This is an emergency and needs to be treated with IV antibiotics. Sometimes it warrants incision and drainage of the abscess. It is also an indication for tonsillectomy. Please contact your concerned physician at the earliest to rule out this condition. Hope this helped and do keep us posted.
Avatar f tn As of yesterday 8/20 her eye was extremely swollen and there was drainage (pus) in her eye. This morning she woke up and her eye was sealed shut... Warm compress assisted with helping it to open. Saw pedi opthamologist today; she said she has developed cellulities and prescribed augmentin BID, continue with warm compresses and erythromycin. I asked about surgery she said normally not an option for children. My daughters eye is so swollen and it looks so uncomfortable.

Avatar f tn Do pediatricians treat children this young for acne? Are there any recommendations for over-the-counter medication, soap, or ointments?

579258 tn?1250652943 OK .. so I was "supposed" to have MRSA and taking Clindamycin for the past 2+ weeks and that, along with the I&D procedures (Incision & Drainage) to the abscesses, should be done, better, over, and well. Of the 4 areas, the middle one is healed, the bottom one is draining a little and has a knot forming underneath it, the top one is draining a lot and has a large knot forming underneath and around it and the one on my hip fills and then about every 3 days it drains. Sorry ..
Avatar m tn sinus drainage is needed in only 50% of cases. In adults, the drainage of sinuses and abscesses may be needed in 90% of cases. The prognosis is very good with prompt antibiotic therapy and surgical drainage when indicated.
Avatar f tn Hi, I am a state daycare provider and have a question about a family of four children I watch. I only watch them one weekend out of the month so I can't tell how this started out. The little nine month old girl has red blisters on her genitals, that are open and have drainage, and cries when urinating. Some of these have been open and are starting to pit a little.There is no odor or drainage from anywhere else, and she is not irritated anywhere else other than these blisters.
Avatar n tn Treatment is usually cold compresses,over the counter anti-inflammatory analgesics(pain killers) like acetaminophen or ibuprofen,antibiotics if cause of infection is suspected to be a bacteria and surgical drainage if there is any abscess formation. Sebaceous cyst is a closed sac that fills with a fatty white material called sebum produced by sebaceous glands of the epidermis.It is usually painless but can become painful if infected.Then antibiotics are needed.

If the lump persists even after compresses and antiinflammatories,then an ENT specialist’s consultation is desirable. Hope it helps.Take care and pls do keep me posted in case you have any additional doubts.
Avatar n tn Dear all I am posting this message at the request of JoJo45, who is doing a fantastic job starting this forum,to give you all lots of hope. I am 36 years old with 3 children. My story started with a small lump in my right breast which then turned into an abscess and discharged on its own few weeks later. I was initially investigated for cancer and this was excluded. Over the next 12 months I had several abscesses which seemed to be all around the breast at different locations.
579258 tn?1250652943 Many of you are aware I have not been online as much lately and it is due to some escalating personal, financial and health issues. My new motto is .. “Anyone can give up, it's the easiest thing in the world to do. But to hold it together when everyone else would understand if you fell apart, that's true strength.” ~ Anonymous On an annual scale of stress and life events .. mine is off the chart .. however, it would do no good for me or to others to give in and completely fall apart.
Avatar f tn I have a fistula that resulted from a perianal abscess that I had in June 2010. It was finally diagnosed as a fistula in December 2010, and I've been seeing the colorectal surgeon who diagnosed it since then. The tract opening is adjacent to my vagina, which is awesome. So far I've had three surgeries: 1) draining seton placement (January 2011), 2) fistula plug placement (March 2011), and 3) another draining seton placement (October 2011).
Avatar m tn Well, after going to my follow up appointment I was admitted to the hospital for an incision and drainage of the abscess that had formed. I was released today with a lovely open wound and a 'wick.' While in the hospital I was given two courses of antibiotics via IV. My breast feels much better, but looks pretty nasty of course. I am due to go back into the surgical center in 48 hours for a check up.
Avatar f tn It appears to be an abscess that certainly needs to be drained. A preauricular sinus may be infected repeatedly. In that situation it has to be excised once the acute infection has been adequately controlled. I don't agree about high failure rates if the job is done properly. Thanks.
2106890 tn?1333956788 I do not smoke and occassionally drink. I have given birth to two live children and never have experienced a miscarriage. The health issues that I have is endomentriosis. I had a laproscopy last year in June. I was great for a month and then the symptoms before the surgery has been worse then it's ever been sometimes leaving me disabled and not able to get out of bed at times. I am currently getting a new OBGYN appointment since it's been less then a year since the surgery.
Avatar f tn I managed to research some articles on the management of my condition(infected preauricular sinus) on the internet and discovered that my ear swelling was in fact an abscess forming, therefore needing an I&D(incision and drainage) procedure to be undertaken.
Avatar f tn I was referred to an amazing breast specialist who performed an abscess drainage procedure on me. The spots continued to appear and ooze and my breast had turned almost purple. (it felt like a fire cracker was sitting inside my breast) I was then thought to have an immune difficiency problem and was referred to an infectious disease doctor. They put a pic-line in me, in which I had to medicate myself through an IV at home for at least a month. They tested me for Lupus, TB, etc.
Avatar n tn I started having other symptoms like irritable bowel syndrome and fatigue. Then after I had two children my symptoms got a lot worse. FIbromyalga, Interstitial Cystitis, Epi-scleritis (inflammation of the small blood vessels in my eyes), and things like that. My immune system was attacking my body. It took years before I had enough symptoms and saw enough doctors to start getting it treated. They are still not totally sure what is wrong with me.
Avatar f tn Unfortunately, all the antibiotics (continual for 2 years on a high dosage) have left me with chronic stomach issues, migranes and a very weak immune system along with being depressed and anxious over the entire situation. I should also add that I have no children and never breastfed. I've also had other surgeries (nasal, finger etc..) and healed perfectly fine.
1006035 tn?1485579497 That being said we have two cats and they both are *not* declawed. However I'm not opposed to getting it done if they were to turn those claws on my children. I'm all for providing a loving, caring home for my pets but they my CHILDREN come first. In the meantime we are teaching them what is acceptable and what is not (we're using a water bottle and special warning noises that we make that sound similar to hissing).
Avatar m tn I habe gotten better only taking 1 sometimes 2 and i try my best to keep my home as clean as i can with two kids and a non-helping husband that told people including my children that i was just cray and doing drugs. Which after 2 yrs he doesnt say it anymore but he really doesnt show concern.He wont even help clean the bad messes although knowing that it inflames my skin for days. O well thats another thing this skin issue has done.
Avatar n tn I have never had children. It often happens when I stand after sitting or laying down. It's happened before through sex, but that is obvious. Lately it's happened more frequently, but thankfully, I've been alone when it's occurred. I'm 37 and have always been pretty healthy (eat foods with little to no preservatives, whole foods, nothing hydroginated, etc.). Over the past few months, I've had gas more frequently, both vaginal and rectal.
Avatar n tn I've been wondering how you have been. I haven't seen any of your posts in awhile. Is there a possibility that you used something that irritated you down below? If not, sounds like you probably should visit the doctor. Let us know how you make out.
Avatar f tn I then noticed another area a few months later, this time around my nipple and started to have drainage and pain from this site. I treated this conservatively and it seemed to be somewhat relieved by draining and eventually closed up after a couple of months (I am lucky in that my drain channel and site is small). I had this come back again last month - again, my breast just seemed to be changing, retracting tissue, nipple, etc.
Avatar f tn It took two months of suffering to my left breast, 7 different antibiotics, hospitalization, incision and drainage, wound vac, and appr 6-10 abcesses that spontaneously burst on their own before I was diagnosed. By the time I was diagnosed things seemed to calm down, however by the spring when none of my wounds had healed and new abscesses were occasionally appearing and bursting I changed docs and decided to go on prednisone.
Avatar m tn The doctor that I had seen for it said it was because of extreme sinusitis due to a drainage duct being deformed, they went in and cleared it all out and fixed the duct and I had no problems for 6 months. Then wham, it came back, he said it was due to getting a cold and not getting antibiotics for it. I used to be able to lay down on my right side, then that didn't work, then take a short cat nap, then a longer nap and then sleeping overnight.
Avatar n tn Antibiotics or surgical drainage may be required. Look at the skin of the lower back. If you see a cyst or pus filled cyst, it can be a pilonidal cyst or an infection of the sebaceous glands of the skin in the area which can form into an abscess and thereby the acute pain. I feel that physical examination by a doctor is necessary to make a diagnosis. I hope it helps. Take care and regards.
Avatar m tn Finally, hypertonic solution soothes infected or irritated tissue, helps it heal, and helps the cilia in your nasal membranes function better. It’s safe for people of all ages, even children. 3. THE SQUIRT BOTTLE You aren’t going to squirt the saline up your nose, but rather pour it in slowly; it helps to have the right applicator. The best is a 4-ounce plastic travel bottle with a spout that folds open and shut.
Avatar n tn i suffer from painful abscess in the groin area. they are so bad that i cannot sit down,lie down or barely walk. i had one removed when i was 19, it was under my clitiros and the size of an orange. it was excruciationally painful and i had it surgically removed. dr said it was the largest and first she had ever seen in that area. since then i get them regularly around diff areas. at the moment i have one on my outer labia, and also one on the fold of your leg/thigh.
