Abscess drainage foot

Common Questions and Answers about Abscess drainage foot


Avatar f tn Have you been checked for diabetes? It could be an abscess needing urgent drainage. You must go to the emergency room and an urgent x ray done to check for any ankle fracture. Duplex ultrasound is indicated if there is a suspicion of vascular disease or blockage in blood vessel or a clot. I cannot comment further without a clinical evaluation. It would be prudent to get a surgeon’s consultation immediately. Hope this helps. Take care.
Avatar n tn Hello, This sore on the foot can be due to trauma, abscess, carbuncle or viral sore. Apply warm compresses on the boil and keep the area clean. Drainage of the boil is done only when it becomes soft and forms a head. Take some over the counter pain reliever and consult a doctor for examination and antibiotics prescription. It is very difficult to precisely confirm a diagnosis without examination and investigations and the answer is based on the medical information provided.

Avatar f tn Please consult a doctor who can examine you to diagnose and decide whether you need just antibiotics and anti-inflammatory drugs or you need incision drainage of abscess or you need a dopplar ultrasound.

471737 tn?1327256051 The surgeon had to do and incision and drainage procedure under the left toe to drain out the abscess, followed by several more days of antibiotic drips. The wound was left open, a very painful experience which took two months to heal. Thus I try to mix the mometasone cream with an antibiotic cream for applications on the sole, as well as on my fingers and palm where the eczema tends to cause breaks or fissures on the skin. However, this time, I have mometasone ointment and Bactroban cream.
Avatar n tn just to add to the information its been very hard to walk on my foot becuase of the pain, it could be infected im not sure.
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 He said he does not think that antibiotics and drainage work as well as the cortisteroids. He has treated 1 other patient with this condition. He also has said that he believes that mastectomy is not a cure. I have been tested for TB. Does anyone have any thoughts on all of this.
Avatar m tn I am relieved to know that I am not alone (though I wouldn't wish this nightmare on anyone). I went to the ER about a year ago for a really painful abscess that appeared out of the blue. A Physicians Assistant diagnosed me with an "ingrown hair that might have gotten staph" after she poked the wound with her (bare & unsanitized) finger. I was sent on my way with a prescription for antibiotics. I returned within a week because it grew about 5 x in size.
Avatar m tn Sometimes, however, you can have a sinus infection that won’t show up on a CAT scan of your sinuses. In this case, you will have drainage into your throat, called post-nasal drip, and your throat often have too much mucus in it, which can cause a mild sore throat or cough on a chronic basis. 9. WHAT ARE THE SYMPTOMS? The main symptom of sinusitis is pain. Pain in your face, pain in your head.
Avatar n tn if you are having any discharge (drainage) with a foul odor, with green, yellow, thich drainage or any coloration you have an INFECTION.go to the doctor! if this infection gets into any open area on your skin, you will get very sick, it will get into your blood!!!!! Second of all, you are having any pain moving, on your abdomen, GO TO THE DOCTOR, if you are having sharp pains, GO TO THE DOCTOR. note what you were doing, eating, what postion made the pain stop.
Avatar n tn April, It drained on its own because the pressure built up and basically it ran out of room. The fact that there is still a hard mass or lump is not surprise and what you will find hapeneg is that the infection will start to build up again, then drain again since it now has found an exit. Eventually scarring may take place. It is an ugly cycle and your best bet is to go and have the entire thing removed.
Avatar n tn of meds/dr's, I can tell you just inflammation in throat can close up ear even from drainage/overlooked fluid/sore throat/windy day stimulates drum. Get a 'Coronal CT' & get copy for yourself on All tests. Have Tympanogram ear test (quick plug in ear for 1 min suction). That will pull un-seen fluid in ear to window. It will show 'Serous fluid' if a problem, on graph-print if there. We can all get trapped edema from lack of vent/earpop.
Avatar n tn also with my last comment, its a hard lump, like its a bone and connected to everything. kind of like the one on the inside of your foot, but smaller.
Avatar n tn my 3 yr old had an enlarged yellow lower lip the first 2 vet visit were the same antibiotics steroids and a very large bill w/no relief for my pet he began to sound like he was having a hard time eating and drinking so i went to another vet she opened his mouth causing his to to pretrude and down his throat on the far bck side of his tongue was a growth she was sure it was cancerous so it had to be removed his lip began to clear a little but never really healed completely.
Avatar f tn Though my nose was still a bit smelly, the rankest smell was immediately greatly reduced, so that the awful original smell was far less noticeable unless another person was just a foot away! To dry myself up further, and hopefully maintain this improvement, I followed up with several sprays of regular 12 hour mist and took 2 sudafeds.Happily, this home remedy drastically reduced the smell from my nose, and only required another saline spray ever 4 hours.
Avatar n tn Even now several years later I still get phantum pains as if the left testicle was still there. Most recently in September 2009 I had a abscess over top of my right hernia scar. Currently, I'm still experience pain around the hernia scar as well as in the right testical at times. Left side gives me problems on and off. I also have a neurological condition as well as a neurogenic bladder. For the neurvous sytem nerve pain I have been on Lyrica, but currently am back on Amitriptyline.
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.
299940 tn?1192322967 Headaches - often specifically in the back, right side of my head Frequent sinus infections - I'm on my 5th one in the past 8 months Odd drainage issues - I can only breath out of one nostril clearly. If I want to breath out of the other one, I need to lay on the opposite side to let things move over.
Avatar f tn Some years ago I had Sepsis three times within a six week period. I knew the source. I had a tube inserted into my kidney for drainage following a severed ureter from a MVA. I know how very ill Sepsis can make you and the energy that it drains from you system. The third time I was DX and the hospital called me to return for treatment I cried with my head on my husband's shoulder and said, Please don't take me back to the hospital, just let me die here... I can't take this anymore.
211940 tn?1267884866 In October, 2007, I developed an extremely sore throat, accompanied by an abscess on my tonsil. At the same time, I found that I could not turn my head side-to-side, nor lift my arms forward, sideways, etc. The Sports Medicine doctor took x-rays, which turned out so poorly, he could not determine whether or not I had a hole in my rotator cuff. I was sent to rehab., whereupon I was told that the tissue in my upper arms was filled with knots, and that my shoulder joints were not frozen.
Avatar n tn My mother who is Type 2 Diabetic, experinced these tears along with yeast infections and athletes foot infections all through her 30's and 40's until her diabetes was diagnosed and she got her levels under control. I honestly find it rediculous that the modern medical community, which treats the majority of women's reproductive health problems as shameful, has no flipping idea what causes these tears or how to really treat them.
