Abscess drainage home remedies

Common Questions and Answers about Abscess drainage home remedies


Avatar n tn This abscess was visible on pano that was taken in Febr. 2.Is there any home remedies for swelling? Thank YOU!
Avatar f tn Hello, It can be a boil, abscess or infected cyst. 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 on the boil and keep the area clean. Drainage of the boil is done only when it becomes soft and forms a head.
Avatar m tn ( ) and possible home remedies besides warm compression as a first reaction. Thank you so much!
Avatar n tn draining, but than it seems to be acting up again and I can not afford surgery plus taking off work again, do you have any remedies or ideas, I really appreciate your time and advise since you have been down this road. Thanks alot....
Avatar m tn I'm not sure I'd be trying too many home remedies though; unless you are checking them out with the Dr. first. Some things may be OK even though they don't do any good but some might also do some harm or at least complicate matters. Hang in there ....
Avatar f tn The mucus is yellow (some days more than others), and I sleep with those nasal strips. I netti pot 3 times a day and have tried all kinds of home remedies (tea tree oil, etc.) My problem is I do not have health insurance (only catastrophic... $10,000 deductible) and won't get medicare for 3 more years. How do I know if this is really dangerous, without doctor run-around? What are symptoms? Help please.
Avatar f tn Right now we are applying home remedies to take the pus out. Could you plz give the refrence of ur doctor. or tell me the complete thing what you have done to cure ur daughter's problem. Thanks.
Avatar f tn Saw a dentist and doctor recently. I've had all sorts of symptoms for 2 + months. I'm so scared that I hVe a brain abscess. Please help... Thank you...
Avatar n tn So I applied a mixture of calamine lotion, tea tree oil, and witch hazel which caused my situation to flare up even worse! All of these remedies caused this abscess to eventually grow to the size of a golf ball! Well to make a long story short, I was in EXCRUCIATING pain, especially when the abscess grew larger each day. Unfortunately for me, all of this was happening during the weekend and no one was available to help me except the ER.
Avatar n tn Any cyst should prompt you to see your primary doctor, because oral antibiotics are simply not effective without drainage of the cyst/abscess. Sometimes this kind of thing will go away on its own, but can require hospitalization and IV antibiotics in extreme situations. Bottom line - see your primary physician for any non-healing lesion, wound, or persistent hot/swollen/red area.
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 n tn My daughter has the exact same symptoms. We have been to the ENT over and over and he gives us the same story. Stop taking the medicine and it will eventually become dysfunctional. My daughter is 9 now but it started when she was 7. She constantly presses on the gland, to the point it is a mark on her jaw. I had to rush her to the Urgent care, yesterday. They advised that it could be a food allergy; her glands swollen up so bad that her lips, eye lids, tongue we swollen as well.
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 I had soaked in epsom salt a few hours ago giving very minimal relief. I gave the website listed above by amy507 of home remedies a try and found one I was willing to try that seemed logical to me. I used the baking soda mixed with a little bit of water (made it like a thick paste). After the 30 minutes the boil was reduced, but by no means gone, but wow what relief. I cleaned the mixture out and went to apply my neosporin and a gush of blood! I was so excited.
Avatar n tn I have the same thing. Only mine grew in one day. From pea sized to large marble size and it hurts. I can feel it when my arms are down by my side. Im going to the doctors soon its been 2 days no improvement.
Avatar n tn I told her no id deal with it at home. lol ended up laying in a really hot bath and it came to a head and i stuck a needle in it myself. I have had this twice actually. http://www.enlmedical.com/article/000842.htm there is some info for ya. Hope this helps. Take Care!
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 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 So she said no fistula between the colon and vagina. So I went home and went to the bathroom. Well there was blue dye in my urine. So I went back into the office where they drew some urine with a catherer. There was blue tint to it. So she said that it was between my colon and bladder. So I went to the Cleveland Clinic and was checked and they could not find anything. They even did a coloscopy.
Avatar m tn Do this procedure at least twice a day, once in the morning when you wake up, and once in the evening before you go to bed. You may also do it for a third time in the afternoon, or when you come home from work. If your sinus infection is in your upper sinuses (sphenoid, frontal, or upper ethmoid) your results may not be as obvious on your first attempt. Don't give up.
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 n tn Of course, this is the one time in my life when I am without health insurance and will be for a two more months. Any ideas on home remedies and/or the cost of having this cyst injected with something by a doctor. Any help will be greatly appreciated.
Avatar f tn In desperation when it developed very late, the night before my family was to arrive for a weekend visit, I tried a home made saline nasal solution. Using a 12 hour over the counter spray bottle, emptied of its contents, I added my own saline - an ounce or two warmed a bit- into the plastic spray bottle.My homemade concoction was made from a tablespoon of table salt dissolved in a 1/2 cup of water with just a small part added to my spray bottle.
Avatar n tn See your doctor if it worries, clearly it could be anything from an ingrown hair to a cyst, so guessing won't do anyone any good. Best get it checked out! always always always go to the doctor!
Avatar n tn This can occur after previous spinal irritation but can commence even from sitting too long. I am trying mineral remedies such as magnesium and some calcium along with mild strengthening exercises. Hope this is a little bit helpful.

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.
