Abscess drainage methods

Common Questions and Answers about Abscess drainage methods


Avatar m tn Presently, the various methods used are incision and drainage, excision and healing by secondary intention, excision and primary closure and excision with reconstructive flap techniques. Please discuss these options with your doctor. Hygiene, proper dressings after surgery and depilation is the only ways to prevent recurrent pilonidal sinus. It is very difficult to precisely confirm a diagnosis without examination and investigations and the answer is based on the medical information provided.
Avatar n tn In the acute form antibiotics are administered and eventually incision and drainage of the abscess are performed. In the chronical form excision of the diseased milksinus and fibrotic tissue with the nipple is mandatory. We do not hesitate to excise the majority of the milksinuses.
Avatar n tn This study describes our experience with endoscopic lung abscess drainage in patients in whom antibiotic therapy fails. METHODS: Patients in whom antibiotic therapy for lung abscess (enlarging cavity or lack of improvement of clinical status) was unsuccessful were considered candidates if an airway connection to the cavity was present. Treatment decisions were made in a multidisciplinary chest conference. Pigtail catheters were placed via a guidewire approach into the cavities.
Avatar f tn May want to have a rectal- ultrasound to see where the abscess (fistula) is and find out if the abscess is gone. I'm on Medicaid and they covered the tests and surgeries.

Avatar n tn It's very possible it would resolve on its own without drainage; but if she had pain, fever, tenderness, etc, felt to be related to the gallbladder, then drainage is to be considered. Many people get gallbladder attacks and get over them without intervention. When it's in the context of other illness, and appears to be without stones, then treating "medically" without intervention is sometimes a good idea, with the idea that it may or may not need removal in the future.
Avatar f tn Belinda, I am in complete agreement with Linda. Just using Clavamox won't do a bit of good in in itself alone. The clavamox was included in the breakdown to be used AFTER the surgery to avoid infection. Here is something I got from a google search which I hope will help. This condition is very painful for kitty and unless it's very small (in which case, it can be drained so this site says) it looks like unfortunately you're looking at surgery.
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.
Avatar f tn hasn't drained by itself but the surgeon did relieve some pressure by draining a bit. I know want to pursue more natural methods. Trying warm compresses but has not been practical for my daily craziness with work and 2 teenagers. I plan to try the calcium bentonite clay. Any other suggestions appreciated. Also curious to how many in this community are this far out from pregnancy/nursing?
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 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 not a bartholin cyst. I was referred to a GYN who said it is a normal skin abscess. He was going to drain it under general anesthesia but decided to wait one more day. This morning, it felt a bit better but by the end of the day it hurt to walk again and I was now itching (probably a yeast infection from the DR's poking and prodding) I went back to the GYN who said it was no yeast infection, everything looks fine and the abscess is smaller.

Soft Paws are lightweight vinyl nail caps that you glue on the cat's front claws. They're great for households with small children and are extremely useful for people who are away from home all day and can't exercise the watchfulness necessary to train a cat to use a scratching post. Soft Paws® are easy to apply and last about four to six weeks.
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 m tn This book is going to concentrate on acute and chronic sinusitis caused by cold viruses and other viruses which lead to bacterial infections in the sinuses and nasal passages. With the methods I will show you, the yellow and green purulence, which we better know as snot, will be removed from your nasal passages.
Avatar n tn The swe1ling has gone down some but there is still a hard place above the drainage area. I have soaked in a hot tub, applied hot washclothes and been using a product called Prid. A couple of days ago a lot of yellow pus came out and than some very white and then blood. Does anyone know how much longer this will take to heal. I am no longer running a fever but can not handle the pain. Just my panties touching hurts like heck!I just put petro jelly on and seems to be easing up. Is that safe?
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 f tn I went to see my primary care physician about 3 times… a Ear Nose and Throat doctor once… My Primary Care Physicians gave me meds for drainage and an antibiotic. It wasn’t working. I didn’t think a cure was in sight.
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.
Avatar n tn I also shave regularly in that area too so it could be either a swollen gland or ingrown hair (I really hope you can't get an abscess in that region) :S
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.
