abscess

916383 tn?1286388097 Hello, From the symptoms it looks like an abscess or cellulitis. An abscess 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. Apply hot compresses on the bumpYou need to consult a doctor for its drainage or for prescription of antibiotics. Till then apply calamine lotion and some topical antibiotic like Neosporin on the rash .
Avatar m tn perhaps it could be a gumboil.A gumboil is usually caused by an abscess at the root of the tooth. Often, this abscess is caused by food caught in pockets at the gumline. The infection forms at the root, and then eats away at the gum tissue, eventually creating a channel that leads to the gum surface. Once the channel reaches the gum surface, it appears to be a pimple or raised, white growth. Gumboils often (though not always) hurt, and sometimes the tooth feels raised or displaced.

454046 tn?1244569193 I wonder if it is a stitch abscess. Do a search in the archives for ChitChatNine Stitch Abscess or Spitting Stitches and you'll find my old posts. Someplace I have a pic of my little bumpy #2 ..... you couldn't miss it .. The tight is from the surgery most likely (but I'm not a Dr) ..... there are mega internal stitches inside. In about 10 days it starts to ease up. hears to the surf my friend CHEERS!

5860291 tn?1379195535 I had this for last 8 months....cancer scare, 6 superficial oozing abscess, pain, fatigue, and 5 months of antibiotic, drainage etc..no use...surgeon said i may need more than 3 years to get better... Now, Homepathy is my saviour..started taking it on 8th Aug..(see my old posts on this)...it is helping me a lot, but i need to be on strict homepathic diet for it to work properly. Over last one month since I started it, my lump is almost half size to the amazement of my surgeon...
Avatar m tn Please help if you can, the photo is of the wound I have at the moment, and you can see other existing scars that I have around it.
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.
