Common Questions and Answers about Abscess drainage wiki


Avatar m tn Hi everyone, for 5 years I've been haunted by this abscess in my groin/labia. It comes and goes, sometimes it's gigantic (REALLY) and sometimes just a painful, red, inflamed, deep seated "nodule" (so it doesn't disfigure me completely, but still makes it awfully painful to walk). I had the abscess drained at the hospital once (never again, the anestesia hurt like hell and did not numb the area at all... urgh!) and the material (the pus) was sent for culture....
Avatar n tn The symptoms rang, I had sores on my face, I had a huge abscess on my forehead which had mega amount of puss in it. I am permantely scared . I contracted during a stay in the hospital for my back. If you need to talk feel free to look me up, I am also part of a study now at University of Penn to try and find out everything they can about it.
Avatar f tn Anal abscess is an infected cavity filled with pus found near the anus or rectum. Pus drains out if the skin over the abscess breaks. An abscess usually results from an acute infection of a small gland just inside the anus. An anal fistula, on the other hand, usually results from a previous abscess.It is a small tunnel connecting the anal gland from which the abscess arose to the skin outside the anus.
Avatar f tn Hidradenitis Suppurativa I found the term on another site and did a google wiki search. I don't think I'm dealing with the Montgomery glands thing as suggested but I don't think I can rule anything out until I actually see a real MD.
Avatar n tn I just check on Wikipedia and found this http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sebaceous_cyst It shows pictures of the cyst. This is what I have on my left vaginal lip or it sure looks and sounds like what everyone on here is discribing. Mine just started the other day. I squeezed it a couple times and got some puss. but it is still there!!!! ARRRGGGG!!!
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 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.
