Abscess epsom salt

Common Questions and Answers about Abscess epsom salt


Avatar n tn yesterday, and was told it was a vaginal abscess. I'd started soaking in hot epsom salts bath day before yesterday, and she prescribed Avalox yesterday (antibiotic) . Well, this morning, I was quite rudely awakened when it decided to pop and drain. Thank goodness I had undies on - it was a mess! But the relief was instantaneous as far as pain goes. So, I can highly recommend epsom salt baths and Avalox combo for this kind of problem. Oh, and she gave me another Rx for pain.
Avatar m tn I read to keep warm compresses on it, and soak in Epsom salt to bring it to a head. I've tried this for 3 days, at least 4 times a day for 20 minutes. I thought I was making progress due to the fact that it drained a good bit earlier and decreased in size. I took yet another bath and now not only is it right back to the severity that it was, but my outer labia is extremely swollen to at least twice the size. I can barely walk without extreme discomfort, and sitting in a challenge.
Avatar n tn I would recommend seeing a doctor as abcesses can sometimes be attributed to MRSA or other viral and bacterial infections that should be treated with an oral medication. A warm compress with epsom salt may provide you some relief in the mean time make sure not to attempt to rupture the area and keep the area clean and ventilated.
Avatar f tn Thankyouu i will be trying that
Avatar f tn They are very painfull and often abscess. I am soaking in hot epsom salt baths 3-4 times a day. I am 51 yrs. old! Why is this happening?
Avatar f tn Go to Walmart and buy a box of Epsom salt (its by the pharmacy). Pour a bunch in a warm tub and sit for twenty minutes or so, probably three or four days in a row.
Avatar f tn In order to do the sits bath use Epsom salt in warm tub water sit in the warm water for atleast 20 minutes a few times per day. You should see a doctor for an antibiotic. If it gets bigger it may require lancing so try to make sure it doesn't get to that point.
Avatar n tn Also, I've been soaking my finger in Epsom salt and warm water 2 times a day for the last two days.
Avatar m tn I cannot even think of what brought it on. I have soaked in the bathtub today at least 3 times with epsom salt, tried witch hazel.. Nothing seems to alleviate this pain. I don't know if it is a fissure or a Hemorrhoid or what the difference is between the two for that matter.. All I know is I need some support and ideas, that would be fantastic! I need pain relief..
168348 tn?1379360675 Thank you so much for taking such time to post to me. I will reread again .. the one thing I will try tonight is Epsom Salt .. the orig. areas are improving but an area that is above the incision line and below the Adam's Apple has been very red and now is beginning to show signs of becoming more tender, etc. Maybe the Epsom Salt will help things along.
Avatar f tn I've been soaking the wound with warm water mixed with epsom salt, but man, he tries to nip at me everytime I do it. It's really hard to keep him under control, but I might try it with treats tomorrow. Thanks again!!!!!
Avatar f tn I have been getting boils for almost 4 years now. If it is a boil like mine, just know these are not caused by not being clean because believe me when I say, I shower everyday. Here is a website giving more info about boils - the cause of boils, etc.. http://www.medicinenet.com/boils/article.htm The first one appeared when I was pg with our little boy & it was on my buttocks which is also known as pilonidal cyst.
Avatar f tn htm I found this entire article very helpful. Bartholin's cysts are caused by a blocked duct, and if not drained or rupture on their own can abscess. These are usually easily treatable by warm compress (as the above post indicated) and sitz baths (Epsom or Sea salt baths). If the cyst, (regardless of type) doesn't get any better and it starts to hurt to sit stand or walk, you need to see your doctor. When any cyst becomes painful or red and swollen, it has likely abscessed.
5248641 tn?1367590847 and PS, you could also try Epsom salt baths. Epsom salts ARE ground up magnesium, and sometimes it's very soothing to lie in a warm bath and let the Mg absorb through your skin. You wouldn't need both baths and pills at a certain level, but I don't know how to measure that. I took the supplements. It was easier than trying to remember where the bath tub was and how to get in and out of it .......
637356 tn?1301928422 He dipped her in a special dip, gave her a shot of antibiotic, and treated her foot with antibitotics. He instructed me to continue trying to soak her foot in epsom salt and packing it with a mixture of triple antibiotic ointment and bag balm and to place a sock over her foot to keep her from chewing at it as well. Also, he gave her a pill to kill the fleas so that the frontline doesn't have to work as hard and can work quicker.
Avatar f tn I have tried hot baths, baths wtih epsom salt...I though at first maybe it was hemmroids so I tried creams and wipes, nothing is helping at all. I am at the point where I just want it all to go away, however I do not go to dr and I guess I just keep making excuses not to go, in hopes it will just go away. I am just lost as to what it may be. I dont strain to go to bathroom or anything, so wasnt sure what would have gave me hemmroids, if thats what is was.
Avatar m tn I already took one epsom salt bath and it may have help for a little bit but now its just getting bigger. I also took some benadryl but that just made me pass out. I also have a cold. Ugh. Whats wrong with me? I don't have med insurance but maybe I can go to plan parenthood and have one of their doctors take a look.
Avatar f tn Rest when you need,move around as much as possible. Little walks,stay hydrated,Epsom salts,melatonin,imodium.....you just have to getter done Hun. So much better on this side.
Avatar n tn How was your dr visit with the surgeon? I've had these for almost 4 years now. The first one appeared when I was pregnant with my little boy & it was in my buttocks which is also known as pilonidal cyst. So I had it drained & it kept coming back so I had to keep getting it drained because one dr told me to soak in warm water with epsom salt & prescribed me antibiotics to see if it would drain itself & it did work a couple of times.
Avatar f tn But the great news is that I am one day into treatment (all over the counter from Walgreens) and am nearly back to normal. Here is what I did, step by step. 1) sat in a sitz bath- lukewarm water with Epsom salt and baking soda (10 minutes is fine). 2) washed my bumps and basically all external anal and vaginal area by hand with the Walgreens version of hepi cleanse.
Avatar n tn i suffer from abscess down there for yrs. at the moment i have one on my outer labia lip. its extremly painful. ive been to dr and am on antibiotics and painkillers. it has burst after 4 days of soaking in savlon baths. today ive found and burst 2 more that came up on the join of my leg/thigh area. ive had loads of tests but nothing has ever shown up. they are a pain in the butt!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Avatar f tn A hot bath with some 'epsom salts' added can be helpful too - it helped me with my muscle pain. I can understand how stressed you must be right now but do try to relax - it isn't easy I know but if you can relax this will help with the muscle/joint pain. No one can tell you how long it will be before you start to feel better - it is often the case that we can feel worse when on antibiotics - due to the die-off of bacteria. I hope you start to feel better soon.
Avatar n tn cephalexin) because it can worsen. Also, take 5-10 minute sitz baths (warm baths with epsom salt) or use a hot compression to ease discomfort. Hope this helps!
Avatar m tn 2. THE POWER OF SALT Why does salt water work? Simply put, germs need water, and salt takes the water away from the germs. There are two kinds of saline solution. Isotonic solution has the same concentration of salt as the human body. Hypertonic solution is saltier than the water in the human body. Infected and inflamed secretions, like the ones in your sinuses when you have sinus infections and colds, are excessively sticky.
1415174 tn?1453246703 Well, at least the Epsom salt is more comfortable than the vinegar, but at least now you have a back-up plan in case more of this happens in the future. Now that I re-read some of the comments, I didn't have bacterial infection, just fungus, but it was the entire nailbed. Anyway, now you know how effective the vinegar is for just the fungus alone. It actually works well for antibacterial, too, but it is a power engine for the fungus.
Avatar n tn I was to the very very painful point where I could not move without excruitating pain and was almost ready to go to the ER for some relief. 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).
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.
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.
