Avatar f tn Hello, Long ingrown hair may cause aggravation of symptoms because friction has caused hair to penetrate skin, which resulted into abscess formation and the attempt to remove it was premature or incomplete. Though later pus came out from it, part of hair must be inside causing recurrent pus formation. Such situation does not allow the wound to heal and cause indurations (Hardness with increase in size).

Avatar f tn For this kind of rash angular cheilitis and any infected hair follicle or abscess formation also needs to be ruled out. Angular cheilitis is found at the corners of mouth which are caused by infection. Dry out the lesions completely by patting and air drying after washing with a mild soap. If the symptoms persist then please consult a dermatologist as oral antimicrobials may be needed.

483165 tn?1208531596 //en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Perianal_abscess You need further evaluation by a physician. An internist may be able to assess you completely and suggest for referrals if further intervention may be indicated. You may be needing oral antibiotics. Keep the area clean and dry and wash only with mild and bland cleansers. Have you been diagnosed with diabetes before? Any other similar lesions in other parts of the body?
1356258 tn?1277667850 They had eye infections (swollen/red around eyes, so much gunk that eyes were matted shut, upper respiratory) and the vet gave them eye ointment and oral antibiotics for 2 weeks (they finished 2 days ago) and seem to be better except for the occasional sneeze (the other one might be squinting a little today). I am not sure if it was bacterial or viral, but my husband and myself caught it, and the antibiotic eye drops have helped.

Avatar m tn Hi, The severe pain and the swelling in the jaw indicate that the infection has spread and also there is a possibility of abscess formation. Hence you can continue with the antibiotics and the anti-inflammatory agents. However you urgently need to consult a dentist. Hope this helps. The answer is based on information provided. Exact advice is not possible without a proper examination and investigations. You are requested to consult your Doctor. Take care and keep us posted.
Avatar m tn The common organisms responsible are commonly Staphylococcus aureus or Streptococcus pyogenes. The presentations can include abscess formation, cellulitis, lymphangitis, or ulceration. Boils may persist to occur weeks or months after a traveler returns and, if associated with S. aureus, definitive treatment usually involves decolonization with nasal mupirocin, a skin wash with an antimicrobial skin cleanser, and often an oral antibiotic combination .
Avatar n tn Surgical removal of the abscess as a whole is required. The abscess capsule needs to be removed as well. Once the abscess has been removed, the inciting tooth needs to be extracted, even if it is still firmly attached. Ideally the wound should be left open and filled with antibiotics. Common treatments of the open wound include antibiotic beads, antibiotic swabs/sponges, gels, ointments and manuka honey.
Avatar m tn The fistula is linked to alot of bad things .Most anal fistulas originate in anal crypts, which become infected with abscess formation. When the abscess is opened or ruptures, a fistula is formedcauses of anal fistulas include opened perianal or ischiorectal abscesses, which drain spontaneously through these fistulous tracts. Fistulas are also found in patients with inflammatory bowel disease, particularly Crohn disease.[3] The incidence of fissures in Crohn disease is 30-50%.
Avatar n tn The surgeon did an open surgery, and I stayed at the hospital for 5 days on antibiotic IV, followed by oral antibiotics after I was discharged. 2 weeks after the appendectomy, I was re-admitted for an abscess in my lower abdomen, about the size of a grapefruit, it was drained successfully (5 more days hospitalization), and I believe it hasn't come back - the hospital did a CBC blood count test a week after I was discharged and it turned out normal.
578743 tn?1218557817 Nodes can have necrotic areas as a result of several factors such as outgrowing of blood supply or damage by bacteria. Abscess formation usually develops from this necrotic areas of nodes (or any other tissues for that matter). I believe that the biopsy result would give us all the answers we need. From her blood picture, it really seemed that she has had a serious bacterial infection.
Avatar f tn Also, they would be really painful, even if for some reason they were contained in the toe region. Also, there would be formation of pus pockets or abscess. However, only culture of the peels can confirm that. The first possibility is fungal infection. The fungal infection can be due to candida or Tinea. Other fungal infections are less common. The symptoms can be an itchy peely lesion that bleeds on scratching. The diagnosis is confirmed through KOH preparations or through cultures.
Avatar m tn Palpable mass left lower quadrant Axial slices of the whole abdomen taken at 10.0mm interval without and with oral non-ionic IV contrast reveal a 2.0cm long ectasia of the distal abdominal aorta before its iliac bifucation, measuring approx. 2.8 cm in its maximal diameter with demonstrable intraluminal thin hypodense rim consistent with minimal thrombus formation found along its posterior wall.
Avatar n tn Complications Complications of rectal ulcer may include excessive rectal bleeding (hemorrhage), extreme disturbance of bowel function, formation of an abscess, formation of a hole (perforation) through the rectal wall beneath the ulcer, and surgical infection.
Avatar n tn There may be an infective focus, and probably abscess formation. A fracture would have been a lot more unbearable. I would suggest you consult your dental surgeon soon. You will probably need to get an X ray of the paranasal sinuses.
Avatar n tn i am a conscientious 57 year old. a good oral surgoen has just successfully extracted one of my upper molars. this molar was root filled 20 years ago following 18 months of sensitivity. during those years a bit of sensitivity remained in the roof of my mouth to the touch of my tongue. i was told this was a sort of phantom pain which could be ignored. 7 months ago the molar became so sensitive i couldn't bite on it.
Avatar f tn A doctor examined me, noted severe infection/abscess, I had slightly elevated white blood cell count at this point, and she put me on cefdinir for 30 days. This helped diminish lump, but infection still spread, jaw became increasingly sore, and fever/malaise worsened into flu-like feeling but I had no respiratory symptoms.
621465 tn?1221541188 It may be due to some abscess formation in the armpit,lymph node swelling(due to infections of the lungs,oral cavity including teeth or malignancy of the mammary glands) or a lipoma. Constant smells may be a result of some pathology in the olfactory nerve or smell centre in the brain. I feel that an evaluation by a physician or a surgeon is a must. Hope it helps.Take care and pls do keep me posted on how you are doing.
Avatar f tn Now lips and chin number. On 2 antiobiotics since original opening of abscess--Flagyl and Clindomycin. Area of abscess better but pain in face and numbers lingers on. Have felt very sick. WBC was normal but this was after many days on antibiotic. Sed rate high. Went to dentist first who thought it was salivary gland infection-def not a tooth. Went to ENT and she said not salivary gland. They could see infected area.

Avatar f tn Ok This is gross. I've had an abscess on my gum for at least 6 months now, and can't afford to go get it taken care of. So every few days I do a little self surgery, with an exacto blade to relieve the pressure. Its disgusting but cool at the same time, like popping the most giant zit. So gross, so gross. Hiding my head now.
Avatar m tn One of the causes of maxillary sinusitis is a tooth abscess that has leaked the infection into the maxillary sinus. The teeth may be X-rayed to find this. • Ethmoid sinuses. If infection occurs, you may get puffy eyes and pain between them. The sides of your nose may get tender to the touch, your nose may get stuffy, and you won’t be able to smell so well. You may also get a splitting headache, felt most intensely in the forehead. • Sphenoid sinuses.
Avatar f tn Thanks Opus. Lilly and I have looked over the links. She is sitting here next to keyboard and purring right now. She says that having plasma cell pododermatitis isn't fun but it isn't too bad. At least she got out of the animal shelter as a kitten after selecting Odin to take her home. Now she has fresh food, a full time servant and numerous retainers. Lilly has agreed to try and eat less fish and more rabbit. Not too difficult as she really likes rabbit.
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.
299940 tn?1192322967 I truly believe the botched root canal I had caused some sort of massive and chronic infection in my sinuses, which also led to the tonsil abcess (which was terrible pain and almost blocked my airway). Finally now, my oral surgeon who removed my wisdom teeth is sending me for an MRI of the sinuses and jaw bone. I pray they figure this out because now I have random numbness with intense pain and extreme fatigue, all worsened by cold air and cleaning products.
