Abscess formation throat

Common Questions and Answers about Abscess formation throat


Avatar m tn TWO ENTIRELY DIFFERENT THINGS... abscess: An abscess is a localized collection of pus that generally develops in response to infection. An abscess is typically painful, and it appears as a swollen area that is warm to the touch. The skin surrounding an abscess typically appears pink or red. Abscesses can develop in many parts of the body, but they usually involve the skin surface.
Avatar m tn It could also become infected leading to an abscess formation. Sometimes even after it has passed down the GI tract, the sensation in the throat can persist. As you do not have any symptoms now, its best to wait and watch. And good luck. Regards.
Avatar n tn Treatment is usually cold compresses,over the counter anti-inflammatory analgesics(pain killers) like acetaminophen or ibuprofen,antibiotics if cause of infection is suspected to be a bacteria and surgical drainage if there is any abscess formation. Sebaceous cyst is a closed sac that fills with a fatty white material called sebum produced by sebaceous glands of the epidermis.It is usually painless but can become painful if infected.Then antibiotics are needed.

Avatar n tn I have recently had a colonoscopy with the following report (three samples were taken for biopsy) 1) Biopsies, Ileocecal Value -Microscopic colitis without cryptitis or crypt abscess formation 2) Biopsies, Sigmond at 40cm: -Microscopic colitis with single focus of cryptitis, no crypt abscess formation 2) Biopsies, Rectosigmond at 10-15cm: -Chronic colitis without cryptitis or crypt abscess formation Comments: There is no evidence of crypt abscess formation in any of the specimens.
Avatar n tn In the absence of abscess formation, it is probable that the blockage of your right nostril is not caused by a bacterial infection and will not be responsive to further antibiotic therapy. The persistent blockage could be caused by either viral infection, allergy possibly with the development of benign masses, called nasal polyps, or just a benign tumor. Persistence of nasal obstruction for 3 months strongly suggests that whatever this is, it is not going to resolve spontaneously.
Avatar n tn It is possible that you have either an abscess or a chronic infection in the tonsillar tissue. The best person to see is an ENT specialist who can evaluate the situation, perhaps take a culture and let you know the next steps.
Avatar m tn It could further get inflamed causing pain. Further it can lead to abscess formation. If the whole gland is infected or fibrosed it needs to be removed. Post operative recovery will depend on other co morbid conditions like diabetes. Please discuss all the options with your doctor and clear your doubts before consenting for surgery. Hope this helped and do keep us posted.
Avatar n tn It is true that chronic ear infections can sometimes lead to abscess formation that can extend to the brain, but the incidence of this is rather small. Upon your consult with the ENT, discuss with him the pros and cons of having this just observed or operated.

If the lump persists even after compresses and antiinflammatories,then an ENT specialist’s consultation is desirable.

Avatar f tn Mastitis usually starts as an obstruction to the milk flow and then when the milk has not been removed it goes onto being an infection or the formation of an abscess. It also can be germs that from the baby's mouth,nose or throat into a clogged milk duct. The key is to empty the breasts right now as much as possible, get as much bed rest as you can, make sure you are eating properly and get others to help you out too.
Avatar f tn An ultrasound scan is not sensitive to detect infection, though it may be able to detect severe cases with abscess formation or effusion. The scan is likely to have been done by a technician with limited knowledge to read images possibly resulting in the erroneous conversation. The final report is formed after review by a radiologist and if it reports normal, the scan in most probability is likely to be normal. Hope this helps. Take care!
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 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.
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 I started to feel really awful, heart palpitations, feeling of panic coming on, my heart was beating in my throat but the heart rate was not increased. Skipped heart beats. I kept away from that cream for a day and thing started getting better right away. Anyone using this should read the directions carefully and don't start using more than necessary. I often have made the mistake of "more is better.
Avatar m tn If the water goes immediately down your throat, say the word “Go”. Notice how your throat closes off at the beginning of the letter G. That is how you close off your throat when you are filling your nostrils. After you have filled both of your nostrils, pinch them shut. Set down the squeeze bottle. Then, very slowly bend forward, at the waist, until you can look between your legs at the crotch.
Avatar n tn Understood these are becoz of the sweat glands and which eventually create a puss formation around the nerves which gives us more pain I was very much worried as these were occurring often, one lump after the other. then took a few steps which helped me great when U notice a lump in ur under arms immediately please follow the steps below which would give U a least cure 1.
299940 tn?1192322967 The sinus cavities effect inner ear (euschasian tube, dizziness, vertigo), throat (mucus draining into throat/burning sensation), asthma, bronchitis, headaches, neck, stomach, heart rate (blood being pumped to sinuses), teeth pain, the list can go on. SO IF ANY DOCTOR SEES THIS, UNLESS YOU GO THROUGH THE SAME PROBLEMS ,DO NOT BE SO QUICK TO DISMISS SECONDARY SYMPTOMS, IF THEY ARE NOT IN YOUR SO CALLED MEDICAL JOURNALS!!!!!!!!!
Avatar n tn I get prssr back if sore throat because that 1 ET in throat has 'delayed opening' do to the jerks that waited & dismissed. A Coronal is (stomache dwn w/ nose going in) & not skull sinus CT w/ nose up & on back. It's so valuable. I had 3 over 3 yrs & ea showed cyst enlarging. I had copies & that was my leverage. They can also order an ABR test to see if a delay in brain telling ear to work right. Do a print & hi-lite key things & ask ENT nicely to humor him.
Avatar n tn Family thinks I'm hypochondriac doctor won't even give me t3's for the pain my throat is always swollen on one side. Done the gammit of allergy tests, ear docs, eye problems-floaters, ear aches from hell neck and jaw swollen all the time, headaches. reading all of these pages has actually given me some relief! I asked my doctor about the relationship of my ear face and neck pain and he says he's never heard of the relationship between bad teeth and all these symptoms.
Avatar n tn This time the dr ordered the CPM unit for home use and I have been in it 18 hours a day (yup sleep in it) at 120 degrees to maintain range of motion and minimize scar tissue formation. I have been in therapy 4 days a week. Lets hope this is it however my dr states that it is nothing that I have done just my bodies reaction to the trauma of surgery - genetic thing that they can not test for. So if you have continued swelling, pain, warmth etc. don't take it will get better with time.
Avatar n tn heart tests all gud, been on antibiotics fo last two weeks but to no avail, these episodes ae severe during night time, symptoms tends to lessen a little while i make myself busy wth something, Docs are having different opinions ranging from amoebiasis, peptic ulcer to subacute lung infection leading to abscess formation in chest etc. etc. ......some says drinking lot of water may help.
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.
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.
