Avatar m tn Dear Guys, I developed abscess three times with in two weeks interval in my groin area.....the last two were big and required surgery with full ansthesia. My doc therefore suggested to escape the shot at least for one week so i did not take the shot last week. I continued to take it again but I developed another abscess on the preannal position. I am afraid it will force me to discontinue the therapy. Has any one exprienced such problem during therapy?

Avatar n tn For 2 weeks I have been dealing with a very painful abscess on my ear, where after alot of research and several trips to a local medical clinic and ER, I have found that what I have is an abscess in the Preauricular pit/sinus. I have been given 3 rounds of antibiotics, one of which I am still taking (Clindamyacin). I have yet to see any improvement from taking the antibiotics, so I went to the ER yesterday where they attempted to do and Incision and Drainage procedure.
1657607 tn?1302280279 Hello, It looks like an abscess or carbuncle. Apply warm compresses and keep the area clean. Drainage is done only when it becomes soft and forms a head. Take some over the counter pain reliever and consult a doctor for examination and antibiotics prescription. Till that time, you can apply Mupirocin or Neosporin on the sore. Also wear cotton clothes and use a mild soap like Dove.
Avatar f tn If you are successful in doing this, keep the area very clean (you can use baby wipes for easy repeated cleaning) and follow this with talc powder to keep the area very very dry. Since you indicate you get recurring groin abscesses, you might also try applying something like polysporin cream regularly to the area, to try and keep new abscesses from forming.
Avatar m tn I was travelling for a month and was having problem in my groin area. My scortum was too sweaty and itchy all the time. Further, on itching , powder like flakes will fall from my scortum and later whole scortum will burn for hours. Cleaning it with cold water and putting some oil would help for few hours only. I couldn't do cleaning every two hours because I was travelling. Coming back home , I read online about ii and symptoms look similar to eczema.
Avatar f tn Hi Dr. My husband has pain in his left groin area that started last night. He then noticed a grape sized lump in the same general area. He said that it hurts when pressure is applied and it seems to cause pain that radiates down his left leg. He broke his left ankle over a year ago so he has had pain in that side of his body occasionally, but that doesn't explain the sudden lump. Any ideas of what it could be? Do you think its necessary for him to go to his Dr?
Avatar n tn It starts as a reddened, tender area that becomes firm and hard. Eventually, the center of the abscess softens and becomes filled with pus. There are several different types of boils depending on the location: furuncle, carbuncle, cystic acne, hidradenitis suppurativa, or pilonidal cyst. Boils could be due to an ingrown hair, breaks in the skin infected with bacteria, foreign material that has become lodged in the skin, or plugged sweat glands that become infected.
Avatar m tn i have a hard lump with a sore on it in the groin area in the inguinal section the sore seems to close up and open a little. The lump is about the size of a walnut, or rubber ball. Some research shows that it could be an abscess, but i dont remember getting cut or anything and it just appeared. it hurt for a little while. and there is some pus, it looked like it was going away and the sore was painful for a few days. any help would be appreciated.
Avatar m tn I now have this zit/abscess/boil on my groin area. Not on testicles or on penis but on the side of by thigh and groin joint area. It is painful when touched. And i have thigh pain too. But i started having thigh pain after I masturbated yesterday. For the past few months i have been having trouble with over masturbation. So i feel a mild pain on the left side of my thigh and inner thigh. Can this boil be genital herpes?
Avatar n tn Hi my partner had a football accident where he ended up taking a blow to the groin area a few weeks back. This resulted in a massive bruise appearing and only just starting to fade. Since doing this he seems to have gained two small lumps in his groin and has been complaining it now hurts the back of his leg to sit down. Do you have any idea ad to what this could be?
Avatar m tn Hello So i am 22 years old male and i noticed that i have 1 little lump at the right and left side of my groin(where the leg joins with the pubic area) and i also noticed that my left lump is a little larger that then right one.It's painless and i am fairly healthy .I have checked at the web and i freaked out because a lot of pp say that painless swollen lymph are dangerous! i cant even sleep now! P.
Avatar m tn This has been going on for about a 2 years. Sometimes it happens every few weeks, sometimes a month, or sometimes I'll get 2 within a few days of each other. I can always tell when there is going to be a breakout, because it will feel like my pubic hair is sore, probably near the base of it. The breakouts always consist of a small cluster of about 6 different sized white pimple like blisters, with red irritated areas around them. The breakout site usually is about a half inch in diameter.
Avatar f tn However, one or two weeks after I discovered a lump on my groin area slightly darker in color of skin. I assume it may be an ingrown hair or abscess but it hasn’t gone away and I discovered another smaller lump maybe two weeks after but no change in skin tone on that one. They are painless and only bothersome when poked at when examining myself and do not itch or seem to grow. Would that be a side effect of the chlamydia even though I already received the treatment?
Avatar m tn Abscesses can develop in many parts of the body, but they usually involve the skin surface. Common sites affected include the armpits, groin, rectal area (perirectal abscess), the external vaginal area (Bartholin's abscess), and along the tailbone (pilonidal abscess). Abscesses can also affect the brain, kidneys, liver (hepatic abscess), lungs, teeth (dental abscess), and tonsils (peritonsillar abscess). Inflammation surrounding hair follicles can lead to the formation of abscesses.
Avatar m tn It does look like a scar of some sort. Do you remember ever having any cyst, boil or abscess in that area or an accident where you may have got a cut? May be one of your parents may have some answers and know it is. Best wishes.
Avatar m tn The hair follicles swell and eventually harden and the skin around the hair peels back leaving an abscess which heals in about a week or so. The swelling reduces dramatically but for the affected follicles, which remain raised and swollen. They are not painful, and produce no visible discharge, blood or pus. Occasionally I'll see what look like tiny whiteheads, but vanish after a few hours leaving flaking skin.
Avatar n tn From your post, it seems that you have a localized infection (abscess) in your groin area. There are signs of inflammation like redness and tenderness. You need to go to your doctor for evaluation. Appropriate antibiotic can be given to control the infection. Good luck.
Avatar f tn About two days ago, I found a large lump on my outer vagina/groin area, near the bikini line. It is about an inch. It is swollen, tender, and red. I don't feel any hard bumps inside, it's just a large lump. It is painful just to walk or sit down. I don't think it is an ingrown hair because I've had those before, and it looks nothing like this. Also, when I had an ingrown hair, it was not this painful as the lump I have right now. Can anyone please help me? It would be much appreciated.
