Common Questions and Answers about Abscess gum boil treatment

abscess

Avatar m tn Gum boil tends to resolve within a week if retreatment of root canal is successful.
691614 tn?1227468251 I have a white lump that has appeared in my gum above my front tooth. It isn't painful but when pressed I feel pressure on my tooth. It has been there about 3 weeks now. What it is?
Avatar n tn As for the swelling, the antibiotics and time will take care of it. If theres a fistula (lil gum boil), sometimes warm salt water will help pull the pus out of the abscess. Otherwise, your dentist can perform an incision and drainage but I wouldn't recommend that route at all. The root canal was done and everything should be fine now. Good luck with hygiene school! Maybe I'll see you at some ADA functions. Best wishes.
Avatar n tn had the same situation needed to go to er because the location of the boils caused my eyes to swell and close I was put on antibiotic levaquin it reduced swelling but my picking the boil or possibly the size of the boil left ice pick scars on face I only had one recurring outbreak since then so I decided to do a 10 day fast with only lemon diluted water red cayenne pepper and maple syrup (a master cleanse) then I built up my immune system by elimininated cane sugar, white bread, junk foods
Avatar n tn I work in the dental field and see things like this periodically. If infection is present...ie a gum boil, swelling, fistula tract, ect...then an antibiotic will help. You may also try taking anti-inflammatory pain med..like advil, etc...or have a pain med prescribed. Most importantly please check with a dentist, doctor, etc... b/c you definitely need to address the tooth. Remember you can always get a second opinion on the rct treatment.
Avatar f tn while on the amoxicillin, I get a abscess/boil/something on my behind in a very uncomfortable spot!!...I've never had one before in my life. It was pretty bad, but burst yesterday and started draining on its own.) At that point, I thought all would be okay, at least until I was done with the antibiotic treatment and went and saw my dentist again. Next, late last night I started to get a 'weird' feeling on the left side of my face.
Avatar f tn while on the amoxicillin, I get a abscess/boil/something on my butt (in the crack- ouch!)..I've never had one before in my life. It was pretty bad, but burst yesterday and started draining on its own.) At that point, I thought all would be okay, at least until I was done with the antibiotic treatment. Next, late last night I started to get a 'weird' feeling on the left side of my face. Hard to describe, like weakness or something, but I figured I just irritated something.
Avatar n tn Unless a person changes their diet, getting rid of all the decay producing sweets, they will continue going through the dentist process; cavities, fillings, more fillings, splitting teeth, root canals, infections, gum disease, root scaling, extractions, bridges, implants and all the rest until dentures. And thats not the end... dental procedures cause aging trauma. A pulled tooth can result in numb toes, an overdose of anesthesia can last for two weeks and cause stomach problems.
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.
Avatar m tn It gently pumps the saline solution into your sinuses, and I don’t know if it pumps saline all the way up into the far reaches of your sinuses, because of gravity, but it follows the same line of treatment expressed here. Neilmed Sinus Rinses squirt saline into the maxillary and ethmoid sinuses. It does not work for infections in the upper sinuses, says so right on the box. It only costs $13 at any local pharmacy. There is also a neti pot, which was demonstrated by Dr.
Avatar n tn Must be the antibiotic shot weakened the abscess membrane and it drained. I have no idea what I did to have this abscess happen. So, right now I am almost half way through my antibiotics and trying to keep from having a yeast infection. It's still red in my clitoris area and I can't do much except rest and take it easy. I have a doctor's appt. next week but I am just so upset about this. I NEVER want to experience something like this again. I'm afraid it will come back.
Avatar f tn I'm not sure if this is a recommendable application for hydrogen peroxide, but after about a month of this treatment my nostrils seem healthy. Just wanted to share my experience hoping it helps someone 'cause this is a nasty little affliction that doctors don't seem to have any kind of handle on.
Avatar n tn Several months ago I noticed a knot behind my ear. At first sight, I thought maybe a large pimple, or boil. I tried everything from hot compress to drawing save to pull out whatever it was, with no luck. I finally called my doctor, and he said cyst. Had my make an appointment to come back a week later for him to lance it. What he told me was it was an infected sweat gland. Once he lanced it, he found multiple very small cysts beside the large one.
Avatar f tn I'm starting to get the same effect. as I was reading the comments I saw a comment that said something about being nerve related and I also have lower back problems as well as neck soreness. Last year I went to see a chiropractor and my spine was shaped like and "s" in stead of being straight. I had a six month treatment which help tremendously. Before I had visited the chiropractor, I was having lots of heart burn and I went to see a doctor for this.
Avatar n tn hey ladies. well i must admit im having some what of the same problem. Its confusing as hell because you all story is so much like mine but at the same time a lot of the sympotms are different so im not absolutely sure that its the same problem. But i do develop a lesion i dont know how often but its less than once a month. It just happens, radomly.
Avatar n tn The kicker is that my husband and I have to BOTH treat our genital areas and our feet with the antifungal ointment (and some couples may require that both partners treat their hands as well for the very tough cases) in order to combat the problem. Again, treatment for the female includes thoroughly treating BOTH PARTNERS. Treatment is outlined beautifully on MayoClinic.com (a reputable website run by a well respected hospital system) at http://www.mayoclinic.
