Avatar f tn So I have severe hypochondria (health anxiety) and I am so so scared of getting a brain infection/brain abscess. I have heard one of the ways of this happening is by an infection in the ear. Now about a month ago I had Otitis Externa (outer ear infection) which was really painful and took about 2 weeks to completely clear up. I have really itchy ears at the moment because I have eczema inside so I am hoping thats all it is.
945369 tn?1320833037 It is leaking pus and milk all the time. My body is still producing milk in the operated breast. Are there any known side effects or long term issues with taking medicines for suppressing lactation?
Avatar n tn I researched the different types of abscesses and saw one called gingivital abscess. It is more common in children who bite fingernails and college students who eat popcorn. Basically, a piece of fingernail or the hull gets stuck between the gum and the tooth and causes an infection, which in rare cases leads to a fistula forming. I bite my nails and I eat popcorn.
Avatar n tn I have what seemed to start out as a pimple in the fatty tissue area of my right breast. It drained like a pimple would, but now seems to be black and blue..with tiny little black spots over the "pimple" area. It's primariy above the surface of the skin, but I can also feel a little "root"/ball underneath. The lump underneath is tiny and moveable. In fact, if I move it around, puss seems to secrete from the "pimple".

Avatar n tn Children weighing 88 pounds and over should follow the recommended adult dose schedule. Children weighing under 88 pounds will have their dosage determined by their weight.
503418 tn?1231102336 I am glad you mentioned about Hashimotos. In this case some people undergo a hyperthyroid stage in between and then become hypothyroid again. They can the develop swelling in any lobe of the thyroid gland called goiter. A thyroid scan can pick up such swellings and also radioactive iodine uptake scans can also be performed. Please do not poke the swelling too much.
Avatar f tn Thank god, my results came back benign and he drained my breast which he said could have filled an intire glass full. I was left with a gapping hole in my breast that you could fit a roll of quarters in. My recovery went well and to date I haven't had any reocurring lumps. I have been reading a little on this subject but am in the dark about what exactly happened to me. Also I have read that it is common to have this come back with my next pregnancy. I am 26 now and have a beautiful daughter.
Avatar n tn I have just been told my 5year old daughter has an abscess on front tooth (she has no pain though so I find it odd) The dentist has looked at the xray and suggested we extract her front tooth as it has a possibility of damaging her permanent teeth. I'm really worried that this will be traumatic for her. (I live in South America and don't speak much spanish so the language barrier is also a huge problem) I am unsure of what the procedure is. Can anyone help ease my mind or have suggestions?

Avatar m tn These bad odors might smell rotten or burned and they tend to occur only in one nostril. In my case, the unpleasant smells started when I sniffed, blew my nose, sneezed or laughed. However they can also manifest for no obvious reason. This disorder progresses over time, but you will probably NOT notice that unpleasant odor directly after you wake up (at least at first). When these smells first appeared, I got temporary relief by pinching on my nose and holding my breath.
Avatar n tn This morning, it felt a bit better but by the end of the day it hurt to walk again and I was now itching (probably a yeast infection from the DR's poking and prodding) I went back to the GYN who said it was no yeast infection, everything looks fine and the abscess is smaller. Maybe he didnt remember me but my abscess has doubled in size since yesterday. It now burns when I pee. I have been doing sitz baths since I discovered it and nothing is working. He said antibiotics wont help.
Avatar n tn Sounds like your daughter doesn't fit the diagnosis of MS (which isn't common in children anyway). Most research hospitals aren't good at diagnosing lyme if the test comes up negative (which can happen). I'm not sure if they have considered lyme as a possibility - they often do not. At the minimum, they should be running lyme tests on her CSF fluid and blood.
Avatar f tn This illness has completely disrupted my life and has greatly affected my husband and my two young children. I can't participate in my daily life anymore and am in constant pain. I am terrified at the possibility of going through this again. Any input would be much appreciated! I am willing to travel to get proper treatment. Thank you.
Avatar m tn [60] Staphylococcus and Streptococcus are the most common causative organisms in adults, Haemophilus influenzae in children. Less common organisms are Pseudomonas and Escherichia coli. Orbital symptoms are pain, lid edema and erythema, chemosis, and axial proptosis if diffuse disease occurs or axial displacement (of the orbit) if an abscess forms. Decreased ocular motility is common, and intraocular pressure may be elevated. Systemic symptoms may include malaise and fever.
Avatar n tn As far as the memory issues, well. . .I am a mother of 6 and grandmother of 5 so far, and I AM in my mid-40's. I believe that children steal brain cells anyway! For Wuu108, I am all for any further enlightenment or spiritual awareness or whatever you want to call it. Over that past 2 years, I would say that I have much more heightened spiritual awareness, but I'm not sure it has anything to do with the dent in my skull. But I think I will contemplate what you posted.
Avatar f tn hi i havent been on here lately but have just seen your posts, im glad they have found what seems to be the issue, they also said last year my daughter may have cat scratch too and we have cats so could of fit in BUT my cats never ever would scratch the children they are far too loving and when they admitted her she had no scratches on her lower limbs (apparently due to her groin lymphs being up and infected if it was cat scratch she would of had a mark on her lower leg or foot but she didnt) Ma
Avatar f tn Could these symptoms be a reaction to the infection I had 4 months ago or has the infection triggered something? I live in a very rural area in SW France (1hr from Toulouse) and am not fluent in French so am finding it difficult to know what to do. I feel like I should be doing more i.e. seeing a specialist or something. I hate taking pills and would much rather relieve my symptoms through exercise and natural remedies, but I’m not sure where to start or who to see.
2186126 tn?1384961026 ( She was my princess (and baby since I dont have any children) and I loved her so much and loved her MORE than I ever could during those last months. The vet told me she wasn't in any pain and just to expect her to grow weak and she did. Just love him as much as possible, be his best friend as he needs you now more than ever. I wish you the best!! And again, I'm so sorry to hear. If you have anymore questions please feel free to ask.
Avatar n tn The case in that link was about HYPERthyroid being caused by an abscess (pus pocket) caused by Staph. in the thyroid gland. The abscess could arise by a pyriform sinus fistula, which is not a typical sinus we think of when discussing a typical "sinus infection". Those are typically the frontal, maxillary, ethmoid, and perhaps sphenoidal sinuses.
Avatar m tn This is a very unfortunate situation. But also, very comment in here. My opinion only, and I'm not medical, but if he's not in jail "jail" and in a holding type cell for a few days, leave hime there. If he's in general jail, he can get drugs anyway? I don't know if this is possible but can u not go talk to the sherriffs office, tell them what's going on and see if their medical dept can help him while in there?
Avatar f tn Hi, Acute cerebellar ataxia presents with a sudden, uncoordinated muscle movement due to disease or injury to the cerebellum in the brain. This may occur after an infection such as chickenpox, Coxsackie disease, Epstein-Barr, and echovirus. Other causes include a, bleeding, multiple sclerosis, abscess, alcohol, medications, vaccination and insecticides. Hope this helps. Diagnosis is through medical history and imaging studies like ct scan or mri. Take care and regards.
Avatar n tn Since I fell and tore my knee I have been feeling weakness in lower back and legs. Accompanied with numbness from my head to my toes on the right side. I have seen a DR and they told me that the lump was superficial and to leave it alone he asked if I had bruised it in the past I have not. He said there may be something going on with my back I had this DR through workers comp I have no DR any longer. My neck feels weird.
579258 tn?1250652943 therefore clinically significant disease most frequently occurs as an opportunistic infection in those with a weak immune system, such as small children, the elderly, and the immunocompromised. Nocardia may also cause a variety of cutaneous infections such as actinomycetoma (especially Nocardia brasiliensis), lymphocutaneous disease, cellulitis and subcutaneous abscesses. Antibiotic therapy with a sulfonamide, most commonly trimethoprim-sulfamethoxazole, is the treatment of choice.
Avatar f tn I am surprised your surgeon has not excluded inflammatory cancer or GM by doing biopsy. However, my biopsy also triggered abscesses ( I think). I guess the breast is too inflamed for biopsy. But talk to them to exclude these conditions. You might be developing an abscess. Try a strict diet for some days to see if you can prevent it. Some people in this forum were helped including myself. One person mentioned medically controlled fasting.
Avatar m tn the other half will disagree. Tonsillectomies in adults are more dangerous than in children because of bleeding. Expect to be in the hospital for up to 6 weeks. I'm not saying that is how long you will be there, I'm just saying that it " could " take that long. The general consensus is that unless you get tonsillitis more than twice a year, they should not be removed. I guess only you and your doctor can decide what is best for you.
