702286 tn?1239015260 After a very long night in the ER, I was moved to the heart hosp because I was now in heart issues. The hand dr came and and within a few minutes had it all figured out. It was "STREP" No not STAFF- STREP. It started on my finger tip and would have taken my hand in a matter of a few hours if I had not gone to the ER. I had to have a operation right in the ER and spent 5 days on IV antibiotics. Worse pain then labor.
Avatar m tn I have been on clindamycin 150mg 2 every 8 hours for 4 days with a gum abscess.

Avatar f tn The infection may also be introduced through a skull fracture following a head trauma or surgical procedures. Brain abscess is usually associated with congenital heart disease in young children. The most frequent presenting symptoms are headache, drowsiness, confusion, seizures, hemiparesis or speech difficulties together with fever with a rapidly progressive course. The symptoms and findings depend largely on the specific location of the abscess in the brain.
Avatar n tn Soft tissue abscess may not be present on x-ray, but can be easily seen clinically. If your doctors can not identify the presence of abscess, it's probably not present. Part of your symptomatology does suggest migraine. Seeing an orofacial pain specialist is advised.
Avatar n tn It is in the same general area of the two upper teeth that I need crowned. I have had those teeth X-rayed, and there was no abscess. I had a hole in my heart closed in august 2009 and I take preventative antibiotics for all my dental work because of risk of infection. I have been having these kinds of symptoms since November 2009. I am worried I have a dental infection spreading from neglected dental work, that was complicated by a mis-diagnosis. Sorry for dragging this on, and on.
Avatar n tn 1) There are several different types of abscess but the most common is a periapical abscess in which there is a cavity in the tooth that invades the pulp of the tooth. The bacteria then travels down the pulp into the jawbone and begins to destroy the jawbone.
Avatar n tn Let me tell you from FIRST HAND experience because just had emergency surgery because my outer lip got SUPER swollen and in just 2 days it showed to be an aggressive abscess in just 2 days that abscess got 2 inches deep and took over my entire outer lip that it looked like I had elephantitus and the open sore was getting larger at a very rapid rate of speed, something told me to go to the emergency room that my life was in danger because of it so "from the time I got there to the time the s
Avatar n tn The pus forms inside the abscess as the body responds to the bacteria. Antibiotics are not required in the treatment of a simple abscess, unless the infection is spreading into the skin around the wound known as "cellulitis" (which I had).
Avatar f tn Over the past couple days I developed an extremely painful abscess. In an attempt to clean my mouth using coconut oil the abscess burst. I believe I didn't swallow any of the liquid leaking out and throughly rinsed my mouth with salt water and then some hydrogen peroxide. I will be receiving insurance in about 2 weeks from my new job so I am hoping I can hold off going to the dentist till then.
Avatar n tn So we brought her in again and the doctor found an abscess in her mouth and the tooth that hurt her in August was a bit grey. We went right to the dentist and he said the nerve was dead, she needed a root canal. Her jaw pain is almost gone but she is still extremely fatigued,and has shortness of breath even when doing stairs. She had bloodwork done and her c-reactive protein is elevated. She had an EKG and it showed left atrium enlarged. We are waiting to get in to see the cardiologist.
Avatar f tn I am feeling no pain in my mouth and the swelling is all gone. Now I'm not sure if the infection is in my heart. I don't know what the symptoms are, but I am feeling soreness in my left arm, and every now and then I feel pain in my shoulder. I am a smoker so I don't know if the pain is from smoking or from an infection I may have received from the tooth abscess. My question is, what are the symptoms of an infection in the heart?
Avatar f tn If I would have an opening somewhere in the heart or a valve it could cause serious problems. All this relates to the fact that I had a bad experience with all the staff including the dentist about 8 years ago. I had three root canals done, one cap stayed on even though it was never at the right level. Ten days after my root canal I could not chew a soft shrimp because I had pain from the root area. Pain like a cavity/nerve pain.
Avatar n tn He said that he's got a tooth abscess in a healthy tooth and that the tooth should be extracted. He said it is unusual in cats and that they don't know the cause. He also suggested some antibiotics for a few days before the surgery to help with the infection. Just wondering if it is worth trying to save the tooth. Go through the course of antibiotics and see if he gets better. My vet made me feel like I was just being cheap and that conventional wisdom is to just remove the tooth.
Avatar m tn can someone here tell me if i am doing damage to my heart with this abscess? my vital signs are not too good and i feel like i have the flu. i do not want to go to the emergency room and i can't go to the dentist because i am really afraid of blood. will this abscess go away by itself?? thanks guys.
Avatar m tn and due to the fact that I'm the 1%, i don't have the funds to be dropping on them, so... i live in pain for the past 28 years of my life... Two days ago a tooth that has been cracked for about 6 months developed an abscess.. i got the routine pain along with a bit of swelling, however no bubble in the gum line.. I woke up yesterday with a bit of swelling in the cheek, and put myself on amoxicillin which i have plenty left from previous incidents..

1219288 tn?1266694789 went to the ER this morning because Boil Had gotten bigger and PAINFUL!!! IT WAS exactly in the same area as the last one. meaning that it was not completely lanced the first time. DO YOU THINK THAT I SHOULD HAVE CONTINUED TO SEE A PCP??? LOL.. JUST wondering!!! just do not think that would have helped considering that the PAIN WAS BEYOND INTENSE!!!
Avatar m tn A week ago I could barely open my jaw, I set a dentists appointment however, the night before that my face blew up in swelling. Not just normal swelling either. My face was rock hard and huge. I went to Urgent Care. I was admitted to the ER 'due the size of my face' and eventually transferred to another hospital 35 minutes away that had an oral surgical team. When I arrived there, I was told I'd be having an operation. I was a little thrown, but I usually just let the doctors do their thing!
Avatar n tn After a long stay in hospital I on every antibiotic you can think of I was able to come home with a pic line in that fed the antibiotics to my blood via a line into my heart. This was changed every 24 hours by a community nurse. It took a very long time to get well. About 2 years in fact and I don't feel I ever fully recovered. I have had bouts of pneumonia and pleurisy since where I have been hospitalized and treated with drugs such as Gentamicin.

Avatar n tn I do not want to leave the tooth as is if I am going to cause long term serious damage to myself (heart valves). Is there any information on links between dental abscess and heart valve damage? And how long will it take for this damage to occur? (I know this will be just a range--as each person is different) Any help or guidence would be greatly appreciated.

Avatar f tn Annie, Rosie & Jackie, Thank you so much for your kind words and for sharing your experiences with me. It is good news that there is positive outcomes as what I'd previously read was mainly negative and I wasn't sure what to think or do. I will speak with the consultant about the HSG being mainly for the tubes and see what they say about an MRI as she didn't mention it to us.
